PAPER PIECING

Hello everyone,

It was a horrible rainy day here yesterday so I took the opportunity to make a card for the challenge at Allsorts where it is a challenge in memory of Kath, one of the DT, who sadly passed away recently.


I decided to go with the paper piecing option and used my wooden Penny Black stamp called Gossamer which I have stamped  twice and pieced with snippets of papers from a Doodlebug pad.  On the largest flowers I have doubled up on a few of the petals for added interest.  I have framed it with my Clearly Besotted frame dies and added tiny enamel dots to the centres and a few raindrops from Little Things from Lucy's cards.  The sentiment is from LOTV.

I have just got back from a lovely lunch with 3 friends who I meet up with every now and again and it was so nice to have a chat.  I have a dentist appointment tomorrow though, not looking forward to that one.

I would like to enter:

Allsorts - Challenge for Kath
Pixie's Snippets Playground  - snippets used were the flowers and the frame.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a good rest of the day.

Hi Lynne

Your PB Gossamer card is gorgeous. SNAP! I couldn't resist playing with the same stamp for Kath! I've never put that stamp twice onto a card front and I really love the look of it (something to remember for another day!)

I'm still helping Miss Di out with Playground commenting, but she's making a rapid recovery, so come and join in the mischief up at the Treehouse before she can start climbing the rope ladder and stop us! Apparently she's busy trying to train Dudley to spy on us and report back!

Thanks for playing in the Snippets Playground.
Hugs from the Snippets Prefect. x

Oh I do love a frame and I am away to look for that die set very shortly Lynn.

Your paper pieced Gossamer blooms look lovely, really like how you have done them in different colours and I know it would have ticked all the right boxes for Kath.

Thank you so much for joining in our Challenge for Kath at Allsorts.
