Adorable Little Sophie

I'm back to share with you the cutest little stamp/die set "eva"!!
A few weeks back at my win at "The Shabby Tea Room" 
my wonderful "gift" was a $20 certificate to the "Paper Sweeties" store

I sure had a hard time deciding what to purchase as there were some adorable choices!!
Until I saw this little "Sophie" stamp and die....
I have a granddaughter named Sophie, so the choice was made!!

By the seat of pants my you might say, I am entering her in the challenge at
using the photo shown below for the inspiration piece.

I went with the colors, red, black, white and of course the "snow".
I did a lot of fussy cutting and paper piecing on this one.
Look at her adorable coat with the teeny, tiny hearts on it....
The "buttons" on her coat are little button brads I have had in my stash for quite awhile!!
I gave her some swirls (using DS paper) on her "leggin's" and added Stickles for her boots!
The cut from some of that red velvet ribbon you see all over at Christmas time.
The snowflakes were made with CLD dies and I glittered the heck out of them!
I punched some little red hearts from glitter paper...
and hand cut her little hearts on her coat.

Soph's kitty was a new CLD die, it comes with a bunch of kitties, but I just cut this one
off and added red Stickles for her collar.  Oh, and my Sophie was colored with my Copics
but her cheeks, well, it is "real" blush, added with a Q-tip.

Isn't she cute???  Another granddaughter "Kendall" has a birthday next month and I think
with the hearts and all, it would be a perfect birthday card for her...what do you think???
I am entering this into the "new" "Work It Wednesday at "Simon Says"
where you add something new...which of course is my Sophie die/stamps and kitty die!

Where to get these goodies??
Sophie stamp set, clothes and die can be found HERE

This is as sweet as can be with the hearts and snowflakes and the darling little Sophie! I've seen these dress up dies before and thought they would have been so much more fun to play with than the paper dolls I had as a kid. They were fun at the time, though, but, oh, these dies!
