Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...My Favorite Month

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  We are an international group who have joined together for this blog hop.  Every month we hop on the 2nd Wednesday of the month .  We have a theme and it is always fun to see all the different projects.  This month our theme is My Favorite Month.

What is your favorite month?  This was surprisingly hard for me to answer.  Every month has its charms and also its pitfalls.  I could make a case for any month being my favorite but I couldn't think of a way to represent that on a card so I decided I would just pick a month.


Can you guess the month from my card?  Yes, that's easy...December!  December has an edge over the other months since well, Christmas!  December is also my husband's birth month and my son's so there is no shortage of things to celebrate.  

I used the Delivering Cheer stamp set and wanted her to hold a big birthday cake but was unable to find one that would work so I went with the cake from the Sweets & Treats stamp set.  I actually think it is a figgy pudding.  I have never had figgy pudding so I am not sure but it looks like the pictures I have seen.   

I stamped the women's legs and skirt and did some paper piecing for the skirt.  The black and  white check is from the Pattern Party DSP (Host Reward choice).  I stamped and colored the figgy pudding using Stampin' Blends.  I placed the figgy pudding on the plate which is actually the cake stand cut down in size.   I stamped a cut out her arms (sounds terrible!) and placed them around the pudding and the plate and adhered it to the skirt.  


I added a few Wonderful Snowflakes to the corners and adhered it to another design from the Pattern Party DSP.  The sentiment is from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.   

Now it is time for you to see what month is Teri West's favorite.
