Less is More week 73 Recipe

Hi everyone, well I'm back for 3 days then we're off to Portsmouth again on Friday :)  Charlie is thriving and having found his voice he gurgles and squeals and has us in fits of laughter!
The LIM challenge this week is PAPER PIECING and I have chosen a Darkroom Door stamp for my image.




The image is stamped in black Memento three times, once on the base card and then on brown Anna Griffin and flowered paper from my stash. I paper pieced the jacket and the basket of flowers. Also the stamp in the corner.

Thanks for taking the time to visit, I love to read your thoughts on my cards:)

Techniques seem to come around in phases and paper piecing seems to be popping up at the moment. I like what you've done with it for this LIM card. Have a good weekend with charlie.

Fabulous job with your paper piecing, Val. Such a lovely stamp, too. I love his tan jacket.
It's lovely that you're able to spend so much time with little Charlie. Such special times, too, when they're starting to develop their own little personality. Have a lovely time xx

Great card Val - like the fact you've chosen a male theme for the paper piecing. The two rounded corners are really effective.
