Good morning, it's Pauline here and it is my turn to choose the theme for the next fortnight's challenge. I have chosen Love and Romance - it doesn't have to be a Valentine card, just as long as there is a love theme of some sort.

January Guest Designer - Caz (Bunny's Bits n Bobs)


Hi, my name is Carol, but please call me Caz ... nickname Bunny in most places.  I live in Nottingham, England and have done so for nearly 19 years now, after moving from London.  I've had a go at most things, learned bobbin lace making, cross stitch and now onto card making, which I find I enjoy and hope to get better at it as I go along...

Challenge #193 - Pearls & Lace
chosen by Avril

Morning all, I am here with my Top 3 for Pearls and Lace. I did think we would have gotten more entries for this challenge, maybe not the correct time of year!

#1 - Shuly


What an amazing project, love the warm tones and all the super detail on this one. Beautiful shape and image, so much love has gone into this project and it shows.

Congratulations

Would not have thought that Pearls and Lace would go with Steampunk. Linda, has used it and it works, I also love the Paper piecing on this card.



I love the simplicity of this card, the layers are brilliant and the image so cute, another kind of card that I would not have thought Pearls and Lace would apply.

Congratulations to all our winners.
