If you like a lot of choklit on your biscuit...


...join our club!

Random, I know, but that's what I felt like singing. :)

Happy Sundae Peeps. The new Challenge over at Paper Sundaes is Paper Piecing.


To start with, I was only going to piece the umbrella. Then I did the boots. Then I did them again and decided I still didn't like them. Then I coloured them and did them as they are now. Then I did the coat, which made me realise I needed to do the hands and umbrella handle. Then I thought the collar and pockets didn't look right, so I did them again too. So, there's not really much on this image that didn't get pieced to within an inch of it's life. That's what I call value for money!

You'll notice this card contains a number of my current favourite things. I say current, because I'm quite a fickle Fluff, the wind just has to change direction and I have a new favourite! So today, I'm loving; Pure Innocence Images (Heather Ellis is the sponsor this week at Paper Sundaes.) dots, red, white and blue, velvet ric rac, embossing behind an image and twine. If I could have got some stars on there too I would have!

Anyway, that's all from me today Folks. Have a lovely Sunday afternoon. Mwah, mwah.

I'm entering this card at:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch

I love it - you paper piecing junkie you. It sounds a bit like when we got a new couch and then I needed a new rug, new pillows and new paint on the walls - it just kept going and going. Love the floral/spot combination - off to search my paper stash. Ta for the inspiration. hugs jenny b x

Hi Faye, Fab card! Love this sweet image and gorgeous colour combo.

I have just sat down with a coffee and an orange club bar so the title of your post did amuse me lol!

Sorry I haven't 'visited' you the last few days. Have been busy with work and a poorly Chloe came home on Friday night from her school trip so she has needed some TLC.
