Make It Monday #144 with Nicecrane Designs



Before we kick off another linky party at Make It Monday I want to take a moment to say farewell to Meihsia Liu who is stepping down as a DT member. She has been a constant source of inspiration to me throughout the past year. Best of luck Meihsia in all of your crafty endeavors! 

We're sponsored this week by the talented Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs. I am using a vintage image -Sugar and Spice 3 that you'll find in his online store. Here's a look at the preview sheet-Sugar and Spice DSL I where I found this beautiful image of two sisters to use on my thank you card.

Prize is a $20 gift voucher to the winner.
 
 
 
 
 
My Pick's of the Week are...
(that's right, two choices this week)
 
 
 I love her stamped background and colored image. Terrific pocket card Sonja!

and

#140 Linda B and Katie ;)

I love this project for so many reasons. First, it is beautiful (click her link to see the back side and more pictures) and the papers and embellishments are gorgeous. :) Second, this is what I call a "forever" project. Linda was visiting her nearly ten year old granddaughter, Katie, and shared her love of design and paper crafting with her. This project and the time spent with her grandma will be something Katie will remember and cherish forever, Linda too I'm sure. ;)

Thanks for sharing your talent ladies with all of us at Make It Monday!

 
I encourage you to drop by the DT's blogs for more inspiration featuring images from Nicecrane Designs. You can click their links on my right sidebar or by clicking HERE.
 
 Thanks for dropping by,

What a great card, Lisa - the images from Nicecrane are lovely. I've been without a printer so no chance to use any recently, but I should be back up and running by the weekend, and this is great inspiration to get back on track. Great picks too... Have a lovely week!
