Morning folks!

Well I have decided that my two fave techniques at the minute are paper piecing and faux stitching so I've combined them both for this card. I know we say it everytime a new kit is released but I really do think this is the best one Magnolia have produced, I lurve it! So many possibilities and I reckon you could make nice Christmas cards too........ imagine a recipe for gingerbread cookies, YUM!




























I've used papers from the Basic Grey Marakesh range, doesn't blue work well with orange?! The heart brads and lace are from my stash and the pumpkin is a Sizzlit die. I coloured Tilda with Polys and added some gloss to her spoon and shoes. I haven't decided which challenge to enter this card into yet - there might not even be one but I'll have a nosy around later.

I'm at work now so I'm off to grab some lunch and then it's up to the staff room to do some archiving....... oh joy!!!

Catch you all later then, TTFN and TFL!

Hugs Tara xxx
