Sweet Doilies

Hello Friends!  Today I have some sweet doily cards to share with you. :)  I haven't made a card in awhile and I needed some new ones so I sat down at my desk and pondered a bit.  These are the ones that I came up with.  Inspired by doilies, I cut two in half and then started picking through my scrap pile to find patterned papers that grabbed my attention.  After a bit of fiddling with their arrangements I grabbed some lacy ribbon, some sentiments and some embellishments. I decided to pick some fairly simple sentiments for three of them since I wanted them to be more all occasion ones.   I have to say it took me a bit of time to get them just right, and I made a crochet doily flower to go on the one right below since I didn't have anything that I liked to go with it.

It was fun to create again, and now I have some new sweet cards to share with someone.  I think that is why I like creating things so much, just to share.  May you have a sweet day and do scroll down and see all the cards, I made a set of four this time.

Hi there, Jennifer!
Well, I didn't see anything mentioned, but now I'm wondering if you made the crocheted doilies yourself. If so, I'm smitten. They are SO adorable. I just figured you made them because you are SO super creative. Your cards are lovely, and I thank you for sharing them with us. I hope all is well with you and your family.
You remain in my prayers, and I'm blessed to stop by and have the opportunity to pray for you all tonight.

Jennifer, all the card are unique and wonderful but I must concur with Karen, that pink crocheted embellishment is a winner. Your pondering really worked well. We appreciate your wonderful art, so creative and beautiful. Thank you for sharing with us in the #236-#237 - Word Art Wednesday AG Challenge.

I love using doilies on my cards and especially like how you paired the doily with little crocheted flowers on the first card! Beautiful!
