every little girls needs polka dots...


Good morning everyone did you all enjoy the blog hop yesterday...what did you think of the Bags of Fashion release...aren't they gorgeous?...I wonder which ones you chose or did you go for them all?...we had a nice day yesterday, lunch out and bit of shopping (the necessary kind not the fun kind though), a little visit with our beautiful Daughter then home...the plan was Chinese for dinner then a movie but Phil had a sudden surge of energy and decided to paint the hall????...go figure...oh well it gave me a chance to have some playtime in my craftroom anyway and the bonus was the hall walls got finished not all I need to do is decide what pictures to put up and where...rip up the carpet and do the banister and stair rail...phew that's a lot and that's just the hall...ever wish you hadn't started something lol...anyway after our Chinese Phil nodded off (energy reserve gone I guess lol) so no movie but its better with a painted hall than sitting watching a movie I think don't you?...right now onto my card for today, I couldn't resist using another of the cute little girls from the Crafter's Companion Angelique & friends stamps for my card today, this cutie is called Isobel...its ages since I have done anyway real paper piecing so I may have gone just a tad overboard with it on this one lol...I coloured the bits I didn't paper piece with my distress inks...the fantastic papers I used for the card and paper piecing are more from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Divine...lush soft pastel colours aren't they?...because the stamp and papers were so pretty all I used to finish was some of the beautiful Prima Say It In Crystals Mini Swirls - Divine aren't they stunning, they are a mix of swirls in pearls and crystals and a few scattered gems from the Mixed Bag Clear Flat Acrylic Round Gems - 3mm, 4mm & 5mm...everything I used for today's card is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from the Papertake Weekly challenge and I'm also entering it for the Allsorts Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge...we are off for breakfast in Town today and hitting a few shops while we are there...we are looking for a new throw or bedspread for our bed to ring the changes with colours for our bedroom that's next on our hit list (after the hall that is)...phew I'm exhausted just thinking about it lol...whatever your up to today I hope you have a lovely restful one
