One More For the Road...


I managed to get a lot of cards done this weekend, so I decided to squeeze in just one more starring these two cuties from There She Goes stamps (Puppy Love).


I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
There She Goes - Back to Nature
Top Tip Tuesday - Sketches
Paper Sundaes - Paper Piecing

This last challenge reminded me of what I love and hate about paper piecing. I love how it looks! I hate to do it. :)

My Top Tip Tuesday tip for making your own sky background - start at the top of your white cardstock and work your way down. Slightly overlap and tilt your cloud template as you work down the page, slowly adding more blue ink and overlapping any sharp edges. Give it a try - it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it!
