Just because Your special

Hi guys,
having a break from decorating, the weathers been gorgeous and were have I been? painting and stripping wallpaper, 
 last night after tea the wind got up, we had thunder and lightning and rain, then  this morning it's gone all dull so at least I won't be as bothered at being in  lol,

the card I've done for today it's for Totally Tilda's challenge and this time it's for 
paper piecing,
we are being sponsored by our lovely Lynne of
and of course I have used her gorgeous sentiment digi,

well you know how I've not been able to get to the craft shops, of course I had no small print papers the went together easily and the only one I could find was this small spot, and believe me I tried to find some, I printed my different stamps out on all sorts of papers and none of them looked right lol,

do check out my teamies though who have done gorgeous creations with their's 

I have given my Distress inks an airing, I've done the background again too, need to practise more though lol,
I've also used some cheese cloth which is a pain I can tell you, as it wants to curl up when you've cut it as you can see on the piccies as when I made it it showed all under the main layer, will make a note to self to cut it larger to allow for shrinkage next time lol,

A little while ago I saw some cards you could buy with the edges cut off like above, well me being me thought I can do that myself! well I have a few times but gosh is it harder than I thought, trying to cut them similar and on a curve, should have bought the ones I saw after all lol,
