Know What Day IT IS!


I LOVE this image! LOVE it! From the first time I saw it I wanted to use it on a card but until today I did not know how to do it other than in the "I forgot" sense. It was this morning when I realized it was Friday the 13th - that I knew that this was the card I would make using this image. This cutie is called "Whoops!" and is one of Sassy Cheryl's digital images. Isn't she great?

I saw on a challenge blog that they were doing paper piecing and as I love detail and 'fussy cutting' as most of you know, I started with the idea to enter this challenge using this sweetheart as she was a perfect image to use for this technique - BUT today when I went to enter my card on that blog I saw that it had 'expired 78.5 minutes ago'! Oh No!

Well, I missed that one - but it was great inspiration for my card and I still could enter it in the other two challenges that I had created it for! Sassy Cheryl's Blog "Show Me" was one and Simon Says Stamp! challenge of "Spots &/Or Stripes" was the other one. I had such fun making this - as I was in my element! I started out to just make the one card but of course could not waste the reverse images when I could cut out more pieces! So here it the second creation.

Isn't it amazing how the identical image can look so different with a change of colors/papers? (Good thing to keep in mind that one printing of an image on your patterned paper can be used to make two different looking cards!)

You can see Cheryl's challenge blog here: and you can see Simon's challenge here: Have fun looking at all of the wonderful entries and be sure to enter your own creations! I forgot to tell you that last Thursday, January 5th, I was one of the lucky winners on Cheryl's blog! It was so exciting to see my name and I can tell you that I lost no time at all collecting my image! :<)

Wishing you a great weekend! We have snow and more snow here in this part of WI - as do so many states with their first real snowfall. I am late today because of the cleaning off my car, moving it, etc. but we are to have some warm days next week! After a very gloomy morning (explains dark photos) we now have sunshine so that is good! Take care!

Wonderful paper piecing! Great idea for a "oops" card - the expression is the perfect fit for that theme!

You are one smart cookie using the reverse of the papers to create two cards, and they do look totally different. They are both however as cute as can be.
