'Love' from Me to You

Hello and Welcome.
It was a wet and dreary day here yesterday so I managed to
finish a card I had started for the latest challenge over at
CAS Mix Up to use Gelatos.
If you saw my first card you will see it was
a little different - well this one is
sooo very different again and something I had
never thought of  before. 
You see I wanted to add texture (again)
and thought I would try rubbing my gelatos
onto a gorgeous wide piece of lace - yes lace.
I liked what I saw and then thought I would add
a wee bit of shimmer. I glued the lace onto white card stock
with Gloss Gel Medium and 
added  Elizabeth Craft Cool Diamond Glitter.
I backed it with white card stock.
in gold metallic paper and topped it with
CUTplorations Love Word Die in a light Teal colour.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations.
My Mix is - Gelatos, Gel Medium, Glitter, Lace,
Die Cutting and Stamping.

I am heading north at the end of the month 
to spend some time with our daughter and
going to see the Professional Bull Riding - 
I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea
but we are country folk and have been
involved with horses/cattle for a lot of years
so we are looking forward to it as well
a bit of drag racing!
Also catching up with 2 of our grandchildren.

So the next few weeks will be busy getting
DT posts scheduled and not a lot of time for
other challenges. I hope to make just a
CAS card the normal way with gelatos
before I head off. We'll see.

Thanks for dropping in today
Till next time - Cherrio from

Way to experiment, Ina. The lace gives so much texture and who knew it could be colored with gelatos. The results are outstanding. Have a great time with your daughter and grandchildren.
