Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our April challenge hostess Kathy Bradley, continues to bring us a fun challenge.

This week Kathy has a recipe challenge for us …. Recipe: (In addition to your card base) use 2 designer papers, 1 circle, 1 square and whatever else your heart desires!

For my card today I am playing with a new stamp I purchased at a recent craft show … this is “What a Sweetheart” by Little Darlings … loving these images.

I paper pieced the girls hat and dress, but it is the same designer paper that I used as the base … so I am hoping that still counts as only 2 designer papers … it is only two I used Winking smile.

The circle of course is the one my main image is in. Big Ooops …. I just noticed as I was writing up my blog post today that it says in addition to your card base. So I guess I have messed up this challenge as I used my card base as the square needed for this.


Here is the inside of my card, the sentiment on the inside is from the new MFT Stamps Lisa Johnson Designs Sweet Roses stamp set. Love the sentiments included in this set.

  1. I've just got that paper and am so looking forward to using it. For sure the piecing still counts as just two papers! In my book your square panel on the front is a square, too - I don't hear any buzzer this morning.
