Thank You Card Using Paper Piecing With CTMH Chantilly Paper

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #51 - Paper Piecing.

Hi to everyone!  I hope you are keeping warm.  There is some nasty weather out there this week and many people have had huge snow storms.  Stay safe and keep warm.  Maybe you can miss work and do some much needed crafting.  :)
My mom and I spent an entire day at Disney last Friday.  I pushed her around for about 9 hrs in a wheelchair and found I had more muscles than I was aware of having.  LOL.  We had a great time and rode a lot of kids rides.  She has a heart condition; so we couldn't ride anything too exciting.  LOL!!  This is the first time I have seen the parade at the end of the evening and it was really good.  It was a very busy day!!
This is another exciting week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #51 - Paper Piecing.  This weeks sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. They have such wonderful digital stamps.  I hope you will try this challenge; even if you have never done it before. 

We are so excited to have two Guest Designers this week.  The first GDT is Trudy Thomas and the second GDT is Dayan Marin.  Please click their name to see their blog and beautiful creations.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer; please put GDT behind your name with your entry.  Good luck to everyone and keep trying if you aren't selected the first time. 
This is my first time to do paper piecing and it was a major challenge for someone who has trouble cutting things out by hand.  If I could have used my Cricut; it would have been easier for me.  LOL!!  I chose Bugaboo Flower Pot 1 for my image.  I used the new CTMH Chantilly paper packet.
