Christmas Paper Piecing Blog Hop

Welcome to the VERY first Paper Piecing blog hop by Nikki.  Nikki is a talented artist that creates cutting file and digital stamps.  Along with this being her first blog hop to show off some of her awesome designs, it is also a design team call!  I am hoping to be selected, because I have a silouette cameo on my Christmas list and I would LOVE to use some of her cutting files :).

For my project I decided to use one of her digital stamps of a reindeer.  I fell in love with him and his crooked little smile. 
I thought he looked a little love struck, so I used a sentiment from Pink by Design stamp set called "To the Moon".  It says "Nothing prepared me for your smile."

I used Martha Stewarts branch border punch and matted it on some maroon cardstock, to give it a holiday feel. 

Hope you like it.  Please stop by Nikki's Blog and check out her designs.

Your next stop is my very talented sister, Patti.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost along with way.

I see why you liked this little guy so much, his crooked smile is adorable! I think he is one of my fav paper piecing Nikki has on her site so far. GREAT job on the details, love the boarder and the shading you did, it looks awesome.
