Oh, how have you been? ;) Sorry for being MIA, life just creeps up and snatches every single moment and minute. I know I haven't been the best at visiting you and others on a more consistent basis although I really try to. I now find myself checking blogs, commenting, and reading emails at night when the kids are asleep and after cleaning up. By that time, I'm literally zapped and hardly have energy to keep my eyes open. Just know that I appreciate you coming by my blog and leaving such sweet words!
Well, today is FFF over at Farm Fresh Challenge Blog. This week should be easy peasy! All you have to do is Piece It Together...otherwise known as paper piecing. You can piece as little or as much as you want! Come join us! :)
Here's my paper piecing on Blush Bonnie's dress. I enjoy paper piecing but sometimes it's more of a challenge to cut around odd areas of images. Ok, I really wanted to try this Double Twisted Easel Card. I don't have a link to this card . . . all you have to do is google "Double Twisted Easel Card" - the flood gates will open! Seriously!
A friend's birthday is coming up soon and I know she enjoys gardening. Well, maybe it's more of a therapeutic thing. In any case, I just want to wish her a sweet birthday!
Here's what the card looks like when folded to its original state.
This is the first panel. Not sure if you can see, but I colored in areas with copics (W's) where there would be shadows on the paper pieced dress. Crackle paint was added to the fence for a worn look and for more of a worn look, I smudge grey chalk over the crackled paint.
This is the second panel. Since I don't garden (I'm a plant killer, don't have a Green Thumb), I'm sending this bouquet of flowers in a watering can.
Well, that's it for me! Hope I didn't bore you.
The FFF challenges runs until Thursday, entries are due by 12 PM CST. The winner will receive a free single TGF stamp of choice! Please upload your challenge cards to TGF Galleria> Farm Fresh Challenges 2011> Farm Fresh Fridays 2011> Paper Piecing. Thanks for stoppin' in!
