Well, here I sit...............9 pm. Not 1 am like this morning when I could not sleep to save my life!! Perhaps that will happen again tonight, who knows. Maybe I'll just go into labour?!! Who the heck knows anymore!!

Anyways, it's 9 pm & I have a new post for ya! This is a gate fold card for Dutch Dare Challenge #72. I absolutely love gate fold cards, but don't make too many, unfortunately. So when these challenges present themselves, I must take advantage!

The stamp set I used is from CTMH called Makin' Waves & the reason I chose this stamp set is so that I could easily paper piece it together! This is my first attempt at Paper Piecing & I did so in an attempt to keep up with the Cards for Men Challenge blog. In fact, you wanna hear something funny.............I am so unfamiliar with this technique that I was actually referring to it as Paper Piercing.........up until I re-looked at the Challenge blog moments ago! What a goof ball I am!!
So as I said, never done this before................can you tell by the rough edges of my ducky!! Gawd!! How awful! O, well, how else am I going to learn right!?!?!?

I was thinking of making this as invitations for my daughter's b-day coming up in April, as she really wants to go to the local hotel & swim in the pool (of course there will only be like 4 people invited so don't go thinking I am whipping up 12 of these puppies.....I don't think so- LOL). We'll see what her thoughts are!
Thanks for all the kind comments on previous cards especially on Prairie Fairy's b-day card. And thanks to those of you who also wished her best wishes. I know she really appreciates it!!

Great paper piecing Corry. Don't suppose you'll get so much time when baby comes along. This was a new technique for me too.

Thanks for joining us over at Cards for Men and good luck with the challenge.
