Robyn!

So as promised yesterday, I am back and ready to show this cute little girl called Robyn, who has never been coloured .... well she still technically hasn't as I tried out a new technique! yay go me!

So a little bit about this card, I hassled Kerry, so I could make some more cards, she said she would hate for me to craft so much that the housework never got done ... so I thought I would craft some more LOL the housework will still be there tomorrow, and tomorrow never comes!


I Paper pieced her!! First time I have ever done paper piecing, and I won't tell you how many times I chopped off the wrong bits of the dress LOL, lets put it this way, if I had a swear box when crafting this card would have filled it!! 

I love her paper pieced dress! and I am very proud of myself! 


I started off following a sketch, but when I stuck down the blue paper, I realised I have left a big chunk off and it looked daft, so I just carried on and finished off my card, I think it looks nice! 

Papers - My Minds Eye
Nesties - Lacy circles & Large circles
Flowers - I am roses
Charm - Ebay

I will be back tomorrow with another card, something which is special and annoying at the same time! 
Have a good day!
