A Not So Scary Scarecrow - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good morning peeps,
I think I could sleep for England at the moment! I sat down last night for a blogging session and the next thing I knew Jodie woke me up at almost midnight lifting my laptop off my lap, it probably didn't help that we went out for a lovely carvery yesterday and I had a mahoosive plate full, and I mean mahoosive so I was stuffed lol.

Today is new challenge day at
and this weeks challenge is
so dust off yor sewing machines, sew easys, good old needles and threads or go with a bit of faux stiching if you fancy a doodle and come and join us

Ingredients -
Image - Magnolia , Scarecrow Tilda from the Sweet Rainbow 2011 collection and she's available as a mini too HERE
Papers - Magnolia
Flowers - Prima & Magnolia

The large stitch is also a Magnolia stamp which I stamped directly onto the paper and also a piece of watercolour paper & coloured, cut and paper pieced so I would still have the effect of the tiny dots around the stitch
