Challenge 2 - Lace it up!!

Wow!! Didn't that week go so fast. I would just like to thank everyone who joined in with our first challenge - I really didn't expect so many with it being our first. The winner of the prize will be announced later today so don't forget to check back to see if it's you!!

Our challenge this week is :~ Lace it up!!

We would like to see the use of lace on your projects, this could be paper lace, frilly lace a shoe lace!! Just let your imagination go wild!!

It's entirely your choice what you make - card, Lay out, atc, etc anything goes as long as it features at least one House Mouse or Friends image and follows the 'Lace' theme.

Here's what our lovely DT have produced and don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!






Please leave us a comment with a link to your card. For those who don't have a blog please feel free to email them to me.

Wahoo! Another old challenge checked off my list. I actually don't have any 'real' lace in my stash (which is why I kept putting this one off), but had an AHA moment and decided to create a LACED edging on my card. Check it out:
