Shopping Our Stash #146 - Pieces of April

Happy Happy Tuesday!!! Here's hoping the weather is warming up where you are, here in Southern Ontario...not so much...but I am ever hopeful!!  This week's Shopping Our Stash challenge is "Pieces of April" we want to see you break out your mad paper piecing skills for this one.

I don't do paper piecing nearly as much as I's soooooooo much fun and a super good way to use up scraps in the craft room! All the paper on this card are miscellaneous scraps that I have been hoarding for some reason (I knew I would use them eventually!!!) and the clouds were a gift from my crafty friend Jessi.

Kraft, pink, white & yellow cardstock scraps from my stash
Cloud cutouts from Jessi
Birthday Buddies stamp set (Paper Smooches)
Weather Report stamp set (Technique Tuesday)
Black Stazon ink
Tumbled Glass distress stain (Tim Holtz)
Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection (Tim Holtz)
Design paper scraps for the sun, hat, banner and groundhog (SU)
Transparent blue button

Visit the Shopping Our Stash blog to upload your project and be sure to visit my SOS teammies to show them some crafty love!!
