Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

It's that time of the month again...time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge.  This months challenge was to "create a project using one of your favorite learned skills." One that I have been wanting to try badly is Betsy Veldman's stamped doily's.

Let me just tell you how much I LOVE doily's. My grandmothers and great-grandmother did a lot of crocheting. Since both of my parents are only children (yep, no blood related Aunts or Uncles but I do have a few honorary one's), my parents inherited everything. Once I moved out of the house, I asked to take a few vintage doily's that one woman or another had made. I use them on my dining room table under the centerpiece, under marble lamps (that I also inherited from my grandparents...and my dad helped me rewire before moving out), and some are stored away with the dining room linens. I also love paper doily's...like the one's used in the cake making world. So you can imagine my complete LOVE of Betsy's stamped doily's!!

Here is the card I came up with using my brand-spanking-new, hand-stamped doily, ala Betsy Veldman!



































Love this technique and I love the sentiment from Heather Nichol's newest Fillable Frames set. I have a feeling I will be making quite a few of these stamped doily's in the near future. I can see them on some of my scrapbook pages as well!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great time checking out all the projects along the blog hop!!
