which in turn lead me to the delightful school of fish, a free digi, at The Alley Way Stamps(Yes, I know, 'simple is better,', but.I wanted to challenge myself; plus, I have new scissors - finally!! Proper paper-piecing designed, sharp & pointy, Honey Bee cutting scissors. Yayyyy...)
After a whole bunch of image twisting and turning, printer figuring, paper choosing (the pattern reminded me of fish scales), deciding who to "pop" up (the three 'bigger' guys), 'snipping and sticking', my little paper-pieced "Keep Swimming" card came to be.
As a novice card-maker, I found this a great learning experience. The best part: paper-piecing is really quite fun (and theraputic!).
Thank you for stopping by!! Darn, I missed the deadline for entering...but that's okay. There's always a next time!
