Paper Piecing Challenge

Those Who Served comment

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

Before I get started on our holiday festivities, I'd like to share a card with you that I made for the Paper Piecing challenge over at Creative Creations Challenge Blog in which Sassy Studio Designs is the sponsor!  These Sassy images are just perfect for paper piecing and I had a great time with this card creation.

 The image I've used today is "Katniss Girl of Fire Sassy" and she's all dressed and ready for a very fancy birthday garden party!  Speaking of garden parties ... I'd better get my potato salad made!  Have a fabulous weekend and God Bless America!!
