Home Alone

First day back blogging in a while and oh so sad the family have all gone home back to the UK and their summer holidays here in Ireland are over until next year. The time flew by too fast as usual and now the house is just oh so quiet without them, dear Penny is wandering around looking for all her little puppies and can’t make out where they have gone. What better way is there to cheer a girl up than to make a card. The Shabby Tea Room has another gorgeous challenge this week and the image reminds me of the bedroom I used to dream of having as a little girl …. wasn’t ever going to happen I have six brothers and two sisters…. Whenever I moved and decorated my bedroom it has always been pink. Andrew can even quote my fave colour if anyone had to ask him.

The Delicate Cottage Rose

Bunny Zoe’s Crafts – Their challenge this month is Vintage
Die Cut Dreams Challenge – Soft Shades of Vintage

Here is my card with an absolutely adorable image from Pink Petticoat which as you know I can’t get enough of, papers are Anna Griffin and again lots of distressing and French knots. I did the reverse masking technique on the dress and stamped with a rose image. Hope you enjoy.
