Dotty's Christmas:

Good morning - here we are at Friday, sweet Friday.  I don't have too much planned this weekend, just puttering around in the craftroom hopefully.

I tried really hard to make a boy and girl version of my Christmas card.  I should have known I couldn't complete two cards in one sitting.  Heck, I was lucky I complete this one!  This was a three hour kind of card, and I even paper pieced her little outfit to save time!

Can you believe Christmas is less than two months away.  *Squeals*

I made Dotty a sweet little star outfit.  She's just waiting for Santa to come down the chimney:

I picked up these new MME Christmas papers - so pretty!  I am thinking of going back and buying more!

And I added a couple of matching flags - you know me:  Miss matchy-matchy!
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME papers, Recollections and Bazzill cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Gelly Roll white pen, Craftsmart Chocolate and Gold inks, Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink, random flowers (received as a gift), Recollections gems, Wilton doily.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Making Memories edge ripper, C.C. Designs Leafy Branch cutters.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges - sketch and flags/banner, Cupcake Crafts - paper piecing, Polka Doodles - Christmas and kraft, Brown Sugar - anything goes, Crafty Ribbons - Christmas, Delightful Challenges - stitching.

Don't forget, it's StampFairy's new release Friday - meet Barry Circles:

Have a super wonderful Friday - thanks for the visit!
