Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Viva La Difference with Paper Piecing

Denise's Stamping Vacation
The challenge this week is use Gingham, Orange, Brown & White

I guess this is more plaid than gingham but I don't have much
in my gingham department. For the brown I used SU Choclate Chip, yummy,
a white panel under the gingham and orange and brown letters
on white squares. The buttons are brown metal and they have
the word Farah printed on them. I also added a thin strip of
white ribbon. Maybe I should have used the brown.

Now the Paper Piecing
has Challenge #2 "Paper Piecing" posted.
You have until July 31 to play.

Flutterby Challenge #66
Pink, Brown and a Fairy or Butterfly

I got this idea from Teresa. She came up with this theme for
the swap that I'm in. Thank you Teresa.
I had so much fun piecing my scraps of paper and I was
so pleased with the outcome, I decided to use this
theme for the Groups' Challenge #2.
So Paper Piecing it is. It is fun and easy.
I stamped my tulip image, Canadian Maple Collections, twice. Once on
pink and once on a scrap of designer paper. I cut the pink panel to
size and cut out the tulip blossoms on the designer paper.
I glued them in place. Ooh, I like that. So, I decided
to piece the birds also. I still had enough scrap paper to cut out
a blossom to layer under the pink panel. Pink polka dot ribbon
and a pink and brown butterfly finish my card.
