Thank you Bridesmaid

I am very pleased with this card I have made for my sister to give my bridesmaid daughter when she gets married tomorrow. The wedding theme is pink and brown and The beautiful digi stamp from A Day For Daisies was chosen because of the Roses – both my daughter and sister are June birthdays and they are the wedding flower.

A first go at paper piecing

Their land swarmed with frogs, even in the chambers of their kings.

Psalms 105:30

Today’s card was made using a free digi from A Day For Daisies.  I had a go at some very simple paper piecing.  The digistamp is fab and I think the frog is eyeing up his birhday tea!  The papers were free with a magazine.
