Maisie Two Balloons - LOTV Celebrate!

Evening all (is there anyone out there not watching Wimbledon?) hope you are ok.  Just popped up to the pc during the second set as it was all getting too much for one little squirrel.

Well ....... it's been one of those weeks, and I'm feeling ..... feeling.....what's the word I'm looking for.....grumpy......contrary....stroppy...difficult.....mardy.....oh yes, that's it, ar*ie!  Yes folks, I'm turning into what my darling, delicate, daddy refers to as a right ar*ie mare.  I need a holiday!

Anyhoo, on a lighter note - LILI OF THE VALLEY are looking for Celebrate cards this week and (as some of you may have noticed from my whoopsie posting last night), what better image for a celebration than little Maisie Two Balloons

I've used papers from the Dovecraft Tea Shop collection and paper pieced Maisie's balloons and dress from the same papers I used for the backing and the flowers.  Hopefully it means it all coordinates!  What's left of Maisie I have painted in Distress Inks and the little "celebrate" sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.  Glittery borders from stash.

It's a simple card, but hey, what else can you expect from a simple squirrel!

Hugs, Sxx

Hi Squirrel. A very pretty card.
I haven't watched one moment of Wimbledon - I'd rather do my parchment.
When I feel the way you do I say - I could sting a wasp. Hope you feel better soon.

Love this Squirrel, so cute, the paper piecing is great, love it.
I cant get the tennis this year,but able to watch the highlights, so that is something.Feeling a bit naff myself lately....everyone around me is getting sick, by the time they are well.. I'll probably come crashing down with something.
