Breaking Out My Scissors!

Good Morning! Another week has flown bye and here in central Alberta it appears that winter truly is upon us...LOL. I was kind of wishing it would hold off just a little longer so here is to making the best of it with a snowman or snow angel or shoveling :).

We are onto a new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks and it is my lucky week to challenge everyone. If you haven't guessed it by my title here it goes

cutting other pieces of paper to fill in spots on your stamp.

My daughter Kaitlyn and I made cards together with the same image. I was teaching her how to paper piece. She was having fun but well she had to take a break, she did awesome though and will probably finish her card this weekend. If you look closely there was more than one pattern paper used...LOL. One of my other Crafty Chicks challenged me to use #19 sketch from Deconstructing Jen. So Leanne, I met your challenge, now I will have to think of one for you...LOL. Thanks girlie :)

I hope you really enjoy this card. It was fun to make and I paper pieced her hat, collar of her jacket, mitts and boots. It was tons of fun.

Leanne, Lori and Melissa have made wonderful cards this week (as with every week). Be sure to stop bye there blogs and share some love. Also check out our Guest Designer: Victoria, she is going to be joining us for the month of November. Pop on over to see her inspiring card she made for her first challenge with us.

We had an awesome week last week, so I am hoping we can keep it going! I have so enjoy checking out all of the beautiful blogs and creations that you share with us each week. Please come and join us for a week of fun at 4 Crafty Chicks.
