You can tell the kids are back at school can't you? 2 posts in one week!!
I am playing along with 2 monthly challenges today, Make the Day Special are running a sketch challenge and Mama Elephant are asking for paper-pieced thank you cards (Oh Bother, after uploading the challenge pic I have just realised my schoolgirl error... no prizes for guessing what it is!).
I only have one ME stamp set at the moment and when I looked at it I must admit I nearly quit before I even started, paper-piecing those dinky little images was not going to be easy! But I persevered and ended up being delighted with the result. It's the first time I've tried a cloudy background for my images and was totally inspired by this card by Torico.
I used my lawn Fawn grass border die to cut 2 borders, one of card and one of fun foam, I love the extra dimension the foam brings to the card but to tone down the green a little I added a vellum banner embossed with an Avery Elle
The images which were masked first to create a cute little scene are paper-pieced with Lawn Fawn Hello sunshine PPs, that little guys onsie with the moon and stars on it is so cute I WANNA DIE!!!! Ha ha =D
I have some more ME stamps on order, I'm hoping they'll arrive before the end of the month so I have a chance to re-enter the ME&Me challenge again this time following ALL the guidelines *rolleyes*
Until next time!
