Not a good start to the day..............


Happy Friday again, the weeks are flying by.........I was naffed right orf when I jumped in the car for an early start this moning only to have a flat battery (yes.... I know the joke about the shape lol) !!!This week we have a super challenge chosen by our lovely Nina....... she would like to see your paper piecing, I think this is so effective although I don't do a lot of it.
We are sponsored by the fab Digi Darla who kindly gave us an image to use......... they are giving the winner 5 images of your choice!


Here is my card, it will be on it's way to my neighbour for her birthday next week  lol.............



I have used DCWV floral prints papers matted on to purple card. The image is by Digi Darla and coloured with promarkers, I have paper pieced her dress and hat.Memory box butterfly, WOJ flower, doily, lace, sentiment and pearls from stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Papertake Weekly ---------------- Sketch

Crafty Ribbons -------- Anything goes with ribbon

4Crafty girls---------------anything goes

I love promarkers ------------anything goes

Crafty sentiments ----------------anything goes

Well, the garage has been and started the car, put in a new brake light bulb, I have been to Asda for potatoes, made pumpkin soup, written a very long email and now I am going to eat last nights cottage pie leftovers for lunch!!!
Thank you for your visit
Hugs Tilly x

Gorgeous!!
It's a beautiful card Tilly and your neighbour will be over the moon to receive it.
I love purple and green as a colour combo, and the paper piecing is fab!

Sorry to hear you're having car problems again...maybe you should get a bike instead, but then you really would need some sparkly furry gloves and boots! But knowing you, I bet you could whip them up on your sewing machine.

Big hugs
