Christmassy paper piecing

Hello Everyone,

Hope that you're having a fabulous weekend! Anyone following the current football craze? :o) The last match is tonight... what will we do with our free afternoons/evenings once it all finishes?! I guess I can finally go back to crafting then, LOL! More time will be available, now I just need to find my mojo back! My head is full of ideas, but I somehow cannot make myself go to my craftroom and start creating... 

Today I am sharing a Christmas card with you... Yup, that's another one this year already... Maybe one day I will finally live up to my personal challenge of making at least one Christmas card every month! 

I used a Lili of the Valley stamp for this one... It's more of a "love-themed" stamp really, but with a few colour tweaks I think it's perfect for Christmas, too! This one could be great for the first Christmas of a newlywed couple, don't you think?! 
For some silly reason I decided to paper-piece the clothes... My world, that was some fiddly and fussy task! My fingers are still covered in glue ;-) But I think it was worth it, have a look:

 This bit of red stickles makes the tree very Christmassy! :o)

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Inky Chicks - Christmas in July
Love to create - Fussy and fancy
QKR Stampede - Paper Piecing

Hope you like the card and got a bit of inspiration in terms of trying to "stretch" your stamps a bit... What is a love-themed stamp doesn't need to be used for Valentine's/Weddings/Anniversaries only! 

Now, who are you supporting tonight...? ;-)
