Thought of you today...


Today I'm playing along in the TGF Farm Fresh Friday challenge, and this week it is to do a bit of paper piecing on your card. I wanted to cross another stamp off my 'waiting to be inked' list and I found Sitting Wonderful Anya who has been neglected for quite some time. Which is a shame since she is pretty darn cute with her sassy short hair and that fabulous bow. And it was actually that bow that sold me on her for this challenge because I thought it would look great with a bit of pattern to it. It wasn't until I was stamping Anya up that and realized she needed her chair and that I could also have fun paper piecing it as well. 
I ended up using some Lily Bee papers again because they have teeny tiny repetitive prints that are fantastic for piecing. I actually kind of want an over-stuffed grey floral chair now, LOL! 

Anywho, the weather here has turned a bit stormy and cool so I should go find something warm to face the day in.

So sweet, just precious. I love the pieced chair and the bow. The choice of papers is awesome. I love the background choice of papers too. Wonderful card.
The west side of the mountains in WA is cold and gray too. We are in the mid 40's this morning. But it's so beautiful and green. Hugs
