HAPPY Birthday!

Good Morning Peeps,

It's the weekend, it's Saturday, it's time for a new challenge over on My Time to Craft and it's one of my favourites:

Paper Piecing

For my card I used one of my hAnglar stamps that hasn't been used in ages, I paper pieced her dress and pinafore, used copics for colouring, papers are by LOTV flowers from stash, La La Land die for the bunting, Cheery Lynn and Joanna Sheen dies for leaves,  sentiment and to finish I plaited some narrow green ribbon.

Do take a look at the challenge blog to see some great inspiration by the design team.

Sketchy Time

Good Morning Peeps,

It's the weekend so I hope you all have a good one whatever you have planned, ours will be decorating the dining/morning room, but if the sun is shining I hope to get out in the garden for an hour or so.

Well on to our challenge today over at My Time to Craft where this week we have a sketch for you:


I decided to go with a monochrome look using some free papers from "Making Cards" magazine, I used one of my Gorjuss Girls stamps that hasn't seen ink in many a long time, coloured her with Copics, the star stamp is from an old See D set which I then cut out and added some ribbon.

Hope to see you joining in our challenge this week.

Challenges Entered:

Unicorn Challenge - Spotty Dotty
Cards in Envy - Girls
