Paper Piercing

Afternoon one and all!
I had a wonderful day with my Aunt yesterday.  We started off in Stirling as she wanted a bit of food shopping in M&S then went along to Doune Antique Centre for lunch, yummy.  We had a wee look around the antique centre and spent a heap of cash ... in our dreams only!

My daughter and granddaughter are away to Glasgow for the day with their friends and I've just had a text from them ... it's snowing.  It's very cold here but at least the sun is shining.  Not to worry, it doesn't snow in the shopping centre.

Mr C is away out with the dog so I thought, as I've been good this morning and have done all my housework and washing, I could have a play in the craftroom.  I love the Less is More challenge on Saturday so here's my creation for it.  I nearly made a faux pas with this card ... again!  I read what I want to, not what I actually see so I though on first glance it said paper PIECING.  Thankfully, through experience, I read it twice and saw it was pieRcing.

This is lovely Anne, such a pretty image - I did the same as you and read the challenge as Paper Piecing when I first looked!

This is lovely Anne - love those little flowers. As I saw the post title and was waiting for the page to load I was thinking 'why do I never think to try paper piecing when I make a card'. Thought the flowers were going to be the paper pieced bit. So it's not just you who sees the first and last letter and fills in the middle yourself.

I love paper piercing Anne and this is just gorgeous. I broke my wee pokey tool that I have had for years and am now on the hunt for one. Lots about but not like the metal one I had!
