I'll admit it I'm addicted to sketches so today I cruised around looking for sketches that caught my eye. I found a few I hope to have time to play around with but when I saw the sketch over at The sweet stop and an idea instantly popped into my head and I just had to stop cruising sketch blogs so I could get my idea on paper.

Here's what I came up with:

Each piece was cut out with my Gazelle using paper piecing files from Kadoodle Bug Designs  This is actually an 8 x 10 piece of paper that will be framed. My kids isn't old enough to play baseball yet but my sister's kids all play baseball so I'll be making 3 of these cuties, minus the baseball player, for them to frame and hang in their room. 

here's the sketch I used

hello friend

I never have been a fairy person but I just love all the paper piecing Birthstone Flower Fairies files that  KaDoodle Bug Designs has came out.  

I made the card based on the sketch over at nutcrafters

and here is my take on the sketch

halfway through piecing this precious fairy together I was doubting my sanity but the end result made the time spent on the card worth it.

Supplies used:
     April Flower Fairy paper piecing  from KaDoodle Bug Designs
     3-D butterfly paper piecing file from KaDoodle Bug Designs
     Embossing folder from Cuttlebug
     scallop border punch from EK

     Sweet buttons embosslits from SU!
     paper is from The Angel Company and from my stash
     stamp is from The Angel Company

May is a busy card month. Not only do I need 2 cards for mother's day but my mother in law, my dad and my mom all have birthdays in the first half of May.

panda birthday

This sweet image is made from paper piecing files from KaDoodle Bug Designs For this card I used 3 different files. The Bear is from Going Gumballs over you. The flowers are from Hula Bear and the Cupcake is from Good Luck bears.
The sketch I used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday
You can't tell in the picture but the dark pink rectangle has flowers stamped in Versamark and dusted with Moon glow. Very pretty in real life.
The blue patterned paper is from The Angel Company and the rest are from my stash.
