A Gift For You

Well, it's Friday again!  Can you believe it?  That means it's time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long: Anything Goes!  Yep, we're taking it easy on you again this week. : )  Our sponsor is QKR Stampede and the winner will get to pick out some of their super cute images.
Here is my card using "Reindeer Gift".  He's pretty cute, huh?
I did some reverse paper piecing on this one.  Reverse because using digital images are still so much effort for me and I never think about what I want to do with them until I'm already doing it.  So, in order to actually paper piece this, I would have had to go back to my computer and print out another image, and it really wouldn't have been such a big deal, really, but you know . . .  So, instead I used my craft knife to (very carefully)cut inside the package lines and removed it.  Then I adhered the piece of the dotted paper to the backside of my image and voila!  Reverse paper piecing.  I'm all about making things more difficult than they really need to be. : )
Now, hop on over to the CSAYL blog and see the full details and all the other projects from the DT.  Then, get inky and play along.
