Lavender & Lace

Hello my "Shabby Friends"
Here it is Monday again and time for another challenge at 
This week I am the hostess and I chose the photo below for inspiration
and to use Lavender cream/white and include lace/doily and distressing.

Our sponsor this week is "The Cutting Cafe" and they so generously
gave each of the DT girls a cut file in our choice of a tulip or a window sill card.

You can see by my card which one I chose!!

After hand cutting my window and shutters I used an IO Background stamp
called Cracked Paint for my distressing.....
I inked it with going gray and really love how it turned out!

My curtains are the "lace" part of the challenge.....
I used a JustRite vintage lace background stamp for my lacey look!

The kitty, hollyhocks, and birdhouse are all IO dies ....
I had to add my "signature" gingham ribbon for the bow!!
I think it turned out super cute and head on over to "the tea room"
and see what my "shabby girlfriends" and our guest designers have for you...
they will knock your socks off...really!!

Entering the following challenges:  
Amusing .... Dies
Ladybug Crafts .... Something for men and/or Use Your Dies
A Gem of A Challenge .... use Gingham Ribbon and/or Design paper
Craft-Dee Bowz .... Anything Goes With A Handmade Bow
Crafting From The Heart .... Anything Goes
