Chairs to you - again!

Hello and thanks for stopping by today!

Cupcake Craft Challenge blog is looking for "something that begins with C" for this week's challenge. Well, if I'm not mistaken, "chair" definitely fits for this one and not only do I have two chair images, but a "chair" sentiment as well!

I just can't get enough of the current CTMH stamp of the month - Chairs to you! I'll be honest, when I first saw it I thought, hmmm can't see using this too much, but I've had so much fun just playing around and paper piecing this particular chair that I can't seem to put this stamp set away!

Because I paper pieced the chair, this card also fits into the challenge at Wee Memories this week - to use paper piecing!

The papers on this card are from the current promo from CTMH for National Scrapbooking Month. I used my edge distresser to give it a bit of a shabby look - it needed something, then I added the stitching. One of my many mottos - if in doubt, add stitching - usually can't go wrong.

And here is the inside.....when I stitch directly onto the card, I always cover up the stitching with paper on the backside. The script you see there is part of the design of the paper which I love!

Hope you are having a great week - now for the downward slide to the weekend!
