It's 2013, and 13 is my lucky number and I know it's going to be a wonderful, crafty, kind of year.

I'm so happy to share with you today a new craft I learned from my friend Miss Cassandra over at
Creating with Color by Cassandra.  I always heard of paper piecing but had never tried it.   Let me tell you, it's all about the scissors.  Cutter Bee Scissors! Now hubby can have his mustache trimming scissors back *teehee*

Ok, so normally when you think of Cheers! You think of champagne glasses clinking...but it's been SOOOOO cold, my mind has been on tea and HOT COCOA!
The cocoa mugs are from MCT Do The Cocoa Motion stamp set and the backgound paper is from EP Winter Wishes paper pad that came in the huge goodie box I won over at MCT
I paper pieced the marshmellows (yummy, my fav part!) in white card stock.  Then I stamped Peachy Keen Faces on each mug.  The face on the left is from Everyday Character Face Assortment, this is my favorite face on that set.  And the face on the right is from the Happy Lashes Assortment. Then I pop dotted both mugs. I think for my first paper piecing, it didn't turn out too bad. 

The sentiment "CHEERS" is from Peachy Keen's December 2012 set.
