CASE-ing Barb

Hi there,

I loved Barb's card so much, I had to try my hand at the technique of paper piecing. Thanks so much for the inspiration, my friend!

Here's my attempt...
Of course, I don't have the pretty papers Barb used, but I did have this sweet pattern paper from Making Memories' Flower Patch pack. I also decided to try my hand at piecing the overalls instead of the shirt. Then, I colored the image with my Prismas and OMS. All in all, I'm very pleased with the final result. Oh and did you notice the butterflies?? LOL Those are from a Martha Stewart punch. Thanks again, Barb!

Here's another card I was able to create today:
This one was inspired by this card on September Ninth blog. I don't own the same cartridge(s), but I found similar cuts from what I do own. The pitcher is from Kate's ABCs and the flowers Mother's Day Bouquet. The mats are from Storybook and the paper is from Nana's Kitchen. I added a few pearls to finish the look after I used a white gel pen to add the dots. I really like how this turned out.

Okay, that's it from me for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your Thursday has treated you well. The girls and I went roller skating for a little while. It was crowded, but we had a good time.
