365 Cards - #139 - Try A Technique

Edited at 9.17pm 17.07.2009: I am such a loon sometimes!!! Honestly I thought Pam had said paper piecing! Not piercing lol!! It wasn't until I was checking out Sue's One4Joy blog that I realised my mistake. So I am gonna fly with this card now as I am too tired to have another crack at it tonight. My apologies Pam and the rest of the challengers and design team for making my error.

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge was to use Paper Piecing to create a pattern on your card. I had to make a birthday card for a 2 year old so the perfect stamp for her was chosen by her Aunt and I. This stamp is great for paper piecing the ears and heart. It is a stamp from my ancient stash and has not been used for about 15 years or so lol. This has to be short and sweet as my Mum comes tomorrow and I still need more hours today lol. It is going by too fast and before I know she will be here and I haven't done all the cleaning etc. . .bugger, bugger and bugger!!!! Phew I just this minute spoke to Mum on the phone and she is not arriving until 3.05pm tomorrow so I don't have to panic now lol.

This second shot is a close up of the heart paper piecing so excuse my hand because the ribbon would not stay out of the way lol and the only way I could make it do as it was told was to hold the jolly thing out of the road. Now that is it for tonight girls.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Pretty In Pink and Confetti White cardstock. Unknown brand of designer paper. PSX bear stamp. SU Markers. Ranger Distress Inks. Kaisercraft flower and rhinestone. Unknown brand of ribbon from my stash. SU white journal pen.

Michelle, cute card even if you thought it was paper piecing and not paper piercing. (lol)

Oh Michelle, how funny! I did the exact same thing. My DH and I just shared a giggle that you read piecing instead of piercing! Great card!
