A card and some news...

What a busy old day today has been! 

Was on duty at communion this morning, then Scott had a rugby match and then after the rugby match he had a football party to go to! Scott was also at his friend's house last night for a sleepover and although I am assured they were quite well behaved I'm hoping he'll be so tired he'll fall asleep really quickly. I know I want to!!

So have you noticed anything different about my blog today. Glance over to the left, over there.... I've been asked to be on the DT at Creative Craft Challenges. I'm very excited and can't wait to get started.

The other night at Cass's I tried a spot of paper piecing, this is the first time I've ever tried it so I picked a simple stamp to start with but now I've tried it once I might just try it again very soon.... Watch this space.

Challenges I  would like to enter:

CES -Flower Frenzy
Dream Valley Challenges - Mother's Day (I know I don't have a Mum but the card is for my Aunt...)
Fairy Tale - Paper Piecing
Paper Play - Something Old, Something New (new technique - paper piecing, old stamp and papers etc)
Paper Shelter - Fancy Folds

No new products were harmed in the making of this card! Use It Up 2012.

Image - Just a Girl, coloured with Promarkers, Funky Kits
Cardstock/Paper - from stash
Embellishments - flowers, ribbon (dyed with Antique Linen DI), pearls, all from stash

I have a few ideas I want to try out tonight so I shall be off now to try them while I still have the energy.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hugs. Susan xxx
