Papersmooches Blossoming Buds…



I have been playing with Papersmooches Blossoming Buds and thought I would link up to the current challenge here

Here is my first card Papersmooches Blossoming Buds teamed with PTI Penned Elegance. Coloured with alcohol markers.


And my second card is teamed with Jane’s Doodles Mother’s Day.  Once again coloured with alcohol markers.


Both sentiment pieces are cut using SSS stitched circles & ME Sew Fancy dies.


Thanks for stopping by



A couple of finished projects…



Just popping in to share a couple of projects I have finished off this week. 

This is a free pattern Cozy Triangles here

I used 2 strands of yarn together cause I thought it would be a quick knit that way.

The yarn is an acrylic yarn left over from another project – and yes I still have some left!  I seriously overestimated the amount I needed for the first project.

Miss A is very happy with it. Thankfully!

My next project was started and finished in the same week.  Amazing!

I purchased Shelly Down’s Gingermelons Embroidered animals book a few months ago.  I had wanted to try making a doll which was easy for a toddler or small child to carry around. This doll does fit the criteria.  Next time I will alter the method a little as I felt there was far to much hand sewing of ears and limbs to the body – I’m sure the method can be tweaked to sew into the seams.

Here is my finished doll.  She isn’t perfect.  My embroidery is a little rusty and as mentioned above I will change how I sew her together next time.


Hope you are all going well.

Until next time
