4CC #192 {Paper Piecing and GDT Call!}

Happy "4 Crafty Chicks Thursday!"

This week, miss Leanne is our "hostess-with-the-mostess" and she's wanting to see PAPER PIECING on your card or project.

4 CC #192 {Paper Piecing}

I have been wanting to ink up this cutie from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called "A Sunshiney Day!" for a while now - and paper piecing was the perfect challenge for me to do so. I wanted a bright, cheery dress for her. It just so happens that I can throw my card into their "Anything Goes" Wonderful Wednesday challenge too! Bonus!

The color combination I am using is from the Dynamic Duos. I am sad to report that they will be shutting down their challenge site after this combo, so I really wanted to play along. I had so much fun designing for Lesley and Anne-Marie a while back and will definitely miss them - and I wished I would have played more often. It's always sad to see color challenges shut down, but I totally understand the whole "life is busy" dilemma and wish both Lesley and Anne-Marie the best!!! :)

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Penny's Paper-Crafty - Pastel Colors
Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes
The Squirrel and the Fox - Use a Die Cut or Punch (sun is a die cut and white layer is made with a die)

I sure hope you get some time to come and get crafty with us Chicks! We are on the hunt for Guest Designers for June, July and August, so be sure to put GDT after your name on your link up! Click HERE to see the wonderful projects the other Chicks have for you! Happy crafting! xoxoxo
