  1. Happy New Year Samantha, great card- fantastic stamp and as I say every year, a great idea to keep Christmas crafting all year round... I'll try! Jx

  2. This is wonderful!! I am partial to Sami Stamps and you have done a fab job of this one!! xx

  3. Happy New Year Samantha! Love those playful cats on your card and the paper piecing is a great idea. Terrific card! :)

  4. Your paper pieced image looks great Samantha, I love the papers you have used and the pale colour palette too. I often try for a more pastel card creation but it always ends up with deeper, darker colours than I intended, just can't seem to pull it off. I hope you had a love Christmas and New Year and I'm looking forward to 2016 at ABC Christmas challenge.

  5. Your card is fab, Samantha. I love your choice of digi and the paper pieced elements! And the colours. Thanks for your lovely comment you left on my blog. Luv, Wilma

  6. This image really is a sweetie..

    Great design too.
    So happy to be part of your team x

  7. Samantha, this is a gorgeous card. your paper piecing is lovely and really neat (I am rubbish at it)! and I love the sparkle round the edge of your card.

  10. A fab card, and I may try to play along a bit more this year as one of my missions is to have my xmas cards made for November! Eeeeek.

  11. I love the repeat pattern of polka dots throughout the project! Very cute!

  12. Oh, I know it's a good idea but I just can't bring myself to do Christmas again just yet!
    This image is so sweet, the paper piecing looks fabulous and I love the touch of sparkle :-)
    Big hugs, Kat xx

  13. Your paper piecing is brilliant. Such a darling card! (I'm such a cat person so I especially love it.) :) Thanks for inviting me to join your sweet team and for all your patience & encouragement! I'm super excited to be with you guys!
    Crafty hugs from your new teamie!

  14. If I'm not mistaken, I believe I said 3 years ago that I would commit to doing this and I think I flopped out on the third post! I wonder if I have it in myself to do it this year. The guilt of having made NO cards this year should be motivation enough. OH and that image on your card...STINKING ADORABLE!!! Love your card and thank you for the inspiration to maybe get my butt in gear.
    Happy New Year!
    Big hugs,
    Lisa x

  15. LOVE THIS CARD! Darling design and image!
