Hugs & Fishes!

I hope you're all having a great week, I've been off work for a couple of days with a bad back :( so everything has been challenging & very frustrating as I have so much to do.  I hoping to go back tomorrow but the thought of sitting a chair for 8 hours fills me with dread (I'm better keeping moving or lying flat lol) .  I did mange to finish my card for this week's challenge at The Paper Shelter however, which is "Paper Piecing".  I love this cute image called "Love Bubbles", I added some shading with ProMarkers & used Glossy Accents on the bubbles.  The papers are digi & FREE from Everyday Mom Ideas & I used my sewing machine around the edges, finishing off with some Glamour Dust, buttons & some fish charms.  I hope you can join us as there is the chance to win some fabulous images of your choice ($20 gift voucher to spend at TPS if you use one of their images & even if you don't you could still win 3 of their gorgeous images).

The challenges:
Craft Your Days Away - Just For Men + Buttons
The Crafty Pad - The Perfect Pair
MilkCoffee - Anything Goes
Stamp & Create - Paper Piecing

Thanks for looking & hope you have time to join in with this week's challenge :)
