Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Wrap up Warm with Something Knitted

Big Yay for the weekend! Time for another challenge at Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge. This week it's my turn to choose the theme & as the weather turns colder I'd like to see your images

(with something knitted)

I have to confess to forgetting about the something knitted bit myself even, but this little Wee cutie by Whimsey Stamps is wearing gloves, so it's OK. I was so keen to ink her up, I just had to use her! She's coloured with Distress Inks & the papers are Cosmo Cricket - Mitten Weather. I love this pad. The die cut is a Magnolia Doo Hickey.

You can see the Glamour Dust on the fur trim better in this photo. I also sprinkled a little over the Crackle Glaze I put on her wings.

It's all very simple, but this has to be one of my favourites of the Xmas cards I have made this year. I love the image & the colour scheme. I based the layout on last weeks Sketch Saturday sketch, but forgot by the time I posted this the challenge would be out of date, duh!

This card does however, fit the bill at Totally Gorjuss, where the theme is 'Pastel Christmas'.

I hope you'll pop on over to the Secret Crafters blog to see the awesome creations of my fellow D-Teamies.

All that remains is to Thank You all so much for looking & wish you a wonderful weekend.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
