Showing my SheetLoad with a Doodle Dragon freebie

Hello, again! Today is your lucky day - Dustin Pike is giving away a really cute Christmas dragon today! Here's a peek at what I did with it.

I used the July sketch for SheetLoad of Cards magazine to come up with this little guy, and decided to do something I rarely do: I paper pieced. In fact, the entire image is pieced with Christmas paper scraps from last year. I embellished with ribbons and poinsettia flower brads that I picked up during Michael's after-Christmas sale. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, also an after-Christmas bargain. It's hard to see, but I used a QuickKutz embossing folder on the card base to add a little interest. I also used my Fiskars border punch for the scallops and my Tonic ticket tag punch on the corners of the image.

So, I guess this is officially my first Christmas card of this year, and even though I don't want to admit it Christmas is fast approaching. Have you started your Christmas cards yet, or are you more of a last-minute kind of person?
