Happy Card Making Day!

I think I can…I think I can… It really does seem like I should have been able to make more cards than this so far, but I’m counting each blog post as a “thing” done too. So that makes me feel a little better. The Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge is Paper Piecing. I love paper piecing, and this might be the most intricate one that I’ve done yet.

There are 3 colors of paper on the paper pieced sunflower from the Flourishes Sunflowers stamp set.

Shhhhhh!!!! Don’t tell my guy!

Don’t worry he already knows. One of my friends calls Tim Holtz my Very Significant Other. 🙂 I like the products he puts out and the ease with which he makes his projects. And he’s SO nice. I was lucky enough to meet and talk with him and Mario for a while one day and they were both such wonderful people! Ok…enough Tim (never enough!), on to the task at hand.

Flourishes has a Timeless Tuesday challenge and this week you need to use 2 types of ribbon or twine. I have several of their sets, but I really like their Waterlilies Set (SS064). So I stamped out the two waterlilies and watercolored them using my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

LOVE those markers!
