Just us Girls and Truly Scrumptious







I love blog challenges. It keeps me stamping and gives me new ideas. This weekend I found two new challenges to me and I was really happy. Anyway the Just us Girls challenge http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/ was paper piecing. Guess what I have never paper pieced but I watched the video that was posted on their blog and got an idea using this precious moment stamp by Stampendous. Why did they stop making these stamps. I love precious moments. The sketch is from the next challenge I found Truly Scrumptious Challenges http://www.trulyscrumptiouschallenges.blogspot.com/ My image was a bit large for the sketch but I made it work. When I was cutting out the dress I thought I would never do this again but after it was done I thought this is pretty cool. Thanks for looking.

Well I was just tickled to know that you tried paper piecing for the first time - that makes me smile! I'm also glad you used Gina's fabulous video. This angel is BEAUTIFUL with her paper pieced dress. Yes, sometimes it's a bit of work but SO WORTH IT right? Thank you SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. I hope you really had fun and will come back again!
