Happy Birthday, Joan. I like paper-piecing too! I think it's because I like to cut out paper! I'll definitely be playing along.

A VERY Happy Birthday to you, Joan!! Loved your challenge since I don't do much paper piecing, but I love the results one gets. I combined your challenge with the CAS one for today....they seemed to go together well.

GREAT challenge Joan! Scissors and I never got along in the past but we've become friends and I actually enjoy paper piecing now too! Hope to make a card this evening!!!

Glad to hear that your dad is home and resting now. Hope he continues to do well and have a speedy recovery!

Paper-piecing is always so much fun. It takes me back to my days of cutting out paper dolls. Here's my card --

Wink TLC376 Sunny Sailing

Joan- a special thanks for this challenge, I finally get it straight what paper piecing is I used Inkadinkado's Sea Breezes for my sailboat, and shades of blue and green, applied around a scalloped circle template. Here's Sunny Sailing.

Wink TLC376 Happy Butterfly

Had to do another one- I had this butterfly started, so I re-stamped it on pink batik style paper- but didn't want to cover up much of my original. Here's Happy Butterfly.

Smile TLC376 Live Each Day

After seeing all the pretty cards- I decided I wanted to stamp an image of a lady in a dress- so I combined SU's Sweet Serendipity for my message- Live Each Day with Laughter (&) enthusiasm. with Judi Kin's Suzie. I added some Xs and Os, embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots EF, and a fruit border. Here's Live Each Day

Joan, Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful blessed day! I paper pieced magnolias for my card. I combined it with a technique that Joan shared with us almost 2 years ago called pounded flowers.
