An April showers paper-pieced card

Hi. I made this for a "Spring" challenge in a Facebook paper crafting group I belong to. I have always liked the Hambo Stamps digi, but this is the first time I paper-pieced the "umbrellas". The dp is a really pretty (and reasonably priced!) 6x6 pad from AC Moore called "Vintage Botanicals" by Love Nicole:

Fight like a girl!

I used a new Tiddly Inks digi stamp to make a card of support and encouragement for a fellow paper crafter artist who is battling breast cancer:

Celebrating with a "King Cake"!

Hello! The new challenge at Words 2 Craft By is "Celebrations" with an inspiration quote about Mardi Gras from Mark Twain. I've never been to Mardi Gras but certainly have heard and seen a lot about the festive parades and famous King Cakes. I used two Vera Lane Studio digis to create my version of a King Cake. It was fun adding lots more bling than usual to create a Mardi Gras atmosphere! I could use this for a March birthday card...
