A Stitch In Time



Hello!

It's Friday already - the weeks seem to fly by so fast lately! The current challenge on Sassy Cheryl's challenge blog has a theme of "A Stitch In Time" and this is my entry card. I have used one of Cheryl's digital images "Big Bear Hug" and I wanted it to look like a quilt square with an appliqued image so I just used the stitching around the outside of the blue. I had so many things happen to this card and each time I was able to cover an error another would occur and I would have to be inventive again to cover that one! The end result card is nothing like the one I planned to make! :>)

I love to paper piece and use the term 'fussy cutting' because of the time it takes - but now I have found another term for it as 'paper painting' and that might be my favorite way to describe it!  Check out http://sassycherylschallenge.blogspot.com/  to see Cheryl's challenge blog - you have plenty of time to make your card to enter this fun challenge!


Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog. We have some sunshine again in this part of WI and the temperature is to reach 72 degrees today. After so many cloudy and rainy days I love it! Wishing you a happy weekend!

Sometimes the more boo-boo's the better the card...in this case, your "fixes" made for an outstanding card!

Oh, I just LOVE the paper piecing. This is simply beautiful! It does look like an appliqu├ęd image and I LOVE quilts, so this is just beautiful.
Thanks for playing along in the Sassy Cheryl's Stitching challenge this week.
