Its all about the eyes - Sweet Pea Stampers Lace and Pearls + Sketch and Stash Challenge 42 + Simon Says Challenge-Paper Piecing

Good morning everyone did you all have a fab day yesterday, I went craft shopping for more candy for while I'm away and to celebrate as I have just passed 190,000 hits so not far to the big 200,000 how amazing is that, if someone had told me 18 months ago I would have anywhere near this many hits I would have thought they were nuts lol...thank you all so much for following and visiting me so often, I love to read your comments and so many of you have a wicked sense of humour, love it lol...my card today is using this amazing stamp from Crafts and Me its called Seeing Through, just look at those amazing eyes, stunning aren't they...I used the fab sketch from Sketch and Stash, my new Stash is my stamp and my neglected stash is these fab papers from the Basicgrey Sugar Rush range called Gummy Bears...I paper pieced her wings and glove so I'm entering it for the Simon says challenge paper piecing one and the Sweet Pea Stampers Lace and Pearls challenge too...the lace I added is a very old lace someone gave me years ago even before I started card making, the fab ribbon is from the shoulders of a cardigan and I finished with a cut out heart from the paper and some yellow pearls...I hope you like...wouldn't you just love to have eyes like her...have a fab day everyone and before you ask I still haven't done my ironing lol
