Sorry I've Been...
Husband (as he walks past): Hmrfphh...
Me (as I work photograph the card): Excuse me?
Husband (pointing to the card): Is that for me?
Me (with a puzzled look): What? No. I never give you cards.
Husband (looking smug): Well, it should be for me, Crabby.
Me (looking irritated): Oh, go away.
I'm pleased to bring back a Carbon Copied post after having taken a week off. This time Chari, from Little Miss Littleness is joining me. (Wow, talk about the talent that girl has!) It's a small world, turns out that Chari and I went to the same college! Go Wolfpack! So fun to make connections in the blogging world. Chari is part of the Lawn Fawn Design Team and her cards are always so amazing, fun and playful!
We are teaming up to participate in the current Lawnscaping Challenge: Paper Piecing! Both of us are showcasing the cute Lawn Fawn set, Critters in the Sea. I paper pieced the little crabs from the set with some scrap misted paper for the shells and red patterned paper for the bodies. They are holding a customized paper pieced banner. I knew I wanted to use that cute little crab in the set as it hadn't seen ink yet, so I came up with a pun and just went with it. The crab on the right was reversed stamped, I think that is called.
Please hop on over to Chari's blog if you haven't done so, I know she is going to have something out of this world. Check out this card she posted just yesterday-goodness, the idea alone is fantastic not to mention the skills and techniques represented in the card!
