More bits and pieces!!

Well, I've decided that since today is my last official day of maternity leave, I would have a lazy day and just hang out - no house work, no errands, nothing! It's been great so far - we've successfully stayed in our pj's (except Johnny who decided to spit up on his) and not lifted a finger. I got the whole spa treatment from my 3 year-old (hair, make-up, and jewerly), AND I got to craft! Nice!!

So, now that I've rambled long enough, my SECOND card of the day is another paper pieced card. It is for several different challenges.

1. Phindy's Challenge Blog - Paper piecing - you should definately go check out Phindy's Blog and Store as well. She's having a poll on her blog, if you vote you might just win one of her "Halloween Cuties". At her store, she's having an end of summer sale - buy 3 images, get 1 free! Go check them out!

2 A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Sketch Challenge - I thought this simple sketch would work well for a boys card.

3. The Corrosive Challenge - "For the Guys" - I'm so glad that I have a guy card to make, I've had this paper FOREVER and never got around to using it. I've seen it a lot lately from other people's blogs and wanted to try it out.

4. Cards for Men - "Long Summer Days" - Now, this Phindy Image is definately a summer one in my book - ride on toys NEED to be OUTSIDE when you live in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 kids and a dog! Plus, shooting any liquid out of a straw better only happen outside!

5. Stamp Something - Something Cute - well, he is cute, isn't he?


  1. Very cute. Love all the tiny little pieces you cut. That takes a great deal of patience, which is why paper piecing is OK in my books but not at the top of the list. Thanks for sharing it with us at Phindy's Place.
