365 Cards - #159 - Setting The Scene - Indoors

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge was to set the scene indoors. So our card had to have an interior scene on it. I went into a flat panic as I did not have one stamp I could have said that was in any way shape or form an inside stamp lol. So I did what any normal stamper would do in this situation and went shopping online for a digi stamp. I found my image at SquiggleFly. I decided to paper piece it and man was that a mistake. Talk about fiddley lol I am getting the flu again so I am not feeling well AGAIN!!!! I tell you I never used to get sick at all and very rarely got a cold or flu but this year I have been sick with one or the other 4 or 5 times. We have the Swine Flu in our town too so I am worried about that. Anyway on with the days card hey. You all don't pop over to hear my woes I'm sure heehee. Below is my card and that is all I can say about it because I am not happy with the result other than the jolly flower in the right corner lol. I paper pieced the lounge and the little girls dress. The rest I coloured with my Derwent watercolour pencils.

Okay because it is so late I am finished for the night as it is now 1.56am here in Australia.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Michelle, this is just too sweet and I can't believe that we both got our images from the same place. How weird is that?

Oh Michelle, I hope you feel better soon. You did a great job on the paper piecing... and I love the image. It's cute the way her little shoes just plopped to the floor. Reminds me of ... me.

Michelle, that is just adorable, I will have to have a look at Squigglefly. I have been working on a card for my SIL for a 21st birthday - 5 Door Wardrobe - with embellies in the wardrobe - I will show a picture when I am finished it should fit this challenge.
Hugs
