cruisin' by to say hi!

Happy Friday!!!!

Another busy weekend planned for me...we'll be celebrating my Momma's birthday and I'm hoping to work like crazy on some pub subs:)

Remember on Sunday when I told you that I walked away from a project because of a lack of time?  Well, I managed to incorporate it into a new challenge because the original one that I was working on has since ended.  

Introducing Cruising Chloe'ster:


Chloe has been paper pieced with 6 different patterns from the New My Minds Eye Gertie line...how can anyone resist all those fab colors?  Yup, her shoes have even been paper pieced!

I was inspired by CPS206:


This week, Card Positioning Systems is being sponsored by my buddie Sparkle of Sparkle CreationsChloe is my favorite from Sparkle's line of stamps!


I'm a big paper piecer and learned something new this week from Laurel Seabrook who is Yvonne's guest blogger.

 Can you guess what it might be?  Well, if you don't know, you'll just have to check out Laurel's challenge:)

I'm also linking up to the Moxie Fab Paper Piecing Challenge!


How's that for a multi-tasking card?

Have you been keeping up with all the festivities over at Card Patterns??!!!


You don't want to miss out on all the fun and prizes!!!!

**Just a Reminder**


Flashback Friday 8.0 is going strong....you have until next Friday to link up your first 3D project!  You have to check out all the fab linkies...so much inspiration!!!  Pop over to the Flashback Friday blog today...I randomly highlighted some of the projects that have been shared...you're going to LOVE them!

I'm so very thrilled to have Nikki Sivils as the Super Sponsor of Flashback Friday 8.0!


I'll be back tomorrow with the NEW Card Patterns sketch challenge!
