Totally Tilda is Paper Piecing!

Over at Totally Tilda challenges this round we are asking you to do some paper piecing. It is so much fun I am not sure why I don't do it more often!

Did you catch that? Did ya? is.......exactly what you think it is! Stop rubbing your eyes you are seeing correctly although, you may start rubbing them again if you get too close! What is the fuss about you ask? My daughter thought I was totally nuts when I told her I was going to put my kitchen scraps on my card and there it is! I was clearing off the cupboard the next morning after supper (too lazy to do the dishes after supper and low and behold there was the top off my onion, all curled up and I thought "How pretty is that! I looks like a flower!" My daughter was mortified, she said straight away "What are they gonna think when you give it to them and it stinks like onion!" "Well darlin, that is what body spray is for!" I told her. Couple of spritz's and it smells like....a rose!
And a close up of my lovely recycled onion!

Look how the onion skin matches the butterfly, that was so planned, not!

And, oh oh I finally got to use my new magnolia dragonfly dohickey that I got fer me birthday from me bestest friend ever Cor! Sorry Corry, it worked like a charm so I think yours is defective. Better send it back. Thanks baby for mine, which you can of course borrow anytime till you get yer new one!

Gonna enter this one over at Magnolia-licious challenges where the theme is Pink and Green. Oh, I am also gonna sneek this in over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers where the theme is flowers! Maybe my onion flower will catch their eye!

You make sure you head over to Totally Tilda and get your paper pieced creation in there!

XO Pickles!

I'm baaaaaack!

I know, you were thinking... OMG, did she die. That is what I think when bloggers drop off the face of the blogiverse. No, I was just busy. I am back though with a new challenge over at Totally Tilda

Tilda around the world!

I just love this Asian Tilda. 
 Do I need to say it...papers are K&Company, flowers are Wild Orchid, ribbon is CTMH.
I colored her with Copics and I used chalk for her cheeks. Big cheater huh!

Head on over to Totally Tilda and get your entries in cause Susie always has great prizes and she is cute too.

I am going to enter this card over at Paper Sundaes where the challenge is childhood memories. This card is my childhood memory of our old neighbor. She used to go every year to China and she would always bring us home candy which was totally cool. I always wanted an umbrella from China and lo and behold one time she brought one home for me. I totally wrecked it, idiot, but it was cool.
