Christmas is coming!!

Every year I plan to start my Christmas cards earlier but am lucky that I am kept busy until it gets almost too late!

I haven't entirely caught up but allowed myself a small play this weekend as I've got a few stamps I have been itching to play with for ages.

Following on from yesterdays post this is another stamp from Woodware called 'Huge Santa'.
I have paper pieced all the letters, colouring with copics where they overlap (a finishing touch stolen from Francoise Read).

I have also stamped and cut out the hat, coloured with copics, added fun flock to the edge and finished with a pom pom.

I haven't made this image in to a card yet but have posted this while I mull it over!

Another tempting one for Val over at Aquarius blog who I might have encouraged to start a Woodware stash this weekend!


  1. Lovely card Jill and these stamps are gorgeous just love the Christmas hat...


  2. Not only Val..........I'm waiting on two more coming my way!!! lol This is great with the paper piecing and a good tip to colour with Copics etc where the pieces overlap. Love the pompom.
