  1. They need to design some metal-dies just for you for this set!! You amaze me with your attention to detail and patience for piecing this all together. Its totally worth all that work though, a gorgeous card. And the little digger, what a fantastic idea!! Just love it and such a clever use of the stamp set. Create a Smile will be so glad they asked you to be part of this hop!!!

  2. Wow Therese, you amaze me!
    First of all: Thanks for sharing the video, I loved it. You patience on that paper piecing is incredible – and the card turned out so super cute! So clever to make him peek out of only one box!

    Haven’t got time for the hop right now – hopefully later I will get a chance while I am burning the midnight oil waiting to pick up my party boy.

  13. That was really hard work but I absolutely love the pinguin card! 🙂 It’s a great idea to cut the presents apart and use different colours. I have to try this, too!
