Meet Matilda

Yesterday I introduced you to Marty, today it's time to meet Matilda!

This is Ballet Matilda and you can get her on offer at the Digi Stamp Boutique during April.

I've done a bit of paper piecing which is really easy with digi images if you haven't tried it yet. I didn't have much of this flowery paper left so I printed the image on white card and stuck a few scraps over the image where I wanted them using low tack tape and ran it back through the printer again. Then peel the paper off and cut around the areas I want and stick back down after colouring the little cutie in first.

I've followed the sketch from this weeks challenge at Sketch and Stash - my new stash being the gorgeous Matilda image. Digital Tuesday want scraps to be used up - I think you know from previous posts that I keep ALL my scraps lol! Finally Stampin' B's want to see humorous card, hopefully I've managed this with my printed sentiment!

I went out for a lovely lunch with my friend Mary today and then as I had time to kill afterwards and birthday pennies to spend I found myself buying some scrummy Channel Allure perfume and then my legs wandered over to Bobbi Brown and I decided to brave it and sit down and get a free makeover! I did of course buy a lipstick before I left, but I felt much prettier than before I'd sat down so it was well worth it. I wouldn't have done it if the shop had been busy though!

Have fun


  1. Oh my - how utterly fab!...I adore the paper piecing, the colours, the layout ...fabulous Victoria.....xx

  2. This is adorable. Glad you had a good day. I did the makeover thing once at a beauty event in J Lewis. When I opened my eyes all these people were gathered round me and I didn't even realise, felt very embarrased as they all oohed and ahhed over my make up!
