Oh Christmas Tree

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #32 - Paper Piecing

Tracy is our crafty hostess with the mostest this week for the Sassy Cheryl's blog challenge. She would like us to do some paper piecing. I am kinda new to paper piecing but I absolutely love it! I chose two images to work with this week; "Blanket Santa" & "Primitive Tree". This cute little Santa was screaming at me! His jammies and blankie are perfect for paper piecing. I had to give him some old fashioned jammies and a patchwork quilt. This card ended up "slightly" bigger than I had planned so I may just keep it for a Christmas decoration. Might cost a small fortune to mail it. Lol My hubby insisted I put another row of trees along the top, which I have to admit looks better. Love you honey!
Cheryl has the cutest Holiday images in her shop. It's never too early to start on those Christmas cards!
