Good Morning everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at 
The BOSS  Hazel is hosting this week 
Clean & Simple
is her chosen theme

I grabbed this fab digi for free from Meljens Designs FB page the other weekend. It's called  'Number One Dad Stitched' which can be found here and has 50% off at the moment. I printed it off on a white piece of 5.5" card which was mounted onto a black mat. I then printed it off on a piece of blue & brown nitwits paper, cut out the letters and used them to paper piece the image.
I was pleased with the outcome so made a second one using the remaining letters.

Not sure which one I prefer! & I'm not sure why the card looks blue, it is definitely white

Hope one over to the main challenge blog for some fabulous ideas from the girls of team A.
