A Fancy Surprise...

Happy Magical Monday!

I didn't get to use Nina's "Fancy Surprise" image when she released it at the time of our blog hop, so this week was just perfect for it.



Selma was our challenge hostess this week. We could choose any image that we desired, but with a couple of twists! We were to use at least one circle and lace! How much fun! I had this funky lace trim that I've been wanting to use on something, so that's what I did! You can't tell from the photo, but the icing, and ribbon are both shined up with some Glossy Accents! Due to some issues here at home, I had to work this up very quickly. I'm not crazy about it, but as some of you have said, "If all our cards were perfect, we couldn't call them challenges"! Hope you like it.


For this week's challenge, you can choose an image from TMITA/PCC that you already have, or you can grab what Nina has posted. Be sure to use some lace and at least one circle on your card. Come back to TMITA and link up your card with Mr. Linky for a chance to win this:


I can't wait to see what you create! Have a great week!

Patti J...I think this looks perfect. I love that lace and oh how yummy that cupcake looks. Hope you have a great day. We are getting a bunch of snow today. I have 2 extra, loud girls at my house today and I sure hope I can get them home:)

This card is simply gorgeous! Love your lace trim and the color combo is perfect for the little mouse drooling and trying to get to the icing! OK, I'm projecting, 'I want the icing!'
Have fun at the upcoming workshop you're doing, wish I could go, alas, no more snow days for now!

Your card is too cute. I'll do anything for a cupcake and buttons! I'm putting this challenge on my to do list for this week. Now all I need is a printer and some supplies...

Lovely card Patti, that lace ribbon is fantastic. I can't even tell where it begins or end around the circle, which would be my personal concern in creating it.

Counting the days until pitchers and catchers arrive.....

Selma said...
