Happy Easter

Wow what a busy last two days which is why I've not managed to post anything.......think we were all icing in our sleep hope you have all recieved your lovely easter eggs and you're not feeling too ill having eaten them all, my cards are like buses nothing for a while and then two arrive

Thanks for taking a look
and leaving a comment.

Penny Black 

Second card for today features a new stamp that I brought from the NEC last week....just fell in love with this cute little fella and his dog. I've done the image in paper piecing this is only the second time I've done this but its quite effective, just added some painted areas i.e.his hands and face and highlighted using sakura pens.
Challenges are:
Penny Black......use check papers, background as well as trousers and cap.
One stop craft .......paper piecing
Sketch Saturday.......sketch.
Our Creative corner.......Use buttons.



Thanks for taking  a peek
Happy Easter
Hugs from Daniele
