...So... let's get on to the new Let's Face it Friday challenge, shall we?

The Challenge:
Create a project using your PKS Faces and fabric. Create Fabric Flowers, use scraps to layer, ruffle or pleat, or use in your die cuts for some fun texture!
 I created a door knob hanger, that holds a small gift. The box is the perfect size for a jar of nail polish and a gift card for a pedicure or movie tickets and two bags of candy.
 I used the December Door Hangers svg kit from SVG
 The papers are from DCWV's new stack called Jolly Holiday. His scarf is a piece of red fabric that I found in my stash. I just tied it in a knot and snipped the ends so that it looked like fringe.
The snowman's face is from Peachy Keen Stamps, PK-480 Christmas Character Face Assortment and the "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from the new PKS-15 Oh by Golly! sentiment set. If you haven't seen this new sentiment stamp set, you need to check it out! It is loaded with a ton of great sentiments.

 Design must be new
Project must include PKS Faces
Link up by 12/22- 11:59 pm CDT
