Hi there!
Just quickly popping in to share this card - cutting close to the challenge deadline again! ;)

My sister found this Noteworthy paper pack at an old shop, and called me up to see if I would like it. 'Are you kidding?!' I had just discovered this line when it was discontinued, so it was very hard to find online (not to mention the few places that had it had ridiculous prices), so imagine how happy I was when she told me the paper pack was there, and for only three bucks!
I'm not much of a purple person, but this line is too sweet not to love! :) So I made a purple card, with lace, following Clare's challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room.

Instructions: Go shabby.

Don't you just love the pom pom trim? My super sweet friend Theresa sent me it, along with the pink lace and button shown, and lots of other goodies - thanks again, Theresa! :)

Thanks SO much for all the sweet comments - I really appreciate each and every single one! :)

PS - I asked awhile back if anyone had any suggestions for a light box, and unfortunately no one did, but you wanted to know if I found anything. Well, so far, not so good, but I am trying something else, but I haven't had the time to see how the photos turned out. Will let you know when I do! :)
