Did a bit of cooking!

Hi all,

It's 8.30 am here. Daisy has gone off to kindy with hubby early this morning and I will take Martha once she has had her first nap (I am always amazed how she has a nap so early when she has just slept 11 hours through the night!) So, I thought I would post this card. I felt like doing something a bit different, so I followed a recipe from Cooking it up with Katie - blue, bling and buttons. I used a fab stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie that I have had for ages but have never inked up. I'm not sure why as I love the image. I paper pieced the dress. This is something I don't do enough of. The sentiment is from Sentiments for you. I have loved the ticket sentiments for ages but have never got around to getting some, so now I have. The papers are from RAKs so I don't know who made them. I made the flower from tissue paper and a scalloped punch.

I'll be back later tonight with my Incy Wincy card. Have a lovely day (or evening, depending on where you are).

This is great, Ishould paper piece more too, it looks fantastic!

Love the kimmies, only own 1, but the new lot out are fabulous, definitely a 'want' or perhaps a 'need'? hehee!

Great Fun!
