Saturated canary paper piecing

Hi everyone!
I'm sorry I'm just not being much of a blogger lately, in fact I'm not doing as much crafting as I normally do at all. I'm not really happy with what I'm making and I'm not entirely sure why! 
I am doing lots of hours at work (gotta get the pennies in for xmas!) and there always seems to be so much to do around the house! Possibly I'm just being a bit dis organised and letting things get on top of me a wee bit!
Anyway I did what most crafters do in this situation, I bought a few more little digi images last night (it feels like ages since I've bought anything) so hopefully that will stir my creativity into action!
In the mean time it's challenge time again at Saturated Canary and we have a great challenge of paper piecing for you! I always think this is a fab idea as there is less colouring to do which is less time consumming lol but then there is all that fiddly cutting out to do..
So how about a spooky halloween card?! This fast food fly by new digi from Krista is just so cute and I loved using these fab echo park papers to spruce her up! I also used some Waltzing mouse stamps, a prima butterfly and flowers and jute from WOC.
I coloured the rest of her with pencils. Try not to look too close to the right hand side of her face where there is a partially stamped out bat! I was stamping the bats into the corner of the image and one still slightly inked found its way on to the image ggrrr no time to correct that though! The striped papers on her dress and hat are paper pieced and all the green bits have been coloured.
Do check out the awesome creations from the rest of the team with this great paper piecing challenge and we hope you can join us too!
Thanks for coming by my blog

A great card Rebekah, I think you are trying to do so much you haven't enough time to actually think creatively. It will come back.
