Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Hi Everyone....well I finally finished my card for The Next Level Challenge- however, I am late! It seems I only have been able to get into my scraproom on Sundays lately. I am going to post my card anyway because it was so fun to make. The challenge this week was to make a stair-step card- this took me forever!

This card has a couple of firsts for me...it's my 1st stair-step card, the first time I have ever done paper piecing and the first time I've used my Magnolia General Store stamp! I love this stamp but it took forever to color!



















I am quite pleased with the outcome being a first time and all, lol. Edwin's little plaid shirt is paper pieced- a first for me! Well that is it for me now. I am off to try some more last minute challenges!
