Festive Fun...Girl in Santa Hat

Another week.  Woohoo! I have the house to myself, first time in six weeks.  :-)  Yes, my hubby has returned to work but on light duties.  I think he is happy to be out of the house but not looking forward to catching up on work.  I am looking forward to doing things at my own pace and eating when I feel like it.

This is my second card for my Card Swap over at Craftmad this month.  I have really enjoyed doing paper piecing and think I may just use my stamps a little more often.  This lovely lady was created by Ruth over at Passion for Cards.  You should pop over and see the beautiful flowers she has drawn recently.  I am also entering this card into Denise's challenge 'Lots of Paper - Patterned Paper with Dots'.  Now if you are looking for a challenge I can confidently say that Denise will have a challenge for you.  I think she now has a different challenge every day of the month and they sure get your head thinking.

Now for the card.  Well I started with the image and paper pieced her with SU Design Paper and Riding Hood Red.  I added a xmas sticker hat (Sticker Store).  Now I needed a layout so I headed over to Stamping When I Can and checked out the list of sketches she posts each day. There was one from Sketch Saturday which was perfect.

I have used a pre-scored White card for the base...then a layer of SU Design Paper, 2 strips of SU Riding Hood Red which I have stamped with little starbursts using versa mark.  Layered up the lady on SU Kiwi Kiss and added three buttons and a rub-on greeting and holly sticker.
