Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Our sponsor is Sami Stamps with a twist of Paper Piecing.

Welcome everyone to my blog and to another wonderful

Firstly I would like to apologise to everyone especially my fellow design team members, and our wonderful followers for not commenting on your blogs about your amazing cards this week.  I had  a heck of a week with sporting commitments travelling 100's of kilometres each day for 5 days in a row and at the end of it I didn't know if I was Arthur or Martha.  As of today I have one son back at school and the second starts next Monday and then I'll be able to get back to routines and reality.

This week Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 has a twist, the last week of each month we won't be having a new sketch, you can choose your favourite one from the past month and January's twist is PAPER PIECING.

This week I have chosen sketch # 002 it wasn't my favourtie sketch #001 was but felt that the image I was using best fitted this sketch and after creating my card with sketch #001 I felt I couldn't do that sketch justice again as I loved my first attempt so much.  

Sketch #002

Here's is this weeks card and my card I made earlier this month using this same sketch.

Kathie, love the bright color of your beautiful card. It is soooo cold here. It is -20 with the windchill that we haven't had school for the past two days. Sounds like you have been BUSY! Hope you are having fun with the boys.

Hi Kathie! While I was walking my puppy at lunch time I saw some orange and yellow flowers and I was thinking about what a pretty combination they were, and then I come by and visit and see that your card are those colors! What a beautiful job you always do, and the paper piecing works perfectly with this stamp too. I hope you're doing well. Take care!

Peace & Luv,

Gorgeous colors Kathie! This is a darling card. It was funny because I considered piecing the dress too but worried that it would look too overworked but it doesn't. Looks great pieced. Nice job!
