Paper Piecing Take Two

This has been the craftiest weekend I've had in a very long time. It's like I'm trying to get it all done, so I don't miss out on any of the fun. As it is, I'm off today to help rebuild a friend's company books in his new computer. His old one got struck by lightning last week, and he hadn't backed up his files in a very long time. That's two lessons in one. Have a VERY GOOD surge protector and some type of backup preferably off line. I'm looking into that one, although I do have an extra external drive.
So back to the Paper Piecing. When the DT at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog named this as the challenge, I got busy looking for papers. Both the "Just Hanging Around" image I used yesterday and the "Hopscotch" image I'm using today are two that I have been wanting to use in cards, so image wasn't a problem. You really need to check out all the images that Phindy has in her STORE. She does children that so remind me of growing up and babbies that remind me of both my grandchildren and all my nieces and nephews as babies, I simply can't resist them.

The papers that I used for this card are from a fabulous digital kit called Denim and Daisies and are from Just So Scrappy 2. It was a bargain, too and has some great papers in it. The word art is again something I created in Photoshop just for this card. I'm posting it below. Again, you're welcome to use it. If you can't click on it, and get the enlarged version, e-mail me and I'll send it to you.

Don't forget to check out the Blog Hop that's going on on the Challenge Blog to celebrate the Blog's 1 Year Anniversary. There's an extra $10 coupon up for grabs along with the usual random and Pick of the Week winners. The DT has created some awesome projects, and I promise you're in for a treat.

Thanks for stopping by. I have to head out the door and meet my walking buddy. I need some exercise after this past weekend of crafting and eating. Hope you all have a wonderful week.
