Inspired by

Last year I tried the paper piecing/ tolling technique that Mariska and Debby both use. I really enjoyed it and decided to use it again for this gorgeous image from Wee Stamps called "Wee One".

It is time consuming but very therapeutic and it helps that Mariska puts the pieces you need to colour and cut on her blog, think the hardest part would be working those out, even though that is done for me I still sometimes put them on in the wrong order so have learnt to build it without glue first then assemble.

Wow Amanda, this really is stunning. Such a beautiful new baby card. I just hopped over to Mariska's blog to check out the paper piecing/tolling - almost had the vapours when I saw just how many little pieces you must have fiddled with. This is not a path I'll be following you down for once hun, but your resulting card is truly perfect.

Hugs, Di xx
