Back to Normality at last :) - Paper Pieced Urban Stamps

Normality is beginning to return to the Larkin household and I can finally get back to blogging. I really have to say thank you to everyone for sticking around and being patient with my lack of posting while I got my arm a bit better. A huge thank you has to go out to all my wonderful customers who came to the demos and did all the work while I sat there with my arm in a sling giving out loads of instructions :) Another huge thanks goes to all my Crafty friends who worked so hard to help me have loads of kits ready so people could participate at the demos. You girls know who you are and I am forever grateful :)

Today's post is showing a couple of cards using the stamps from the Docrafts Urban Stamps. This Owl and Bird just cried out to be paper pieced (While my arm was out of action I was unable to color so this became one of my favorite techniques). I used papers from the Forever Friends Kraft Notes paper . I have to say sometimes a paper just begs to be used and used and used and this paper was the one that called me back to it time and time again (Sush, tell nobody but I bought 2 of the 12 x 12 designstaxs - well I wouldn't want to run out of it!) I just love the colors and how well it works with Kraft card, white card, colored card - well actually just everything.

My posting should be a lot more frequent from now on. Its time to charge up the camera again and start taking loads of photos so I can show you what I have been (slowly!) making over the last few months.

Happy crafting everyone :)
