1 year birthday blog-hop at Phindy`s Place

Hey Sweet Crafters!

I have a little announcement for you. Have you guessed allready? No? Well... as you may have understood by the headline, i have been asked by Phindy and Anne at Phindy`s Place to join their little family as a DT member. And of course i just had to say yes!!! It is such an honour to be asked. This week we are having a bloghop to celebrate our first birthday so here are some words from Phindy:

Welcome to the Phindy's Place Challenge Birthday Bloghop! It is one whole year since we began posting challenges on the blog, I can't believe a year has gone so fast!
Our challenge this week is paper piecing and the usual prizes are up for grabs,
however we aren't posting the DT's cards on the challenge blog, we would love you to play along for a blog hop and collect a word from each posting. When you've got the full sentence, please post it in the comments on the challenge blog (which will be hidden until the hop is over!) and you could win a $10 Voucher to use at Phindy's Place.
You aren't required to leave comments at each blog, but we'd love it if you do
leave some love for the DT! Blog Hop is open until midnight (GMT) 28 April.
So this week, you have THREE chances to win: the blog hop, the random winner of the challenge and the pick of the week. So what are you waiting for?

This is the first time ever i have made a card with paper-piecing, and i understand that i did go about it the totally wrong way, lol. But i finished my card after 4 hours and a lot of cursing, lol. So here it is:

I used papers from Tim Holtz` Vintage Shabby Collection and embellies from my own stash.

If you've arrived from our lovely and talented Lynda, you're on the right track! If not, you need to start at the Phindy`s Place, Challenge blog. Click HERE to go to the start! Well i am the last one in line for this hop, so now you have to hop back to the challenge blog to post your sentence in the commenting section. Hope you have had a wonderful time with us and left the girlz some lovely comments too. I know they would looove to get some sugar. At least i would, lol. Good luck!

My word for the hop is: MORE
