Evening, all! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's been quite manic here but Ye Olde Manne and I have finally arranged a weekend away in Shropshire to visit our granddaughter. I can't wait!
Unfortunately a good friend hasn't been well, so I've made her a 'cheer you up' card. I was originally going to enter last week's challenge at Whiff of Joy which was for paper piecing, but I was unexpectedly out today and missed the boat.
I used Willow with Sunhat and she's on clearance sale at the mo, so if you like her, get in quick!
I like paper piecing, it can be fiddly, but I find it relaxing when in front of the tv. I used MME papers that were free last year - or maybe the year before? I cut out her dress and hat and then glued the scarf and apron over the top, that's a bit easier than cutting out bits that have to be put together like a jigsaw!
The rest is coloured with Promarkers and the flowers are 'stickled pink'. (lol!)
The ribbon and buckle are from stash. The leaves were cut with a Woodware punch. The flowers are Wild Orchid, I edged the petals with n Antique Pink Promarker and then added some Glamour Dust. The gems in the corners are from stash.
I used a great sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge. I like their sketches very much, they're always fun to follow!
I hope everyone is well and enjoying good weather. It's wonderful to see the sun, everyone was smiling today!
Thanks for looking!
love Mags B x
PS Apologies for the picture, one side is more shadowed than the other!
