City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 247 ~ Roses and Lace

Today's challenge theme was chosen by Charlene, unfortunately, she has to take a break from blogging to take care of some health issue, so I am writing this post for her.

We all love LACE and ROSES don't we, so this challenge should not be that difficult, to have LACE and ROSE(s) on your project!

Week 247 ~ Roses and Lace

Guest Designer

Please meet......

Hi, my name is Kara (known in blogland as Kara Lynne) and my blog is karalynnecards.blogspot.com.  After about ten years of scrapbooking our daughters’ lives, I started making cards as a challenge to use up all of those scraps.  I got hooked when I looked on the internet to get ideas and found an amazing community of paper crafters!  I love dimension, trying new techniques, coloring with Copics, and cutting – especially with my Silhouette.  Most of all I love connecting with fellow card-makers and I am truly thankful to those at the City Crafter Challenge Blog for giving me the opportunity to be a guest designer.

What a beautiful card, thanks Kara!
Please hop over to Kara's blog for more of her lovely creation!

Please do not cross-promote event unrelated to City Crafter Challenge Blog.

We noted there a few entries that were not following the rules stated above the past few weeks, to save the precious time of our DT and be fair to other crafters who followed rules, we will now delete entries that trying to promote their products here at this challenge blog. The CCCB team work hard for the past few years to provide a playground for crafters all over the world, we brainstorm for a weekly theme, create to inspire other likewise crafters and spending time going around to leave encouraging comments, we do not want CCCB to become an advertising space for businesses to sell their products or gain exposure for your own challenge blog, if you are trying to promote your products, we strongly encourage you to be one of our sponsors, that way, you will gain exposure the right manner. Thank YOU!

  3. Thank you for the fun challenge! I realize now that the die I used on my card (#17) are technically "wildflowers" but I imagined them as roses. They remind me of the roses in our neighborhood garden. Your DT projects are stunning! Thanks for the fun challenge. Best, CG
