Chloe In The Rain (plus challenges!)..

Hi all! Hope you're having a good weekend?
My girls slept at their Nana's last night. Although the boys are still here it's amazing how much quieter it is when you take two out of the equation.
As it is quite calm here today, I've had some time to play!
I thought I would try paper piecing this adorable Chloe In The Rain stamp from Pink Gem Designs.

The pretty floral paper is some I had a while back in one of those 'pick n fill' paper boxes. I thought the tiny pattern would be ideal for this.
I also used Promarkers; Denim Blue, Henna & Tan,
& various Copic skin tones.
Other ingredients;
Kraft Card (Elzybells)
Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch,
Big Scalloped Circle Nestabilities (Pink Gem Designs),
Lace & twine (Quixotic Paperie)
Buttons & Flowers (from stash)
I will pop this card into the following challenges;
Totally Gorjuss 'Round & Round' (for the nesties & buttons.)
Colour Create KHAKI, AQUA, BROWN and CREAM plus Circles (the buttons)
Cute Card Thursday#112 'Someone Special'
Well, I am off to cook lunch now. No roast dinner for us today. I have got some rump steaks I am going to fry, with potato croquettes, mushrooms & grilled tomatoes.

Bye for now!
