Lawnscaping Challenge - Paper Piecing - Thank You Family!

Time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!

This time the challenge is called Paper Piecing, which is when you cut out a stamped image or parts of a stamped image from different colored payer and layer them. It's a fun effect and Lawn Fawn stamps work really well.

I created the card for the Johnson Family who just had us over to their house for dinner. It was a great time with great people - and Carolyn was so sweet to make a special low fat, low carb dinner since she knows I am on Weight Watchers. It was so sweet of her to go that extra mile to make sure I could eat with everyone and still feel like I am doing the diet. She's a great gal!

We took their son Calvin a cash box with play money, coins and a cash machine which he really seemed to enjoy. We also took the dog a rawhide and I brought a low fat version of Funfetti Cake Dip with animal crackers for dessert. It went over very well! I also introduced everyone to Pintrest, my new obsession and Chuck also installed the birthday light timer, which I know they will love having!

Overall, great time with great friends! And I hope they like this thank you card!

I used the Critters in the Forrest stamp set for the animals and the Jessie's ABCs for the alpha.

Let me know what you think!

PS - these pictures were taken with my new iPhone 4S camera. Love that thing!!
