Cottage Wall Papers

When I first started this blog I didn't have a clue what to do and I will confess my first post took me over an hour to do !! Give me paper and scissors any time !

However I have slowly got to grips with the basics and my 8yr old has showed me how to do a hyperlink ! I still have a lot to learn - I don't know how to schedule posts yet so at least you know I am 'live' lol !

But it has all been worthwhile and I realised that last night when Becki left me a lovely comment.

She said she had admired my blog and been inspired - lil old me actually inspiring someone else, I find it difficult to believe ! I was genuinely touched so thank you Becki - you made my day !!!!

Todays cards involve 'paper piecing' with the lovely Cottage Wall papers. I had forgotten how much I enjoy this technique.

Bow tied with linen thread to add another texture. Next I used the papers again to make a more masculine card and create different wrapping paper for the parcels.

Coloured the spots in with the ink pads. Sorry for the quality of pics but by the time I took them it was almost dark.

His n Hers - which do you prefer ?

Back next time and promise to try a different colour combo - I think my fingers are becoming permanently stained with Rich Razzleberry lol !
