FFF, MTSC61, More Paper Piecing & CIC46

I've done it!! Two cards made from scratch and posted to my blog in the same day!! Woot......and I got the house cleaned & ran a few errands this morning too. I'm spent now though and will be climbing into bed in another moment or two.

What a line up of challenges this next card represents. I got my colour inspiration from TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Feb Colour Challenge and used Mercy's sketch to plan my layout. The colours also work for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and I couldn't help but paper piece Stella's dress. I've been following Dawn McVey's technique for tying bows and then I had to dress it up a little (for the first time ever) with a button and some twine. The twine I recycled from an invitation to a party I recently received and the button is the "spare" that came with the shorts I'm actually wearing today!! This one's going in my stash...not sure what or who for atm, but I'm sure it will be used in the not-too-distant future. So glad I buy too much paper and had lots of options for guava from SU in my stash with matching ribbon on the side. :)

Thanks for having another peek.
Hugs, Michey xxxx

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper/Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White, SU Choc Chip & Kraft + DSP Afternoon Tea (retired)
Other: SU Groovy Guava Grosgrain, COPICS!!, SU Top Note Die, Cuttlebug (cut before I broke my littel green machine), Fiskars Oval Shape Template, Button & Twine from stash.

Btw, remember how I was telling you I broke my beloved Cuttlebug!! *sob* *sob*
Well its being replaced!! Yay!! And replaced with a PINK Cuttlebug!! I'm so blessed and excited. I hope to pick up my new pink baby on Monday!! My local scrapping store is the BEST, I tell ya. I had to drop the A,B,C, plates in to them today so I can get a whole new box of goodies in return and they were dumbfounded when they saw my "A" plate. Its green...okay.....but also is really rigid and firm and whilst the bottom and sides are solid plastic, the top is hollowed out in a honeycomb pattern (the up side). They showed me their "A" plate and its white and solid and has some flexibility to it. Just wondering if anyone else has had the same "A" plate as me??? They are now thinking its rigid nature may have contributed to the "breaking" of my green baby.
Anywho....that's it from me for now. See ya later. M xxx
