I want a checked coat too!

This time last week I was complaining about getting snow and now the start to this week is starting off cold, grey and very wet! Come on Spring where are you?!!

Okay, so today is Monday which means a new challenge has opened over at There She Goes and this week it's anything goes!  It doesn't get any easier than this!  You don't have to use TSG stamps to enter either so I really hope you can play along with us this week for a chance to win TSG gift vouchers!

So, here is my DT make...


This gorgeous girl is from the Sparkly and Bright set - this has three pretty girls as well as a set of fab matching sentiments and accessories (like those shopping bags!).  I did some paper piecing using My Minds Eye Lost and Found 3 papers and added a doily for some added prettiness!

Check out more gorgeousness and all the deets over at the There She Goes blog.  I'm off but I'll see you tomorrow with my By Lori Designs inspiration post!

The color of the paper is lovely.
That's a coat i would love to have to.
With the doily behind it she is really popping out of the card.

The doily is that a bought one or from a die??
And witch colors did you use for the shoes and the ...thing on her head ( Sorry can't come up with the english word for it ).
