'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Ho ho ho!! Listening to Christmas songs . . . and making Christmas cards!! So . . . ta daaaaa . . . here's my very first Christmas Card for 2016! (Actually, I could've sworn I had made one earlier this year, but I can't find it! LOL!)

This sweet little Mo Manning image is called "A Good Book" and is available HERE in Mo's online store! I paper pieced the chair, ottoman, & lampshade!! Here's a close-up . . .

I also distressed the edges then inked them with "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink. Here's a side view . . .
