Christmas Stampin' All Day Long

Happy Monday and Labor Day My Friends!!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and if you're still celebrating, I hope you're having a wonderful holiday as well. Today is Christmas Stampin' All Year Long day and wonderfully talented Debbie is our hostess with the mostest this week! The challenge for this week is to use paper piecing on our creations. This is a great technique and if you haven't tried it, you should give it a shot. If you need some inspiration for a sketch layout, Maria has drawn one up for you here.
For my card today, I used a CC Designs image from All that Scraps. I used K&Co. paper, Bo Bunny cardstock and Bazzill cardstock. I cut my image with nesties and used page pebbles and a glittery snowflake for embellies. I paper pieced her hat, coat and boots. I colored everything else with my copics. I used glitter pen on the hearts, her fluffballs on her scarf tie, the cuffs of her boots and sleeves and the ball on top of her hat. I hope you like her!



Kind of a short post today but tomorrow is my birthday and I have lots to get done. Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. Better get started on those cards!! We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to leave me a comment so I can return the favor! Don't forget to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you.
