Day 9 - ODOP Christmas - 'tis the Season

Happy Wednesday, my friends...

It's a quite hectic day for me, especially with the sore throat. Last night, as I mentioned, I prepared for the new adventure. Yes.. this morning, it seemed like "a dream comes true". I finally got a chance to share knowledge of little sewing to mothers. Mothers here were the parents of the students at my school. The registration form was designed to accommodate 5 people only since there are only 5 sewing machines. Then, 8 ladies showed up. C'est pas grave... :D
They learned how to draw a pattern, to hand-sew and finally to sew using the sewing machine. They were so excited. Because it was their first time operating and even seeing the machine in person. We had so much fun. We made owl pin cushions, but then we added a chain and made it into an owl keychain. See the picture.

And after that I went home to take a rest for a while. I felt so tired. Then before 1, I went to school to teach until 3 o'clock in the afternoon. I picked up my daughter and waited her for her piano lesson. I overslept in the car. Hehehe... *the prove that I was exhausted.
Just now, I managed to make this card. Still using the same stamp as yesterday's. The theme: use yesterday's stamp with Christmas background.

 It's a simple card, but I like how it turned out, just as I imagined previously.

I used Canson paper for the white basic. The front part was embossed with Snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The pattern papers were still from Bazzil Basic Papers. I love this set. The sentiment was from Papertrey Ink, punched with Stampin Up label punch. The banner die cut was from Simon Says Stamp.

Look at the cheeks, the coat and the beanie. I added dots of Pearl Liquid. So cool.. This is the closer look. I also used 'paper piecing' technique for this cute girl. I love this technique. So less time consuming.

Do you like her? :D
