Mammoth Card Making Session

I have re found my love for card making this week. I like to stamp out some images and just colour them in and cut them out. I will then make them up into card toppers and keep them in a box until I need a card. It makes it so much quicker when I suddenly realise I need to get something in the post. I recently posted that I needed to make some more cards for the boys at work, so a flurry of creativity ensued in my craft room. This resulted in apile of around 20 cards, plenty of posts will follow.
I also think I need to add some of my cards to the challenges that go on and I look through regularly, I haven't entered anything for quite a while now. Over on the Allsorts challenge blog this week the challenge is about paper piecing. It so happens that this week I had made a couple of cards using this technique.I paper pieced the van on this card.
This is one of my favourite Molly Bloom stamps, its perfect for men's cards. I've teamed it up with two ranges of papers from Craftwork Cards, Anglomania and Shabby Vintage. I so hope they bring Anglomania back, it is one of my all time favourites and I'm sure will be a hit with all of the celebrations this year.

A really super card Kathy and great way us using Molly's camper, never thought of paper piecing it, but it looks to work beautifully.

Thanks so much for joining in my Paper Piecing theme at Allsorts this week, good luck and hope to see you again.

Great card Kathy, I wish I could get my cardmaking mojo back, it comes in fits and starts, have done some new layouts and made some really, really easy cards for work but that's about it, oh and almost completed the match box for the Scrapstars challenge.
