Sending Well Wishes

Happy First Day of Autumn! When I saw that the most recent challenge over at Embellish Magazine involved paper piecing I was so excited!! As you all know, it's one of my favorite techniques, and I use it all the time! So, I combined the colors & technique from the Embellish Challenge:

And the Bonus Sketch (by Kelly Marie) at 2 Sketches 4 You:


And here's what I came up with:

The image is "Better Get Better" from the Pure Innocence line at My Favorite Things. I love this little cutie! I paper pieced her dress, her stockings, and the heart in her hair with "Old World Cabbage Stew Paper" from Jillibean Soup. I also paper pieced her little teddy bear with a scrap of kraft cardstock that I had in my stash.

The strip at the top is washi tape that I purchased from The Tinted Mint. Love this stuff! It's so much fun to incorporate into projects!

I used a white gel pen to color in the bandages on the teddy bear. And the buttons are from Basic Grey. I was originally just going to use one (at the top), but then I couldn't resist putting those teeny tiny ones in the corners. HA!

I hope you are having a wonderful start to the Autumn season! And I hope you have a chance to get outside and enjoy all of the beauty this season has to offer! I went hiking with my neighbor this morning and it was fabulous! An absolute carnival for the senses! Nature is so remarkable!

Thanks for stopping by today!
