I hope your week went by as quickly as mine did, and that you've enjoyed a nice weekend. Unfortunately, I had to work this weekend, which left little time for fun. Boo! It's ok though, I'll make up for it next weekend. :)
Sunday brings us another Christmas Card Challenge. This weeks challenge is paper piecing. For this weeks challenge, click HERE.
I seldom paper piece anything. I found out just how bad I am at it this week too. Not sure why I had such a difficult time, but this is attempt number 3. lol I paper pieced his pants, sweater, hat and scarf. I'm happy with the results, it just took longer to finish. This image is too cute though. I should use him more often, and I love the touch of liquid applique for the hat. This card is slightly smaller than an A2 as well. I think I'm going to use it as a gift card, maybe. I've also come across some new, to me, challenges I've combined in this card.
Eat, Sleep, Stamp #138 - Sketch
Jingle Belles - Holiday Leftovers (use scraps - my card is almost entirely scraps)
Moving Along With The Times #106 - Christmas in July
Stampin With The Dragon - Christmas In July
Paper Sundaes #77 - Paper Piecing (and they just happened to be sponsored by Heather Ellis today too!)
So, how many Christmas/holiday cards do you have made this year? There are only 4 months until the holidays again. Why not get a head start on your Christmas cards? The designers have created some amazing cards for you this week. I do hope you'll check them out.
Have a great day!
