Have I mentioned...

I used to do quite a bit of paper piecing. Yep, I would draw up my own patterns, trace them onto different papers, cut it all out and glue it together. I enjoyed it, there is something kind of zen and soothing about sitting and cutting paper with scissors. I even sold them on ebay for awhile but boy was it time consuming and hard to recoup all the time that goes into them. So I eventually realized that stamping is just so much quicker! :)
Still, every once in a while I like to sit down with my paper scraps and piece something together. This little witch is actually one I made a few months ago but was still waiting for a home so yesterday I made this card. She is actually just one of about six or seven little witch designs that I made, each doing a different activity. There is just something in my programming that makes me tend to work in series... if one is good five is better I guess... ;)
The same goes for most anything I draw... fairies, elves... well you get the picture...
So there you go, one more little factoid about me.
Fascinating, I know.
Living the life of an avid paper crafter is just one surprise after another I tell ya... LOL!
Stay cool my paper peeps! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill
paper- Fancy Pants (black dot), My Mind's Eye (moon) and a bunch of random ones on her that I can't remember.
stamps- Heidi Grace (sentiment) October Afternoon (bat)
Memento tuxedo black ink
Making Memories ribbon
