happy day

I again asked Mr. Random.org to help me picking my WoJ candy winner. Here is his choice:
The winner is.... 1LuvnMama!!!!!!!! Congratulations!! =) Please email me with your mailing address, I'll get the candy out to you as soon as I can!!

On to today's card. I was so excited to get my new stamps from both A Muse and Papertrey Ink last week, I had to play! Here is what I made:

It's a marriage of stamps from three different companies. I used Hero Arts' fabulous Clouds stamp for my background. The tree, hills and sentiment are from this cute set from PTI.

This adorable little bear has to be one of the cutest!! She is MB Girl Bear from A Muse. I was giggling all the time when I was coloring her! =) I paper pieced her "dress" using some PIT Green Tea Leaves scraps.

The hills are paper pieced using scraps from PTI's Pretty Pastels. I also colored a few more flowers from the Girl Bear image, cut them out and glued them to the tree. After I stamped the sentiment on my cardstock, I drew a cloud shape around it then cut out. The faux stitching is then added using this trusty white gel pen.

I am submitting this to Moxie Fab World's Picking Up the Pieces Challenge since I did a bit of paper piecing.

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a fabulous Tuesday! =)
