its time for Paper Piecing

Yikes, its me again.......back with more DT work!
So.....aside from colouring digi's, one of my absolute favouritie things is Paper Piecing, so there was a fair bit of happy little crafter whooping, when I found out this was the theme for Aprils Forever Friends monthly challenge.....I couldnt wait to get going!!!
We were sponsored this time by
and, as you can see, I have used one of Janet's amazing images on my second card. I know lots of you like to play at PP too, so do come and play alond, and also check out the other gorgeous cards our talented team have made!

 For the first card, I have used:
- Forever Friends bear, stamped image coloured with promarkers and have PP'd the gift to co-ordinate with the paper is used, and also the ribbon and tag to coordinate with the kraft used too
- Sentiment from Netty's, printed onto kraft
-have used Go Kreate fancy square dies, also scalloped circle die
- the papers are dovecraft, back to basics range
- the button and ribbon where rescued from a pair of primark PJ's
- twine from Homebase!

Ginger loft - use Kraft
polka doodle - paper peicing
crafty ribbons - anything goes (with a ribbon)
simon says stamps -anything goes
ready-teddy-go - anything goes
a little bit crafty -anything goes

Next up,
- "sitting Chloe" from PG, coloured with promarkers, have PP'd her dungaress and bows
- papers are Helz Cuppleditch Special delivery pack (the green one),  found the other one in a bargin basket at Oyster stamps, I think its made by Best Creations inc
- border die from Cheery lynne
- bunting from dovecaft "tea party", with a little butchers twine
- pearls from meiflower
- ribbon from stash

a gem of a challenge -make it cute
