Knitting Warm Winter Wishes

I'm back after a long hiatus due to a busy schedule and a very tired computer that does not want to cooperate. This is a Christmas card for my friend Mary, who knits up a storm, and even more so now that she is retired.

The House Mouse design is by Stampendous and the sentiment is by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I thought the red and green scheme works for a Christmas card, but it could be used year round by swapping out the colours. I stamped with Memento and coloured with Copic markers, then overstamped with Versafine Black and clear embossed.

I am entering this in the 52 Card Throwdown Challenge, which is to pick any of the previous challenges from 2015. I chose the August Colour Challenge:

And the Weekly Christmas Card Challenges Week #1.

Thanks for visiting!

This made me smile! (My Mom is big into crocheting. She would get such a kick out of this. I will send her a picture of it!) :) I love the images and your coloring. Great job!
Thanks for sharing over at Christmas Card Challenges!
