Simon Says "Paper Piecing"

Good evening to you,

The current challenge at Simon Says is "Paper Piecing". I just love to paper piece and couldn't resist making a card for this challenge.


Hopefully I will be able to send this card to my brother and sister-in-law very soon. Their new baby boy is overdue and should be making an appearance any day now.

I've used a Forever Friends stamp called "New Arrival", an Elzybells sentiment and digi papers "A Patchwork of Papers - Blue" from Cuddly Buddly. (Since I took this picture I have popped a foam pad under the sentiment to stop it from sagging!).

For those of you in the UK, enjoy the bank holiday tomorrow.

Hugs, Clare x

Hiya Clare, I love the card - forever friends are the cutest little things.
I've got my fingers crossed for your brother and sister-in-law, I know first hand how annoying it is when your little bundle of joy decides to take an extended holiday ;)

Claire, this is just gorgeous. I'm going to be an auntie to a little boy in September. I can't wait as it will remind me of my two when they were born... pitty they have to grow into teenagers LOL.

Hope you are ok... i'm coming to catch up on your posts - i've been rubbish at blogging recently.

I think this is my favorite! I love the clean simplicity and overall cuteness of it! The label is pretty cool too. :-)
