Paper Piercing and more Frugal February

 This week's challenge at Less is More is to use paper piercing on a c&s card.  I used some of the 6x6 pad that is sitting on my desk to be used up, this is now the 7th card (plus 6 ATCs) I've made from it, I've made a good dent in it but there's still a way to go before it's used up!  You may need to click on the photo to see the paper piercing, I've made stems and leaves for my flowers which were cut from the DP, Basic Grey Out of Print.  Sentiment is WOW.I'm also entering my card for Fab 'n' Funky's Flower Power challenge.
Next up is some more Joanna Sheen decoupage, I have cut out all my Faye Whitaker decoupage and moved on to Gruffy Bears!  First card is matted and a ribbon added, it really doesn't need much more I think.  I'm entering the Blogger's Challenge for the first time today, the theme is Friendship.
It is just a wicked rumour that this decoupage resembles the DP stacks in my craft room - honest!   A HM Gruffy Bears decoupage with some gems and a Craftwork Cards sentiment added, isn't he a cutie.  I'm entering this card for Card Crafter's Circle - teddy bears on parade challenge as well as Little Red Wagon's totally teddies challenge.

  12. Love the flowery DP you've used and what a brilliant idea to pierce the stems and leaves! Anita :)

  13. Love your teddy! And I have that DSP! WOW - isn't it funny when you see things you have in your stash that someone else has used... especially when you hadn't had a clue what to do with it! Thanks for the inspiration xxx

  14. Anne, I adore your LIM card...but I have to say that second card stole my heart! It's just beautiful!
