Summery Delia

Delia is sooo cute, isn't she? And she's wonderful to colour too. This time, I have coloured her with pro markers, paper pieced her dress, shoes and star and used some Stardust Stickles. I love paper piecing - its so easy and the effect is always fab, especially with the addition of a little shading.

The paper is First Edition Spring Drop and some card form The Works. I have used part of a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish. (This has to go down as one of my best craft purchases as it is used on so many of my cards!).

My sewing of the pink ribbon isn't very straight, but maybe that adds to the hand-made-ness of the card, huh?!

I made this card for the first of a few parties that Euan has been invited to, for one of his "best friends", Mya. He had a brilliant time at the party today.

Now originally, I had intended to follow the Sugar Bowl sketch and enter that challenge, as well as the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge of Senti-metal. But, no matter how hard I tried, and no matter what combinations of paper I used, I struggled to get it to look nice, so I gave up for now and did my own (simple) thing! but I will try the sketch again with another image.....maybe it will work with my lovely hedgehog Aviator image I have coloured up.....

But, I WOULD like to enter the following challenges:

Fab 'n' Funky - Cute And Girly

My Mum's Craft Shop - Favourite Stamp
