Saturated Canary challenge #53!!

Yeah! Time for a new Challenge over at Saturated Canary and this time it is my turn to chose a theme.....drum roll......

"Paper Piecing!"

Now the details....

I have used the fabulous "Princess Peanelope"  I have never really done that much paper piecing before so wanted to give it a try and I have to say this one was a bit of a challenge but I am sooooo pleased with how she has turned took me forever to print out each wee piece of the different mattresses....I used up a load of my scraps to make this card!
I have added a tiny wee pea.......I gave this card to my Goddaughter....when she was little I was staying over at theirs one night as her Mum and I were having a wee wine and nibbles night....she put a pea under my pillow to see if I was a princess....cuteness!!
I hope you like and that I have inspired you to have a go and enter the challenge!

Saturated Canary Challenge #52

Time for another Saturated Canary Challenge!! This fortnight the lovely Vicky has chosen Shabby Chic!

Now the details....

I haven't really done much Shabby Chic before so after a quick few hours on Pinterest I had an idea of the style
 I have used the beautifully cute Butterfly Baby  lots of layers, distressing and inking of edges and I am pretty pleased with the result!  I am even happy with my flower arranging too! 

On a sadder note....I don't know if any of my lovely followers remember the guinea pigs we got from the rescue centre a couple of years ago....well Jude's one, Coco, died on Monday when I got home from work, she had been poorly for a wee while and I think her wee body just gave was very sad.... and I had one of the worst moments for a parent...telling Jude when she got home from school...her heart was broken 

This was the letter she wrote when she was at school the next day....I had tears streaming down my face when she showed it to me!

 Another Halloween card...this time "Arrow Zombie" the papers are from my new pad BoBunny Love Letters....again she is coloured with my Copics....greys and a bit of green for that zombie look!
I have spent most of today colouring....Lucy has been away at Cadet Weekend and Jude has been playing the Wii......will hopefully get them all on cards in the next few days!

Got my Spook on......

 Have you seen the gorgeous Halloween Digis over at Saturated Canary yet? Krista has come up with some yummy new stamps....they are FAB!
This is the cute "Vampire Pumpkin" ain't he sweet?
I have used my Copics to colour him and I have tried to keep him pale so only really used a small amount of grey on his skin....didn't want him to look to scary so gave him some little pink cheeks with some chalk...

On another note I just had to share my new funky wallpaper.....I am sooooo chuffed with how it all looks...although we still have to paint the rest of the room......we were supposed to do that in the summer hols but the weather was just tooooo good to spend inside ;0)

Off to finish off my second spooky card...see you tomorrow!
