Gorjuss Paper Piecing.

It's Saturday again and time for another Totally Gorjuss challenge. This week we would like you to do some paper piecing. We are being sponsored this week by the lovely Tracey at Dies to Die For. A big thank you to Tracey. I'd recommend popping over there to have a look. You'll find some lovely goodies there!

I coloured the lovely Bumble Bee with Promarkers which I also used to edge the circle, the flowers and colour the card candy. I paper pieced her dress with the same lovely Nana's Nursery DP from DCWV as the background. I also paper pieced her wings and coloured them with a Sakura clear glitter gel pen. I added some matching flat back pearls to the image and the sentiment and an iriciscent heart to her hair. I love this thick, glittery DP it is all gorgeous, lovely patterns and colours.

I used the lovely sketch from Papertake Weekly. This is a great sketch, nice and simple but you can add embellishments to make it as simple or as fancy as you like.

I'm hoping Mr Blogger behaves nicely and posts this for me tomorrow morning. I am off to visit my daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren in Crieff tomorrow. If I'm good I might manage to pay a visit to a very nice craft shop in Perth lol! Not sure if I should though. I nipped over to Bunny Zoe's to look at ....ok buy the lovely stamp I saw on Angela's card (and lots of other people's too)......Beary Big Hugs from Belles and Whistles. Of course I couldn't leave it at that could I? Oh no I had to buy other things too. No nobody made me....I'm my own worst enemy.

On the plus side I saved some money because I was supposed to be going to a candle party tonight but the weather has turned nasty here again so I thought it was safer to stay at home. I'm a bit disappointed because I was looking forward to it, I don't get out much! Not a huge amount of snow but very slippy. The main road near here was at a standstill this morning. My daughter went to work early this morning but turned after about 2 miles as it was so dangerous. I think she was right this time because people were taking hours to get to Aberdeen instead of about half an hour. She went in later and worked different hours instead. Luckily she can stay there as she is early tomorrow. If she can't get home tomorrow afternoon and my son can't come out to dogsit overnight we might have to take the dogs with us!!!

I'm going to schedule this now and hope for the best. Enjoy your weekend whatever you're doing.
