mama elephant and me: paper piecing and thank you

Welcome to the September challenge for Mama Elephant and Me!  This month we're combining one of my favorite techniques with my favorite kind of card to make...

For my card, I used the Geotagged set and combined pretty paper to piece together the luggage trio.

Call me crazy, but I find paper piecing to be oddly relaxing.

I finished off my card with a paper pieced teddy bear from Nursery Deco and the sentiment from Around We Go.

This card will be sent to my host from my recent trip to Montreal.  She made me feel right at home during my trip, even putting a stuffed animal hedge hog on my bed.  (I didn't have a hedge hog stamp, so thought the teddy bear would do just fine).  Merci to my host!

Hope you can play along with us!  Here are the rules for joining the party:
