Shopping our Stash #146 - Pieces of April


This week at Shopping our Stash we want you to revisit a technique that I know I hadn't done in a while - paper piecing! I used to do so much of it, and now that I'm happier with my colouring I've been doing more of that. It took me a while to think of what I wanted to do!


Supplies: stamps from Paper Smooches; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; MME papers; stickers from Doodlebug; classic small oval Nesties

Surprisingly (to me) I don't have many Easter sentiments, so adding the eggs & jelly beans 'Easters' up this card :)

So, ready to do some paper piecing?  Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, April 14th hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

You've reminded me that I have this set and I think maybe that it needs a little love, thanks for the 'kick' and for the great share!
