Phindy's Place Birthday Blog Hop and Paper Piecing Challenge



Good Morning and welcome to the Phindy's Place Challenge 1st Birthday Celebrations!   If you came here from the Challenge Blog you're in the right place, I'm first stop on the hop, otherwise please pop back to the challenge blog and check out all the details:).  Yes, it's one whole year  since we began posting challenges on the blog, I can't believe a year has gone so fast!  To celebrate we're holidng our weekly challenge as usual and we're also having a Blog Hop, I do hope you'll play along:)

Our challenge this week is paper piecing and the usual prizes are up for grabs, however we have a great bonus prize of  a $10 Voucher to use at Phindy's Place which will be won by one of out blog hoppers.  To win the prize you need to collect a word from each posting. When you've got the full sentence, please post it in the comments on the challenge blog (which will be hidden until the hop is over!  Blog Hop is open until midnight (GMT) 28 April.

Now, on to my card:  I made a fairly simple card for a little boy, the image is called Nap Time and he's almost entirely paper pieced. I've shaded the paper piecing with Copics, the papers are from an old Basic Grey pad called Recess.  The buttons are recycled from my old clothes button box, sentiment is a Joanna Sheen stamp and I've added some baker's twine as a masculine embellie:).

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hoped you liked my card.  Now it's time for you to continue hopping and visit the awesomely talented Ann English.  
Oh yes, you want a word from me lol!  My word is Phindy's  :)
