TSG138 A dear friend

Hi there everyone... I know what you're thinking!!! I'm a slacker!!! I had high hopes for starting the new year off with a slew of blog posts and then crickets... that's all I've given you so far. Nothing but silence!! Sorry about that! Life is finally starting to slow down so I managed to nab some time at my craft desk over the weekend to have a little bit of fun with some rubber and ink! 

I've made this card for this week's challenge over at the TSG blog which is to create a card using paper piecing.  The fabulously talented Iwona aka Chupa has left the team to pursue some amazing opportunities and we're all going to miss her immensely.  I thought it was only fitting to use one of the sets that Chupa illustrated while she was at TSG and the set is called "Happy Mail".  I've watercolored the image with Tombow Markers and then have paper pieced the cutie pie's dress with DP from Happy Days Echo Park.  I've also used another fellow Trendsetter's (Karen Giron) sketch from Sweet  SundaySketch Challenge.

We'd love for you to participate with us this week!!! So head on over to the TSG blog to check out all the fantastic inspiration from the DT. 

See you tomorrow!!!

Hey Angela,
Love the adorable image and sentiment as well as the fun mix of papers. Exciting news for Chupa but so hard to lose a DT pal.

Super sweet card Angela! The polka dot dress really pops! Don't feel bad I started off the New Year with some blog crickets myself. The Holidays just got the better of me.
