Wags 'n Whiskers - Paper Piecing

If you are looking for my Crafts 4 Eternity post, please scroll down or click HERE.

Oh yes - I LOVE TO PAPER PIECE; so I was in heaven with this challenge at Wags 'n Whiskers!! And isn't this image just adorable? It's Ellie and Squeak - I'm in love (please note, this is the ONLY time I will ever love a mouse) . LOL

I paper pieced every single piece of the image! :D Ellie and Squeak are in the same polka dot paper, then I paper pieced the gift 2 more times - the verbiage 'wrapping paper' and then the ribbon is an additional layer. I colored the ribbon with a clear Wink of Stella pen and also added glossy accents for more fun dimension. I also paper pieced Ellie's party hat which also received some clear Wink of Stella accents - love all the sparkle and shimmer...oh, and did you notice Ellie's gorgeous toenails and tail? Yes, they have black Wink of Stella on them too - HA!



I doodled around the edge of the image, added some fun heart ribbon and a 4-looped bow then tied on a little heart charm from PTI's Tiny Tags set. Super fun - quick and simple too. I hope you'll join along in our paper piecing challenge! Have a great weekend and thanks for popping in - I so love when you visit!

Hugs,
