Paper Piecing - Great to use up your scraps!

Good morning!

Tonight we have our downline (my upline's) meeting, and I'm doing a sample card for the Paper Piecing punch.  This is a punch I don't use very much at all, but just LOVED when I saw a card made with it many moons ago.   So, today I dusted it off, and made this card.   I'Paper Piecing 001m actually really pleased with how it turned out.  I also used my Watercolour Mini's Stamp Set, which I haven't used very often either, so I thought I was doing really well!  In fact, I like this card so much, that I'm doing it at $2 cards this Wednesday.  If you'd like to come along and make some with us, send me an email to let me know.  Hope the other ladies will like it as much as I do - always a bit nervous about making a card to give to other demos, as you feel other's styles and cards are always so much better than your own, but hey, at least I've done it! 

Recipe : Water Colour Minis, It's Your Birthday.  Inks : Black Stazon, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Green Galore, Garden Green, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie .  Cardstock : Green Galore, Rose Red, So Saffron, Garden Green, Basic Black, Whisper White, Vellum.

I've also made my Suprise Pop Up Card for my own downline swap tomorrow night.  I MIGHT post that one after tomorrow - I'll see how the response is from my ladies!  I'm not as pleased with that one - just used the wrong colours, and have now left it too late to change them all, so sorry in advance ladies - hope it will not be too embarrassing, esp as I've just peeped at Trudi's blog (www.madebyme79.blogspot.com) and seen what she has made, and they are FABULOUS!!   Wow, I'm dying to get my swap from her, and from the others.  Looking forward to it!  You all have a great day.  I'm back to get finished prepping for my $2 cards (I'm so impressed, as I've already done two of the five cards, and it's ONLY MONDAY)  Not at all like me, as usually it's Wednesday morning about 2am that I finish doing the cards.  Enjoy your Monday!

You come up with the greatest ideas too bad you live 1000's of miles away, I would love to come to one of your workshops. This is a really nice card.

I have a big rubbermaid bin full of scraps. I so need to use them. I always forget that I have them. Super cute card.
