Just Magnolia week 9 - Paper Piecing

jm-paper-piecing-1 It's week nine already! Doesn't time fly when you're having fun!! This week the challenge is Paper Piecing, and not only do we have a fab prize sponsored by The Hobby House, but the winner also gets to be our Guest Designer for July. Also, although it's taken a few weeks longer than first planned, starting on Tuesday we will be running two extra special challenges on Just Magnolia, the first one being launched bright and early on Tuesday morning - so remember to pop back for the latest news!!

For this weeks card I had a good rummage through my older papers (and there are soooo many of those that lay in the paper racks untouched and unloved :( and I think we all have them!) I fancied something soft and different from what I have been using lately so decided to go with these pretty Karen Neuberger and Lasting Impressions papers (how ancient are these!!) I only had 2 matching papers so made use of the Cuttlebug embossing folders for the 3rd layer.  I stamped the image on to the dotty paper and cut out her dress to paper piece.

I love these Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamps, they have the nicest wording and are so useful (they are left permanently on my desk now alongside my Whiff of Joy and Motivet sentiments, poor things are going to get worn out with all the use lol)

  41. Firstly let me apologize for not commenting or for that matter looking at your blog recently, I am afraid life got in the way again. I know it is no excuse but I am back to some form of normality now, lol.
    Wow what a lot of unique and simply wonderful things I have missed. This one is just gorgeous, I love the beautiful clean colours and as usual your colour combinations are first class. I am now going to have another look at all the things I have missed.
