I’m having a little toot today! It’s not often I design for Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine (only do so on behalf of Lili of the Valley) so was thrilled to bits to make the cover this month with this card using Summer My Best Friend
My brief was to use the Summer girls from Lili of the Valley and combine them with patchwork and paper piecing. Thank goodness for Nitwit Collections papers, they all work so well together and are perfect for a bit of patchwork . I just chopped up bits of paper and stitched them in place, so quick and easy to do.
The sweet little picket fence is one of the new Marianne Design dies that are to be released next month. I inked the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and added tiny little 10mm roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The other flowers used are sweetheart blossoms, 25mm hybrid tea rose and 30mm wild rose. The gorgeous brad is also from WOC, and the crochet lace is from Dies to Die For.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I am hoping to get my second magazine commission done today (got one done yesterday – 6 projects in one day plus shoe shopping for the grandchildren and daughter – wooo go Bev! lol)
