A little bit of paper piecing

Hello there,

I hope you are well and have had a good week.

As some of you know I have been here, there and everywhere with work recently. Just this week I have managed a trip to Cheltenham and Manchester, as well as time spent in our head office in Epsom. I've been really busy and exhausted a lot of the time, but I am pleased to report that I've had some brilliant news from work recently. I have been promoted! I am so proud of myself and I just wanted to share with everyone!

Anyway, enough of that...onto this week's challenge from Sweet Stampin. This week we would like to see your paper piecing grab your favourite stamp and papers and get crafting!

I've kept it nice and simple for this card, letting my images do the talking.....

I've taken two of my favourite stamps and a selection of pretty patterned papers. I have used my Promarkers to add a little details, as well as a little sparkle on the cherry with my Stickles.

I have finished the card with some faux stitching around the edge.

I'm really pleased with how this card has turned out and will probably make some more to send to family.

For more inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at what Team Abi have created. While you're there you can also read all about our fab sponsor this week:

There is also still a little time left to enter my fab afternoon tea competition over on my other blog. To find out more take a peek at Tea With Me and Friends!

Hello there,

Well, I don't know what is happening in my office at the moment...but all the ladies who sit at desks in my area are either getting engaged, getting a new job or having babies! Honestly....if we are not talking about wedding dresses we seem to be comparing baby bumps! I'll be clear that none of these things apply to me...although everyone keeps suggesting that I need to fit into one of the groups!!

This week's Sweet Stampin challenge fits in nicely with this theme however as this week we want to see your projects featuring babies!

Here is my card....featuring some rather cute little images.....

I bought these images as a set about five months ago when Joe's little niece Isabelle was born and I wanted to make a card for her. I think they are so sweet! I've coloured my images with my Promarkers and have gone with a really girly pink colour scheme!

I can't quite believe that five months have flown by so quickly already! 

For more "baby" inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at Team Abi's cute cards! While you are there you can also read all about our fab sponsor this week....
