....and Happy Easter! This is a scheduled post so this might be a bit wrong, but we are currently enjoying a lovely caravan holiday in the New Forest (I'm sure photo's will follow!) and fingers crossed we are not freezing cold! I'll update you on my next post when we get back!
Anyway back to the crafting..... Today sees the start of the new Monthly challenge over at the Forever Friends Challenge Blog and the theme this time is a new one on me - Paper Piecing! This challenge is sponsored by
For more details on our sponsors and for info on the prizes on offer pop over to the Forever Friends Challenge Blog.
I've not tried thsi technique before, and once I had figured out which way the printer wanted to print I think my card came out OK. I've used the Chloe with daffodils image from Pink Gem Designs.
I hope that you can see that I have paper pieced her top and her boots!
I've also made a FF card for this challenge to wish you all a very 'Hoppy Easter':-
Can decoupage be classed as paper piecing?? I hope so!
Well, I hope that you don't all feel poorly from eating too many Easter eggs and I hope that we don't have frostbite from spending the weekend in the caravan!
I look forward to seeing all your comments and don't forget to enter the challenge at Forever Friends.
Catch up soon!
