For Jacqui

Hi, guys, and welcome to my new followers! Nice to see you!

My lovely friend Jacqui gives me a lift to and from the Toddler Group 3 times a week, so I wanted to make her a card. She has an adorable little dog, who is a lot hairier than the one in this 'Penny Black' image, but it's the thought that counts!

Papers are Basic Grey 'Pyrus' apart from the doily, which was cut from a snippet with a Marianne die. I also used a Memory Box die for the green flourish. Flowers and lace are from stash.

I paper-pieced the dress and handbag and used Speccies for the rest. The image mat is distressed with Tea Dye and there's a line of stickles round the edge, too.

I'm entering this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week has this great sketch!

I hope you're all having a good week - it's one day nearer to the weekend! Huzza!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
