CHF Week #2 Challenge - Paper Piecing!

Here is my entry for the Week #2 Challenge over at Cornish Heritage Farms for the Summer Stamp Star Design Challenge.

Now this card was something I just loved loved loved to do! Paper and scissors and fun stamps and yummy papers. FUN! :)

I used some of my favorite papers by Webster Pages that have been hiding out (aka, hidden from my mini me crafting princess) so that I could play with them! (Note: Sami has been known to get into some favorite papers I left 'out' and used them to her little hearts desire... as in chop chop chop! which is fine.. really, it's fine.. I mean, they should be used! By someone!


Work News:
OK! So, get this. For my new fun job, I have to go to a crop till you drop tonight! Meaning, gosh, I have to pack my goodies (done!) and take them to town, and help other peeps shop and play, and not cook, but eat free tasty snacks (chocolate, anyone?) and stamp and scrapbook until midnight.. And, I get to bring the mini me, who gets to play, too. I mean, work. Yeah. That's it. Work. And, I get paid to do this!!!!!! Ha ha ha! I am feeling like one lucky girl!!

Of course, that is following the 'schedule' of one market last night, and another today..

Staying up until Midnight will be the test!

Gorgeous paper piecing and layering, Andi. Sounds like you have a good job at the scrap shop.

Hi, Andi! I adore your paper pieced card! It is fabulous! Truly stunning! And how much fun to go to a crop-til-you-drop and get paid to do it, instead of paying to attend! Hope you and your mini me had a blast! :-)
