H2H Challenge: Doilies and Lace

This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is to use doilies and/or lace on a project. Get in touch with your feminine side and play along with us! You can use real or stamped doilies or lace on your project, as long as you use Close To My Heart products too. We've got great prizes each month, so create a project, post it online, and link up at H2H for a chance to win. Plus, you'll be getting crafty and using your stuff instead of collecting it!

While searching through my stash, I found these pretty square doilies. I decided to make a wall hanging for my kitchen to remind me to slow down a bit and savor life. I used a Ponderosa Pine cardstock base slightly larger than the doily to match my kitchen, which also happens to be decorated with teapots and tea cups. To keep it soft, I paired it with Juniper (and Grey Wool and silver accents). Since hubby likes coffee, I prefer tea, and the girls adore hot cocoa, I didn't add any words to this steaming cup of goodness other than the sentiment "Celebrate the everyday." I hope that you'll do just that!

Again, be sure to find some doilies or lace from your collection and create to your heart's content at Heart 2 Heart challenges.

I got to see this "in the real" yesterday at class, and it is darling. I may have to borrow the idea. (at some future time) Good luck with today's projects!
