Printed Papers Card


MFTWSC149

Last minute entry for the MFT challenge using this great sketch. First card I've made using this darling MFT stamp set--Boy & His Dog.  If you know me, you're asking where's the dog? I simply ran out of time, but it may get added before this is mailed.  I love MME Merry Little Christmas pad I bought last year & have barely used & thought it'd be perfect to paper piece this little kid.  The solid red cardstock was a scrap--had just enough.  I'm pretty proud of myself for hand cutting the snowy hill--OK, I know, very simple--LOL! There's glitter on the hill & the pom-pom. His face is watercolored with a Gelato. I added Raindots to these beautiful tiny dimensional snowflakes.  Even though I'm slow, paper piecing this little boy was worth it & I'll probably do it again.  I've seen people mentioning Pixies Snippets Playroom, so thought I'd join in this week.  
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.  I'll catch up on commenting very soon.

  14. He's a sweetie even without his dog! I find paper piecing tedious. It takes me too long to find the right paper! But this little guy wouldn't be the same with out the patterns! Great job, Greta!
