RING IN THE NEW YEAR - Paper Piecing Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Ring in the New Year" Blog Hop, sponsored by our own Nikki from Paper Piecings By Nikki.  If you arrived here from the multi-talented and amazing Mandy then you are in the right spot.  If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, you can start at Nikki's blog.

For my project today, I made a card for a dear friend who hasn't had such a great 2011.  I'm hoping that 2012 is going to be a MUCH better year...even, as the card says, if she has to put on her 'rose tinted' glasses and look at it that way!  The file I used for the amazing 'perfectly perfect' Beary Poppins is from Nikki's site.    The sentiment stamp I used is from K. Andrew Designs.  It's from a set called "Positive Thoughts" and boy is it filled with positive thoughts.  $1 of every stamp set purchased goes to charity.  This stamp set helps support the "Storefront Homeless Shelter for Children".

Now for  my project!!!  

As you can see, I had sooooo much fun decorating this little piecing - pop dotting this and stickling that --Nikki's designs are so versitile!  Kristal Andrews stamps are amazing also.  I love how clean they stamp and how crisp and clean the sentiment stamps!

I love the inside of the card - (her umbrella wouldn't fit on the front).  Here is the original Paper Piecing Design and also the Stamps Set I used.
