Hello dear friend

A quick little card today for a friend of mine. I love this little bird from Unity – I don’t use it very often, but I think it is so sweet. I paper-pieced this cutie with some old American Crafts paper – I know this was popular awhile ago, but I still can’t get enough of it. I have also been seriously hoarding this rose ribbon, but finally forced myself to use it! (Sorry for the plain background!).

This card is for the current paper piecing challenges at Wee Memories and Simon Says Stamp.

Short & Sweet

A super quick post tonight – just about to head out for a date night but no restaurant booking, so its not looking good for 7:45pm on a Friday night. Oh well – we’ll be spontaneous!

Anyway, wanted to squeeze in this card I whipped up for the current sketch challenge over at Card Patterns. I thought this sketch would be very difficult for me, but found that this came together much faster than usual. I also haven’t jumped on the rolled flower bandwagon yet – not that I don’t love them, just haven’t ventured in that direction. I decided to give it a try using felt for this card & I really liked the result – not perfect, but a decent first attempt! One of my fave color combos as well – red, aqua & kraft.
