The challenge at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog this week is to use red, white and blue. So here is Mimi, all decked out in her red, white and blue balloon! Perhaps she is flying over London to take in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration!!
I've paper-pieced the balloon and basket and colored Mimi with Copics. Some stitching, some clouds and blue pp background and she's all set.
I did spend some time watching the Jubilee events on television. I was a little girl when Queen Elizabeth was crowned and was fascinated by the process! Now I realize how young she was at 25 to assume such an important role even as she was grieving the loss of her father!
We have a cloudy day with little showers now and then; just enough bad weather to keep us from finishing our power-washing chores!!
Hope your Sunday is a mix of relaxation and stamping time!! Thanks for stopping by!
