I'm Guest Designing for Lawnscaping today :):)!!

Hi guys! Thanks for stopping by, I'm so very happy to be creating a special project for the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog today! As you guys know, Lawnscaping is truly near & dear to my heart and has been since it's inception! Anything involving Lawn Fawn - I'm there!!!

This particular challenge is so exciting for me personally, because the theme is Patterned Paper!!!!! Woot-Woot!! I love patterned paper - especially because I love paper piecing in every way. For me it's very therapeutic! All that precise cutting is good for the soul ;). Here is a looksie at my card: Usually, when I make a card using paper piecing, I use patterned paper, but today, I decided to stamp all of my images (all from Lawn Fawn's AMAZING Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set) onto Copic coloring paper and color - them paper piece them onto my card. I popped up one of the images to emphasise the sentiment:

The few pieces of patterned paper that I did use (for the background/sky & grassy hills) came from Lawn Fawn's 6x6 Bright Side Petite Paper Pad. Here is a look at all the goodies that I used:

The sentiment was the 1st thing I came up with - it inspired the entire card. One of the things I LOVE about Lawn Fawn is their ABC sets. This particular set is "Jessie's ABCs" - a personal fave of mine! I love it that I can use these ABC sets to create any punny sentiment that I like! I do love a good pun!

On the inside I stamped a simple "Hi" ;). Just a fun card for a friend! Thanks for stopping in & a BIG THANKS YOU to all the wonderful gals at Lawnscaping for inviting me to guest DT with them!!
