CPS 191 x 2



Did you see the CPS sketch this week? Yikes! What a challenge! First, I made this cute little 3x3 card using a new stamp set I got from Prima. I thought the circles looked just like peppermint candies, to I used Stickles to color them in. The "wrappers" are bits of organdy ribbon from my stash. The papers are scraps! The sentiment is from the Pure Innocence set I used in the next card.



This time, I paper pieced the hat and jacket with some MME paper that I also used as the side shapes. This was such a tricky sketch, I wasn't sure how to work with it. But I think this card came out VERY cute and I love it! The base is Cherry Cobbler (my last piece - boo hoo!). I love that new color, and am no out of red card stock. How can that be? Cindy, I'll be emailing you again soon! Good thing my Christmas cards are all completed for this year.

Can you believe it's November already? I cannot. I need to get the Christmas shopping done! Have a good day and thanks for looking!
