It's All About The Hat

Hi Folks
Quick post from me this morning before I head out to work.  Looking forward to getting some crafting done this weekend as got nothing else planned.

I have made a start on my christmas cards as I have got quite a lot to make.  I saw this stamp a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with it.  It is a woodware stamp and so cute.

For my first version of the card I stamped the image and then coloured it in using promarkers.  I added some stickles to his hat and some glossy accents to his nose and the holly at the bottom.  The sentiment came with the stamp set and I did some doodling around the edge before matting onto red card.  Some liquid pearls around the image finished it off nicely.

This second one is the same design but I added some paperpiecing to his hat. Really enjoyed the paperpiecing and I have lots more bits so can make quite a few of these.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
