TLT - Paper Piecing


Hi friends!!

Thanks for popping in; I truly love when you visit! 

Today, the bugsters (Totally Ladybug Tuesday by Ladybug Crafts Ink) and I are challenging you to paper piecing - one of my FAVE techniques. And I had cute little buttercup with the most adorable dog house just WAITING to be paper pieced - and I even came across this woodgrain-like DP from MME. Meant to be! I also paper pieced the flower and Buttercup's sign - covered with glossy accents...of course. What cute girl doesn't need some shine?  :D

The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #166 - can you believe I do not own ANY type of pennant flags...circle, triangle, flag, etc. - not. a. single. style...therefore I cut some strips and used my square punch to make small flags...the best I could do!  :D

Lots of rich fall colors going on here, an older MME paper pad, but great colors for little buttercup. PTI has a stamp set designed by Dawn McVey (Scattered Showers) which has this perfect sentiment "cheer up buttercup"; thought it was perfect since Buttercup is in the dog house - HA!

Hope you'll join us this week for paper piecing!

Hugs, ~M.
