Paper-piecing Christmas

Hi all,

Well it's been a week of getting more Christmas cards made and I've even written some. Few pressies wrapped in time for my Mum's visit this week.
It was my last day at work till after Christmas so we made Christmas dinner - the learners did a fabulous job and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was also invited to the Thursday group class Christmas dinner which was lovely too.  So I've done nothing but eat this week.  My week was finished off with a lovely visit from my Mum and her husband Bob - so lovely to catch up with them. Then yesterday I got my hair done  -  very busy week..... Anyway enough chatting here's the card I made today:
I used some freebie Polkadoodle boy and gloves stamped.Paper-pieced parts of the boys clothing and the gloves with newspaper and coloured the rest with promarkers, Polkadoodle paper and sentiment.Cut a tree out of the backing paper using my Marianne designs tree die then cut a tree out of green paper and embossed with dotty cuttlebug folder. Bakers twine and card candi were used too.
