Its lovely lace at Creative Inspirations

Good morning to you! Thanks for all your lovely comments over the last few posts - now I can't remember whether it was Kate or Hazel who asked me what ATC stands for - sorry ladies - but the answer is Artists Trading Cards - the idea is that its a single piece of card measuring 2 and a half inches by 3 and a half inches that you decorate up in your style and swap with others - its a way of getting inspiration and the small size can be quite a challenge in itself!!!! I do enjoy doing them and have started to get a little collection of other peoples work which is lovely - a place to dip into for inspiration if I'm feeling a bit blocked! Anyway - hope that helps!!!! If any of you should fancy doing an ATC swap with me let me know and we'll see what we can do!

Today its time for a new challenge at Creative Inspirations. The theme this week is lovely lace. I've used a script folder from embossalicious on kraft cardand a card blank from craftwork cards - I think. The image, lace and crocheted flower are all from crafty individuals - the image has been stamped in sepia archival and simply left! Its a very simple little card but I like it! Hope you do too xx



To join in with the challenge all you need to do is include some lace on your creations. This could be by using some of the fabric or lace designed Die's and Punches!

This week the challenge sponsor is CLASSY CRAFTS who are giving the Winner a £10 Voucher!



I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
