New Challenge and GDT Call at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good morning Friends! I can't believe it is May already!  This year is just flying by!  Both kids are almost finished with class for the year...Isaac will be home for the summer in just about a week and Lacie will graduate from college on the 18th!  Wow! I guess I better get busy with those party plans!!!

 Today starts are new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!  Leanne is our wonderful hostess this week and she has issued the challenge to do Paper Piecing.  Let me tell you, It took me a few tries to get this one right!  But, in the end, I love the result!  For my card I used an image from Sassy Studio's called Bubble Gum Sassy. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir pens and used some pattern paper to cut her top and jeans. I kept the design pretty simple as I printed the image so large (to make cutting easier!) But I love the green and blue color combo! I added a few pink gems that reminded me of a big bubble...

Here is a close up of this beautiful image:

So, what are you waiting for?  Hop over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your paper piecing project today!  We are also having a Guest Design Team Call this month.  See the blog for details. 
 Can't wait to see what you create so Let's Get Crafty!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again soon!
