Freckled Face


It's really been "one of those weeks" around here so thought I'd post this quick and easy card.  The stamp is from My Favorite Things (Freckles).  When I was younger (MUCH younger), I had flaming red hair (not sure where all that went!!!) and freckles all over my body.  I think every time I got out in the sun, about a million more of those little gems popped out.  By the end of each summer I was just a general mess of freckles!  I still have the freckles - but I think they're considered "age spots" now!  Pretty sad to say!  Anyway............back to the card......I paper pieced both her jeans and her shirt out of some scraps (snippets) and then just colored the rest and popped her on top of the oval.

So, no Funny Friday today but hope to get back to those soon.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixies Crafty Workshop (snippets) and Alphabet Challenge Blog (paper piecing).

Thanks for stopping by................and have a great weekend.

Aw, this is pure adorable. I love this little waif - for some reason I like her but not the Tilda so much. She tugs at the heartstrings I guess. Love your paper piecing, and you are the queen of the clean & white. This is no exception. (Yeah, we all got age spots. Call it sun damage. My dermatologist does!!Hugs). TFS

NanaConnie said...

A red head with freckles -- you're singing my tune, Lynn. lol I love this card! She's so cute in her paper pieced outfit and the twine is exactly the right touch. Ribbon would have just been too much.
