This has to be one of my favorite techniques! I was at Michelle's blog (if you haven't been there, you need to go - CUTE blog!!!) a little while ago, and she had created an adorable paper pieced card for a Christmas Challenge! How much fun is that?!!!?
The Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge #51 is to use paper piecing on our project. I used Christmas scraps, and this adorable JOY stamp by Stampendous.
The best part about this card is that I have one Christmas card made, and it's only May!
It's Friday! Have a great weekend - Patti J.

As you know, I was without computer for a couple of months, and I could not participate in challenges, etc. Now that I'm back, I'm having a bit of a coordination problem! Many of you work on multiple challenges each week, serve on five or ten design teams, etc. Sometimes, your cards meet 20 or more challenges! I am so, SO impressed!
I would really love to know your methods of coordinating it all!
- Do you know ahead of time each week, exactly what challenges you are going to participate in, or do you spend time on your computers searching for them?
- Do you have notepads at your computer where you scribble like crazy, or do you have a nice, tidy calendar with things neatly penciled in and/or color coded?
- Do you do the same challenges all the time, or do you hop around and try new challenges?
I am 100 percent NOT being sarcastic or sassy here - I really, truly, would love to know some of your organizational and coordination secrets so that I can tidy up my life (and desk) a little! It will be fun to hear what you all have to say, and I'm sure that others would love some 'tidy-up' advice, as well!
I'm excited to hear from you all!!! Thanks!

Let me start by saying hello dear blogging friends!!! My goodness, it's been a while since I was here! Thank you to all who are hanging in with me... more in a minute on that situation!
I have a card to post today. Talk about being outside of my box! I totally SUCK at CAS (clean and simple) cards. That's all there is to it. I cannot stop. I MUST add a dot of glitter. I WANT to add ribbon and buttons so badly that I almost get hives! And flowers??? Come on, do I ever make a card without flowers? Rarely...so are you surprised that I've done a ONE LAYER CAS card? I'm totally surprised...
ANYway....now that my heart palpitations have subsided, I'm ready to post my CAS card. I have become totally hooked on a blog called "Simplicity" by Late Blossom. Susan does the most phenomenal one layer work that I have ever seen. And darn, she makes it look SO easy, that I almost find myself believing I can do it! I think I will have to read her blog for about the next 800 years before I can really do what she does! Be sure to drop over and check her blog out - wow!
Susan posts a weekly challenge on Wednesday. This week, the challenge was to use a punctuation stamp on our card. As many stamps as I own, I think I really only have one set, Playful Parenthesis, by the Angel Co., that has any punctuation! So, guess which set I used? lol... The ink is Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Dusty Concord. Yes, I actually DID use a starburst glitter pen on almost everything! (sorry Susan, couldn't resist)
I hope you like it!
Now for some really exciting news! I have good news and bad news - the good news is that I AM GETTING MY COMPUTER BACK BETWEEN 3 AND 4 P.M. ON FRIDAY!!!!!!! WAHOO!!! The bad news is that we will have out of town company for the weekend, and I may not get to 'surf' until next week... :( I am so excited! I can once again check in on my peeps, leave comments, and join in challenges!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Food for thought: I'm retired - (I was tired yesterday, and I'm tired again today)!
