OWH World Cardmaking Day Bloghop!

Happy World Cardmaking Day and welcome to my blog! After you view each blog please return to the beginning of the hop at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog, where thumbnails will link you to every participating blog! Here's my winter-themed card based on OWH Sketch #4:
This is an original digi that I designed and am posting as a freebie to celebrate this event! I paper pieced with DP from My Mind's Eye (The Merry Days of Christmas 6x6 pad). The rest of the image is colored with Copics, with additions of silver pen and Glossy Accents. Let me know if you make any cards with my Little Helper digi; I'd love to see them. I designed it with with my son in mind--he always loved to help his Dad when he was little--but it could actually be a boy or girl depending on your choice of colors!
Have fun today!! I hope you will visit again soon.

Another fabulous vintage card Sherry! I love seeing how you paper piece and you've been my inspiration to start doing it in my cards too. Yes, this cute little image could be me as a kid too. I still have to shovel snow during New England winters but as an adult I don't smile so much about it now. LOL!
