Sweet Christmas

 Happy Friday (and Happy Thanksgiving a day late!) everyone.  I hope you had a wonderful time yesterday with family and friends and of course all the yummy food!  It's time for another challenge over on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog.  The challenge is: "To Die For" (meaning use lots of dies) and the sponsor is Fred She Said.  I'm not sure exactly what the prize will be, but I know it will include some of their adorable images.
I used the image called "Winter Emma Chickadee".  Isn't she so cute?!  I don't do a lot of this, but I thought this was the perfect image to do some paper piecing.  I pieced her scarf and mittens, coat and dress, tried to add some flocking to the fur parts of the coat, colored her face with colored pencils and the rest with markers.  I added a bit of gold glitter to her hair barrette and the punched snowflakes.  Hope on over to the CSAYL blog and check out the projects by the rest of the Design Team and then play along.  I love all the inspiration I get from visiting all of you.
