Paper Piecing


This afternoon I put together a thank-you card for one of my friends who cam to our rescue and looked after our children at short notice this evening as myself and my husband who never have a social life both had things to do this evening! I've been at our WI meeting and had a great time with a self defense lesson.

I had a go a paper piecing - I've been meaning to try it for a while and I wish I'd done it earlier - how fab is it?  I'm definitely going to do it again - it looks amazing.  As I mainly use digital images I wasn't to sure how to do it as all the tutorials I'd seen were for rubber stamping.  However the other day I saw this tutorial on the Card Crafter's Circle blog which explained how to do it with a digital image really simply.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Something New (New Technique!)
For Fun - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Spots and/or Stripes
Card Mad Fairy - Thank-you
Stamping For The Weekend - Out with the Old (It's all been lurking in my stash for a while!)

Thanks for Looking
