Umbrella Card

Hello all of you ladies out there. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend, and got lots of creative things done. I did!! I finished 19 recipe cards for my RSA swap, created a card for Stamp 'n Stuff and did a lovely scrapbook page of my gorgeous guys. I think I am going to also feature some scrapbook pages in the future. So look out for that.

Anyway, the card I created this weekend was my first attempt at paper piecing, and I must admit I really enjoyed it. It was a pretty straight forward project for me to start with, but at least I now have got the idea!

The stamp I used is by Stamp 'n Stuff and is No. 160J and you will find it under the General category and it is only R18.00. This is a simple but very versatile stamp, and I look forward to using it in lots of different ways.
