groovy baby...

Good morning everyone...wwwooohhhooo Friday again and almost the weekend although our weekend will be busy, are you up to anything nice this weekend?...this card really made me smile as it reminded me of my lovely Phil's old passport, it wasn't an old one but if you have seen piccys of Phil he is a little follicley challenged but the photo in the old passport was of him with long red hair and it always made me go 'groovy baby' and always made me chuckle...this card is for our new challenge over at Just Magnolia & hAnglar and sTanglar challenge, this week its our lovely teamie Michelle's choice and she chose one of my very favourite things, paper piecing, in case you hadn't noticed I love doing this, I really think I'm addicted to cutting out you know, even when I was small I would cut out all the paper dressing dolls from comics etc and if I didn't like their clothes I would trace them and draw and colour my own, crafter's start young don't they lol... this gorgeous little Edwin is called Cool Edwin and I used these fantastically coloured new BoBunny 6x6 VickiB paper pad papers, I'm so loving the fab bright colours in this pad, the pad and Edwin are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I used some Thicker's for the groovy and added a mix of buttons to finish...the fabulous sketch is from Mojo Monday, I'm also entering it for the Crazy 4 challenges, Papertake weekly challenge and Pear Tree Designs challenge too...if you have time pop on over to our Just Magnolia challenge and have at all that lush paper piecing...have a brilliant day everyone
