every girl needs a spotted dress...

Good morning everyone did I hear you all cheer yesterday I'm sure I heard a roar of a crowd when the sun appeared here or maybe that was just me in my head...oooohhhhhh glorious sunshine you cant beat it for lifting the spirit can you...what are you all up to today anything exciting?, well Phil is away at the motorbike racing marshaling so I'm alone today but hey ho its gives me more time to catch up on some samples I'm doing...sssshhhh cant tell because then I would have to kill ya lol, well I give a sneak peek tomorrow so keep an eye out....by the way I can tell you what I bought Phil for his birthday, I bought him a divers watch a few years ago and he hasn't taken it off since and its looking really tatty and not very professional for work so hes been moaning he needs something a bit more stylish so I bought him a retro looking stylish watch, very Phil actually he is going to love it...right now onto my card for today which is using this amazingly gorgeous Trudys Party Dress image from Mo's Digital Pencil, Trudy is in her pants and vest which is so cute and the dress is separate like those dolls you used to be able to cut out of kids comics, I loved them didn't you, or is it just me old enough to remember them?...I coloured Trudy with distress inks and paper pieced and raised up her dress, I so want a dress like this, I have a brown spotted dress but I have never ever worn it...the lush papers are Echo Park again, this one is from the A Walk in the Park collection and is called Tree tops, I love the way Echo Park papers always have another fabulous pattern on the reverse...I finished with a pink ribbon to edge part of the paper and used the same ribbon for the bow...now don't all drool over this amazing Prima flower, just look at that sugar frosting...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering this for the Charisma Cardz sunshine colours challenge and the Craft Us Crazy anything goes challenge too...right I'm off to see if my brown spotted dress still fits me, have a wonderful bright sunny day everyone

Oooh lovely Mina! And yes I remember those little dolls that we dressed.... and I also remember having a green with white spots mini dress!! I LOVED that dress! I'd made it, then one day when it was being washed, I put it down in a patch of need soap powder which took the green die out of a panel..... I was so upset, but with my Mum's help, managed to remove the panel and replace it with some fabric I'd had leftover. Yay!! (Sorry getting carried away here...)

Me and my lovely man are going out for a nice pub lunch today.. looking forward to it!
Hugs

Mina, this is so darling! Love the colors and the paper piecing. I can't wait to start playing paper dolls with Trudy (yes, I do remember paper dolls!) but will have to wait a bit. This is the week of my son's wedding so not much time for play. Making sure to visit favorite crafters and get in a post or two. Sending hugs! Happy Birthday to Phil, too!
