DYSU #75 - Paper Piecing

Hey everyone!

Welcome to a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! 

How many of you used to love scissors as a kid?  That was really fun, specially the confetti that results after a great cutting session.  Those are wonderful memories of great times when life was so simple.  Don’t you all agree?  Well, today is all about remembering those times because we want you to Paper Piece you card!!!  So grab your scissors, your favorite image a cup of ice tea and enjoy being a kid again. 

This week we are being joined by our Hand Picked Guest Designer Caroline Paton, from Keep it Sweet and Simple. 
Here's a little about Caroline:

I have been card making/papercrafting for about 8 years now.
When I first started, I used stickers and bought card toppers -  I even swore that I would never buy stamps
- they were way too expensive and where would I store them all!!
Well that didn't last long *snort*.
Starting my own blog was a great leap forward - it opened up a whole new world to me -
digis, Copics, dies, challenges and of course all you blogging buddies and it turned me into a 'serious' crafter.
Meaning - if anyone TOUCHES my Copics there will be a major incident!
Like everyone, I do have my tricky moments - I am 'florally' challenged and I have nightmares about distressing,
but I CAN say that
, recently, I seem to have found my 'style'.
It's only taken 4 years!!
On the personal front, I live in North Yorkshire and have been marrried for 27 years.
We have 2 gorgeous daughters -
Maria 23 and Annabel 22 - oh, and I musn't forget my best buddy
and partner in crime, 
Suzie (my Westie).
Huge thanks to the talented DYSU team for choosing me as a guest designer - it's been fun - 
and I hope you'll join in with
this week's challenge.

I'm here just for fun (per Mary Jo's kind invite), as my card was technically posted yesterday. It's my first time. What a fun looking challenge blog!
