YNS Too Cute To Spook Blog Hop and Challenge #51 Paper Piecing

Good morning peeps.  Are you guys ready for a hop?  I hope you arrived here from Kerri's blog.  If not start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing.  Today YNS is releasing the September images and OMG...they are too cute.  Plus today is also challenge day so get your paper piecing tools together.  To start, this darling image is called Ellie Loves Sunflowers.  I think she is precious.  I love her!!  I paper pieced her skirt and colored her with Copic makers.  She's available in the store starting today.   But wait that's not it.  I thought I would try out the "color with no lines" technique and made this card with Ellie.  Oh I have to say I might be on to something.  This technique is a bit challenging but I LOVE the results.  It gives the image such a soft look. 
But wait there's more.  I just couldn't stop with showing you one stamp so I made a gift card holder with the new Celebrate the Journey image.  He's soooo cute!  I put my son's debit card in the slot as I added some cash to it for an upcoming field trip.  Once again this stamp is available starting today.

Now for the fun part.  The hop will run from TODAY until MIDNIGHT EST Saturday September 17th.  Karen is throwing in an AWESOME store promotion for you.  She's offering special stamp bundles plus a free stamp (her choice) for every $30 spent. So if you spend $30, you'll get 1 free stamp, spend $60 get two free stamps, etc.  What a deal!!!  Thanks Karen so being so generous.

Don't forget that this is a challenge as well.  So make sure you participate and link your card to the YNS blog. Check out the hop prize.  Karen you have out did yourself this time. You can enter for any of our blogs.  Now I'm sending you over to Jenny's blog.
