Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by today!

Are you going to play in this week's 3 Clovers Challenge? We hope that you do!

For this card I paper pieced this sweet Tilda's dress. Paper piecing is easy! Just stamp the image once on white card stock...then stamp it again on patterned paper. Cut out the part of the image that you want to have the pattern on it and adhere it to the white card stock. Easy Peezy!

I used the layout from this week's Friday's Sketchers Challenge Blog. It definitely made me think....I didn't know what to use for the 3 stripes in the upper part of the card, because I didn't really want to cover up too much of the flowered paper. I love this paper from SU! Unfortunately, it is retiring at the end of this month and I just tried to order another pack tonight and disappointingly, SU! is all sold out! Boooooo! Getting back to the sketch, I also didn't have anything that seem to work to put in the bottom right....so I made my own paper rosette. This was the first time I have done this. I want to try it again...but changing a few things. So look out for more to come.


Don't forget to scroll down to see the winners of the Basic Grey Lime Rickey Paper and the Sticky Note Holder and Box!


Ok...I am off to bed!

Have a Lovely Thursday!
