Wonderful works of art everyone. Thanks for sharing and especially those who have been so busy with convention too. Can't wait to try all the new CTMH products and the Cricut cartridge too. Have a wonderful Crafting Week.

Beautiful works of art, ladies!! I have one question, When does the challege officially begin and end. I've often thought of entering but with only weekends to work on my art, I'm thinking that the challenge is over by then. I looked thru the rules but I must be missing it. Thanks!

Love dollies and lace. I made this card from a special dollie that came all the way from across the pond.........

I've used doiles before, but never lace. I decided to tea dye white lace and make a flower. I was nervous to try several different techniques with this card, but I'm glad that I did. Thanks for challenging me!

Great challenge, and beautiful paper art, everyone!
Thanks for clarifying the "time frame" Karen!
Thanks for all the inspiration, one and all! I need to dig into my lace collection. :)

Great job on the sketch ladies! I found it to be quite a challenge, but you guys made it look easy. :-)

Had to make two because I wasn't thrilled with the first one.

Also used the colors from the CTMH Color Dare Challenge blog.
