C.R.A.F.T Challenge # 35 - Paper Piecing....


Good morning peeps!

Here is a card I made for my friend who has just moved into her very first home with her boyfriend. I've used those yummy papers from the Basic Grey Indian Summer range and the coffee pot image is from a Pink Cat Studio set I picked up at the NEC last year. I created the sentiment on my PC and added some lollipop flowers with button centres to finish.

I'm entering my card into the C.R.A.F.T Challenge this week where the theme is paper piecing, something I always really enjoy doing ;o)

Hope you have a nice day and don't get too wet in all this rain we're being treated to....... at least it isn't quite as cold as it has been!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

A fab card Tara, I like the pieced coffee pot. Very inspirational as I've had this stamp set for years and have barely used it.
