PaperArtsy & Virginia’s View Challenge!
Don’t be too shocked! I know I’m posting again- but it’s for a good cause- or rather a lovely person.
If you’re after genuine and lovely and scouting around the papercraft online community, you wouldn’t have to look too hard to find Virginia Lu.
Serendipitously we ‘found’ each other during the mammoth blog hop for our lovely crafty trend-leader Cath Edvalson. She and Taheerah helped me organise it and since then we’ve become good buddies and chat regularly. She recently started a crafty challenge blog called Virginia’s View here and she was blown away by the runaway success of it; over 300 entrants to the inaugural challenge. She kindly contacted me and asked if I’d be a guest designer for her stitching challenge.
Of course. I’d be honoured. So this is my piece for the blog today. I do love stitching- makes me happy, in fact!
It’s from PaperArtsy- here can you see how much you can do with it?
I’m spreading my wings a little- finding new techniques to learn & new types of image to inspire me. Hope you love the set as much as I do!
Do think about entering- there’s a Simon Says Stamp voucher up for grabs and there’s 12 days left to link up. It’s a great way of getting to know new people in this wonderful community- it’s not hard, you can even so faux stitching too!
I’m also linking this project to Catered Crop Button challenge (thanks Ros) . You should go link up too- it’s adding buttons to your projects ( or talking about how you store them!)
Oh, and because I can, I’m popping it into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog on the theme of anything goes!
Better go- not much of the chat. I thought I’d slyly help myself to some coffee cake whilst cooking tea. Sadly it fell into my coffee.
What’s a girl to do?
Common sense would have meant I just tipped out the coffee and congratulated myself on calories saved.
However, it seemed a shame to waste. I started to drink it.
An artistic layer of ‘fat bubbles’ started to form on the top.
Looked beautiful- tasted umm…foul.
Fortunately there’s enough left.
For the moment at least.
In our house, you need to tie stuff down and lock it away.
Truly, we need a food safe.
Dashing off now to feed the gannets tea..minus the coffee cake ( or as Darcy on Twitter put it ‘cakey coffee’)
