Tuesday Throwdown paper piecing!

Sorry I've been absent a bit. Hubby is finally back to work, the critter (turned out to be a squirrel) has been trapped (humanely) and released back into the wild and I am finally getting back to normal around here! I missed the DT challenges last week due to various "things" but I am back to play today with Sherrod Studio's Tuesday Throwdown!

This week we were challenged by DT member Ceal to create a card featuring paper piecing. Here's my card using the set Winter Wonderland:



















Isn't she just the cutest? I paper pieced her dress with one side of the My Mind's Eye DP and then her hat, mittens and scarf are from the other side. Then I used the same papers on the card itself and added a simple punched border for a little embellishment. So easy and so fun!

Wanna play along? Try your hand at paper piecing a stamped image and then head over to the Sherrod Studio blog to leave a link to your artwork. We'd love to see what you create! And be sure to check out the rest of the team and see what inspiration they have for you!

** Just a quick announcement - I am going to be assisting my sister in her new business venture - as a consultant with Tastefully Simple! If you haven't tried their products, you definitely should - they are awesome! If you are in need of a Tastefully Simple consultant, please contact me and I will add you to our mailing list. In the Toledo area? Ask about our Blast Off Open House on February 13th! We'd love to see you there!

Have a great day!
