Paper Piecing at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. Just a quick scheduled post - fingers crossed Mr Blogger has published it for me :o)
Today we have a new challenge for you over at

and this time the lovely Janice has picked the theme

Here's what I did:

I decided to make a tag using some scrummy freebie papers with Papercraft Essentials (I think!!!)

And one of my favourite Tilda Christmas images - I paper pieced her dress and headband.

Ooopps - sorry about the blurred photo - taken in a rush!!!

And another - must try harder lol!!!!
Poinsettia - Spellbinders die with 1 dew drop added to the centre and the leaves given some
 Glamour Dust
I also added a few Marianne Creatables snowflakes cut up behind the Poinsettia for added interest.

I'm sure my DT buddies have created something wonderful to inspire you - but I didn't get chance to see what they had done before leaving for my jolly holibobs.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check them out :o)

I'll be back in just under a week and hope to catch up with you then.
Thanks for popping in.
Have a wonderful day.
