I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Stamp Fairy Challenge #6

This is my card for this week's challenge on STAMP FAIRY CHALLENGE which this week is:-

PAPER PIECING

I love this technique and it is so easy with digi images and papers :) I used Josy Christmas but thought she was quite neutral so could use for a general card too. The papers are a long forgotten set from Bearly Mine Designs.

Take a look at the CHALLENGE BLOG to see the other girlies creations and to join us.

I totally agree with Josy - some of the images are very neutral, which is SO handy! I love all the lacy circles and punch you used - a very pretty card Jane! Thanks so much for playing with Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
