So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Spring! Happy Easter!

This is for Speedy Fox and Friend's Challenge -- use lace..week 96. For this one I decided to make another criss cross card....nice and easy...and add some lace! ( Hope to see your entry! Click here to see the spot where to enter!)

I used GKD yellow cs with Reminisce and Carolees dp. The images were from MFP a Heinrich Company Blessings 2012. I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento and then colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. Used various Spellbinders to diecut -- Labels 1, 4 and Ribbon Banners. After the criss cross was made in the front I used a yellow ribbon and then attached the lace behind the diagonals and also put a piece of lace as the pull tap on the insert. Added some flowers, brads, button and a bow....and this is ready to wish someone a Happy Spring! Happy Easter!
