Sweet on Paper Piecing

I actually got my 3rd Paper Piecing challenge card for the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog finished and with over 15 hours to spare(on the making if not the blogging). That's way ahead of schedule for me.LOL

I have to say, I've really had fun with this challenge, and I could have kept on making cards. I'm loving the look of paper piecing and need to do it more often. Phindy just has so many images that are suitable for the challenge over at the Phindy's Place Store. You REALLY need to check them out. If you're not hooked on her images, after you go to the store, you WILL be. This sweet image is called Lolly Dolly and even the cat is paper pieced. Don't you love those few wisps of hair on Dolly? Both my girls were bald forever as was my granddaughter. MM on the other hand was born with lots of hair and didn't lose any of it.

These fabulous digital papers are from the Garden Path Collection from Raspberry Road Designs. They might have been free, but I'm not sure. Go check out the link, because there are a ton of free kits as well as sales and bargains. I had to make the suckers with some Q-tip sticks and some hard candy small tree ornaments. The swirls are from a free SVG file called Home Decor Stencils by Shery K Designs.

The sketch is this week's Sketch Challenge over on Mojo Monday, so I guess I'll be entering that challenge too.

Again I went to Photoshop to create the sentiment. Seemed to be the right message for the image.


  1. Oh gosh Shirley, this is so cute! Those lollipops are just perfect and another great sentiment! Love, love, love seeing your cards each week!
