Christmas Candles

Well it was a cold and chilly day and we even had snow here in the south of the UK yesterday. It didn't lay where I am, but it did look pretty watching the snowflakes out of the window at work. I wonder if it'll snow today too; snow makes me really feel Christmassy.

I have a christmassy card to share today. This is my Pixie Cottage DT card where there is a sketch and/or the theme of Paper Piecing to follow (I did both). It uses the new stamp called Hannah with Candle and I think this is such a lovely image. The papers I've used are DCWV The Linen Closet.I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Fairy Fun Fridays - Buttons and Bows
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas without red and green
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Speedy The Cats Challenge - Bows
Stampin' B's - Make a holiday card
StampsRUs - Holiday Cards
Sweet Stampin' - Buttons and Bows
The Character Cafe - Use a Natural or Neutral colour and some glitter
The Gingerloft - Bows
Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes
Wee Memories - Bowtiful Ribbon Challenge
Please pop over to the Pixie Cottage to see the other paper piecing masterpieces that the fab DT have made.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
