Patchwork Patti

Good Afternoon,
Well I've been out for a fish & chip lunch with my Mum & Sister today. I've decided to make the most of being off work now I'm feeling a bit better, plus it gives me a bit of a routine. Staying at home all the while means there's nothing to get ready for so it's lunchtime before I'm up and dressed.
 Today I have a card to share with you that I made yesterday for the DT call over @ Songbird Challenges. The papers are a bit more daring than my usual stay safe polka dots, checks or embossed papers and to be quite honest I'm not sure about it!
 The papers are a digi print & were a free download from The Shabby Princess. They are beautiful designs but so different to what I usually use.
The image is Patchwork Patti from Sheri Baldy which I have coloured with markers and chalks, isn't she just so cute
The flowers are a mixture of brought (all the cream ones) & handmade (the blue ones are torn & rolled) and I must say, ones I make regularly as they are easy to do and I think they are effective.
I've embellished with some papermania heart shaped pearly gems, a MB corner die which I also used to add detail to the flowers with some of the curly bits & some seam binding.
 Just 2 more sleeps before MAWTT's challenge returns after their summer hols!!!


  1. So beautiful Carole - love the DP's and the flowers are gorgeous.
