Happy Wednesday to you! Are you needing a little challenge to get you over the hump? How about this week's Paper Pretties "Paper Piercing"? That's piercing not piecing, there's an "r" in it. I'm not pointing this out because I think you may not be bright enough to spot that difference, I'm pointing it out because I always miss the "r" and make a pieced card. Don't believe me - take a look at my example, the egg shell is pieced, fortunately I saved myself by using a pierced die, the rectangles that I used to cut out the card stock the image is stamped on and the blue mat behind it are both pierced. It's a little hard to see that's why I used such a large photo.
I had a little laugh at myself, I was late to post this card and it's a good thing, because until I saw today's Paper Pretties blog I didn't know that it piercing not piecing. Maybe I should just make it a habit to pierce some part of any card I plan to enter into a challenge that I think is for "paper piecing" just in case. It couldn't hurt.
