Happy Sunday all!
I hope you're all having a great weekend!
Did you see lot's of fireworks last night? I hope you stayed safe!
It's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad!
This week the theme for Challenge #146 is Paper Piecing!
Now,I must say I have never tried this before & I found it a bit of a challenge!
However, once I'd figured it out I had a whole lot of fun with it!
You can find a useful tutorial on Paper Piecing on The Crafty Pad blog here!
Here's my card!
The DT were given Sammy Scarecrow to work with this week!
He's such a cutie isn't he!!!
Reminds me of a few years back when we all dressed up
as characters from The Wizard of Oz! I was the Scarecrow!
We raised lots of money that year for Children in Need!
You can get him here for just 99p. A fantastic bargain!!!
Forgot to tell you who our sponsors are this week!
Yep, I said sponsors!!!!
We have a set of Grey Promarkers from Letraset
we have a Prize from Crafty Ribbons too!
For the design of my card,
I used the sketch from Midnight Madness #128
I used a sheet of brown textured cardstock to make my 5"x5" card base.
The papers I have used are all from my stash.
I distressed the edges of all the layers using a pair of scissors!
The image was mainly paper pieced,
the rest was coloured with Promarkers & the background chalked in.
The flowers & leaves were all punched from scraps of the papers I used.
I hope you like my little card!
Now hop on over to the challenge blog to see what lovely creations
the other ladies of the DT have come up with.
I hope you are inspired & have the time to come & play in our
Paper Piecing Challenge this week!
I must apologise for the quality of my photos, I just can't get any in
daylight now as I'm at work all day!
I have asked Santa for a pop up tent though & I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
