One of MY favorite things...Paper Piecing!

It's already the 21st of January! How did THAT happen?? I guess it's hard for me to believe it's January since I haven't had but one measly day of winter a month that is usually 90% snow filled! Today the temp is set to hit almost 60 degrees Fahrenheit. What? 60 degrees in January? Seriously?

ETA: Weather update. Clearly someone was imagining things when they came up with that's not even 35 degrees yet and it's lunchtime! Brr!
It is Sunday, and that means it's time for another new challenge at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog! We hope you had fun playing in last week's challenge and joining in our Birthday Celebration Blog Hop! The winners of the prizes will be announced shortly...and I will be posting the winner of my grab bag at Noon today, so make sure you stop back by!

This week our challenge is MY FAVORITE! It's all about Paper Piecing! Oh how I love thee...most definitely my favorite technique. And speaking of my favorite things...THAT'S who our sponsor is this week!

I am addicted to the line Pure Innocence--all the little girl and boy images are just so darling!! 
This card is one that just came together lickedy-split for me. The paper made that easy to do--it's My Mind's Eye...I need to buy another package of it since this one is rapidly disappearing! I used the newest MFT Sketch Challenge--then discovered I didn't remember one of the elements right...whoops! LOL! See if I go by memory again! But I love how sweet it turned out. Perfect for my sister-in-law's birthday yesterday. I paper pieced the little girl's dress using one paper for her jacket and the other for her dress. I think it's looks darling. The lace is new--I love how delicate it is! I also used two Die-namics from My Favorite Things--Prima Donna Petals and Fancy Flourish. The flourish is under the flower. I love those dienamics! I wish I could afford to buy them all!!

I brought a few strips of the paper inside with the image partially stamped with a "Happy Birthday" from the Sentimental Birthday set by There She Goes Clear Stamps.
We hope you will join us in our fun challenge this week! Paper piecing is so much fun!

Lisa, I love your card! And, I'm so happy to finally meet someone else who LOVES paper piecing like I do. Your attention to detail in the piecing is great...I can only imagine the time it took to make sure that blue flower was on her sleeve just perfect!
