Paper- pieced cards for Rudolph Day

Good morning, I made some cards to enter the Rudolph Days Challenge, I was going to ener a different card but when I saw that this month's challenge is in honour of Kath I had to think again. I chose a Woodware stamp as I know she liked these, paper pieced the gnome's hat and made 3 cards- not in Kath's league of batch making...but I tried!
The designs are basically the same with different papers, colours and sentiments.
The first one I paper- pieced the main body of the hat, cutting out the patches and holly leaves 

and adding them to the coloured- with- Copic hat of the second one. I  doodled a border. with white gel pen.
The third one has a paper -pieced hat with patches  and holly leaves from different DP. The background is stencilled.

I really enjoyed making these and like the way they've turned out.
Thanks for visiting
Have a happy weekend

Hi Chris, just been catching up on all the fab cards I've missed you posting - it's been half-term here and my week has been full of 'not crafting' things to do!

Love these gnomes -so cute - have to say though your Christmas tree card, couple of posts back, is stunning and the background fabulous!

Marvin looks adorable as well, so cute in his nearly too small basket!
