Cupcake Challenge 215 - Paper Piecing



Oh oh, it's Monday morning again and it seems only 5 minutes since I was complaining about last Monday...someone bring me Friday please and quick!

It's just as well we've got a fab new challenge over at Cupcake to cheer us up (well, me anyway). This weeks theme has been chosen by Helen and we want to see PAPER PIECING on your entries. I love a bit of paper piecing especially if it means I don't have to sit and colour in an image...although there was some colouring on this one but thankfully not too much. Pop over to the challenge blog to find last weeks winners and Cupcake Cuties plus you can check out what the rest of the Cupcakes have created for this challenge.

We have two fab sponsors for you this week...
Freckled Fawn are offering $15 Gift Card for their winner. They are also offering free shipping to Cupcake followers on any order placed before 29th October...just add code CupcakeShipping (international or domestic) at checkout.
and Paper Pretties are offering 6 digi images for their winner

I'm entering my card into the following challenges...
One Stop Craft Challenge (#201)...Anything Goes
Fussy & Fancy Friday (#74)...Anything Goes (ends 1/11/12)
Make it Monday (#112)...Anything Goes (ends 28/10/12)
