Hi, Pinky. I'm back ... just for a couple of days, 'cause I'm going to to the mountains for a short holiday... my last for this summer, school- for teachers - start 1st September in Italy. You worked a lot and I missed so many cards. I had a quick look and I saw fab creations! The one with Donegal is unique! Today's card is lovely, so bright colours and perfectly stitched! Hugs. Miria

Oh wow Pinky, that is superb!! A lot of work has gone into your card but it's so worth it. I love how you have paper pieced the clothing to match the background, I love the colours, the composition, well everything. Your sewing is great, I must try and do that more (only done it once and that was wonky!). Fab work!

Hello
I am so sorry, but I didn`t have the change to go online yesterday and see if there was any more entries for this challenge. We had visitors,and it got late..
I have to say that this is so stunning. I love how you used the same paper to dress her.And you have some really great ideas.
I also love your card from last week, frame it. That frame is awesome. I totally love all the colors and Mickey was just the perfect guy to match.
Over at DW we really appreciate your interest in these challenges. Hope to see more great cards from your hands.
