It's Finally Friday!

So I have had this card ready for the Friday technique for two weeks now. I keep bumping it for other techniques. This week is no different. At 5 o'clock tonight I fully intended to use it. At about that time I arrived at my friend Jenn's for some chatting and stamping. I sat down to make a card for my friend who is almost to her due date and feeling quite miserable. I wanted to put a smile on her face. So I went to Jenn's stamp stuff (since mine is all packed you know) and found her How Swell set from TAC. I sat down and Jenn suggested that I use paper piecing on the card. So I did! I loved how it turned out so much that I decided my poor little card that I made two weeks ago would be bumped again. Why? Because I didn't want to wait to share this oh so cute card with you!

Cute huh?! O.k. so even if you don't like it, pretend you do because I very rarely like my cards this much and I need an ego boost. *wink* It looks way cuter in person too. So anyhow, to make this oh so cute card (not to mention this is how you can paper piece yourself) all I did was stamp my lady onto normal white cardstock. Then I stamped her again onto the flowered patterned paper. Next I cut out the shirt of the lady from the patterned paper and I pieced it onto my cardstocked image. And voila! A paper pieced pregnant lady! I then finished my card by coloring using Prisma color pencils, green mat stack CS, green gingham ribbon, the sentiment and then I added a little bling by using stickles on the center of the flower on her hat, and on the flower on her purse.

I hope she likes it!

Check back in a couple of days for a card I did for my DH. And no, it doesn't have an Elephant! LOL
