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.

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

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.

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.

I love paper piecing too! I have found that the nicest people love paper piecing and are born in May ;) Here is my Red Chic card. I'll be back to comment in the gallery after lunch with DH.

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

Crafty Julia 05-07-2012 09:46 AM

Joan- very happy birthday wishes, you are a dear!

MariLynn 05-07-2012 10:13 AM

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.
