Joy

Oh, the JOY of paper piecing!

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.



Food for thought: Only in America can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance...

Patti that is the cutest little Xmas card. You are WAYYYY ahead of this chick. The thought of Christmas cards makes me tired. UGH! Besides it's HOT today so I can't even go there. Kudos to you though.
