Be cheeky and wild and wonderful!

Well Hello there friends!!  I know it has been awhile since I was last here.  It gets discouraging not having visitors to my blog BUT if I'm going to get any visitors at all then I actually have to post so...I'm making it a priority again starting today!!  Yay!

Kraftin' Kimmie had a Koffee Krop this weekend that, of course, I didn't get to attend because it was in Canada but I did follow along on their Facebook group and it was really a lot of fun!  I decided to play along with one of the challenges they have, paper piecing.  I've always really love paper piecing and the fact that it makes it so I don't have to color as!  Here is my card made with one of the fabby images from Book Pals!
Ack!  Isn't she just adorable and oh so fun!  I've made this one as a birthday card for my SIL.  This image (which I believe is to be like Pippylongstocking) reminds me of me in my childhood...long hair and freckles...and super happy!  The papers are from Stampin' Up! and the dimensional banner die from Jaded Blossom.  I love every single thing about this card.  It makes me happy just looking at it and because of that I'm entering it in the paper piecing challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie's blog. By the way KKS has a sale every Friday of a select number of stamps that Kimmie chooses herself.  They are always between 20-50% off so they are a great deal.  Do remember the prices are in Canadian dollars so when they convert they are super affordable!!  I just purchased the Halloween Card Kit and I can wait to get it and show you guys!  I also noticed that Craft Your Passion Challenges has an anything goes challenge so I think I'll enter this card there, too! 

Well, there it first post of many!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you'll stop by regularly to see what is going on in my little world!  Oh!  If anyone has great tips for taking wonderful photos of my artwork would you please leave a comment - - I'd like to make them look super nice for you all!
