Paper Piecing..

























 I needed a couple of baby cards to add to my stash as a few of my friends are expecting to be Grandmothers very soon!!  I decided to incorporate the cards into the Paper Piecing challenge over at A Blog Named Hero..  They are both really simple CAS cards but I think the cute elephant from the New Baby set is perfect for CAS.  Here is my blue version using two shades of gingham paper and the edge of my Pinstripe background stamp.


This is the smaller pink version, I used the heart stamp from the same New Baby set for the balloon and covered it in glitter.  The bottom is an off cut of the Tweed border stamp (I keep all my scraps lol !).

Hope your weekend is fun.
