Polkadoodle Friday

The challenge this week is paper piecing, so I printed the girl image out in black and white, then again onto the lovely pastel check paper - she was just made to wear checked dungarees wasn't she? The stitching is faux, I am finding with my cute but difficult to thread machine that this is my best option, so I randomly stitched some wobbly lines then joined the dots with a black pen.
Papers and image are from the Back to Nature CD by Polkadoodles

Be sure to check out the blog lots of inspiration over there, and have a go at the challenge, as always there is a prize for the top polkadoodler of the week
I am entering this in the Colour Create challenge as well, which is soft pink, soft blue, white and silver. I put some silvery glitter in some of the polkadots, but they don't show up in the picture.
Tune in to Create and Craft TV at 11am tomorrow, our lovely Funky Hand boss Anice is doing a live show with her latest CD -Dreams Come True - if you haven't seen a demo of this, be sure to watch, it really is the best Funky Hand CD ever, the papers are just fabulous, and lots of interactive images and stuff on there as well
