Paper piecing

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who visits my blog and leaves such a lovely comment! I have been so encouraged by them and I have to tell you - it really helps and lifts me up no end - I am very grateful to you all!


I love paper piecing and had the idea to make a tag with poinsettias using a leaf stamp from Hero Arts. In real life it is much darker and the flowers are red, I couldn't get a better photo though and pink poinsettias do exist!
So here is my tag:



I used dark distressing for the background and layered with a Script and Holly stamp.

I am happy to say that I am half way with my radio therapy sessions (had 17 already) and it's still looking good. I am feeling well and able to carry on with household chores etc. I am very grateful that I still have energy and praise God for the wonderful progress.

Enjoy your week!

Your tag is really gorgeous. That is so clever to make a poinsettia from the leaf stamp.
