My Time To Craft 'Charming' Challenge

Good morning all, what lovely weather we have had this week I just wonder how long it will last. Last Sunday it was so nice to be able to get out in the garden for some fresh air although going out and buying the grandchildren a trampoline was not on the agenda but hey ho they might as well have one while we have some nice weather.  However after a lovely weekend my dear grandson decided to give me his lurgy lol. By Sunday evening I had the sorest throat I have ever had, an awful earache, along with a cough and cold and there is no sign of it leaving me as yet, yuck what a gift to give lol.

Anyhow onto the matter in hand it is time for a new challenge at My Time To Craft and this week it is 'Charming', you need to use a charm somewhere on your creation. I went with a shaped card this week and even added some paper piecing to my image so that her apron matched my card lol. I inked all the edges of my pieces including my image as I just felt it needed something.
