Hello, it's Tuesday!

Time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown ! I'm delighted to be guest designer for this lovely challenge blog for the month of August, and I would just like to say what a wonderful, supportive and friendly bunch these ladies are! It is great to be part of their team for a while!
Anyways, this week there is a sketch to follow:-
and I was given this cute owl image to play with, courtesy of this week's sponsor, My Grafico.  To me this cute image just cried out to be paper-pieced (no surprise there, then!) so I went to town with several different dps! His eyes are covered with glossy accents. The music die is Memory Box.
Thanks for looking, don't forget to check out the lovely ladies at Tuesday Throwdown and we'd love to have you join us this week.

Stunning creation, loving the image and the colour combo too... Oh wow power in prayer or the power and determination and will of an old man to keep on living....his smile today was priceless and he actually ate a bit of porridge and soup for me today. Yesterday we were told to tell family and have his Last Rights given by the Priest, he was not able to open the Golden Gates... I have decided to come home this evening after spending all night with him and try and relax....and this is how I relax....thanks for your sweet thoughts, I value my friends here...♥aNNie

The Journey is the Start
