CCC #75...

Hello friends!!  Wow.. Christmas is almost upon us!  Are you ready??? Not me, ha!  Today is Tuesday and that means a brand new cue word.  Wow, wow, wow!!!   The gallery was crammed full of absolutely STUNNING projects for last week's cue word:  snow.  This week's cue word knit should bring out the creativity in everyone!  No sponsor this week, but we do have the absolutely fabulous Kim joining us as guest designer!!

 
So... this week's cue really had me stumped at first.  I know that PTI has a super cute set devoted to knitting, but I don't own it and I don't own many other stamps that feature knitting... except for a few stamps featuring scarf wearing snowmen... so that's where I went!  The image from Penny Black is called "happy soul" (4106K).  I used some patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Santa's List 6x6 pad that featured the diamond pattern on the top.  I cut the piece of paper as you see and then stamped the image.  I did a bit of Copic coloring on Mr. Snowman and then added subtle glimmer with silver and black Wink of Stella brush markers.   The piece was adhered to a kraft card base and the sentiment (from the Penny Black clear set "the Wonder" (30-040) was added. 

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see where this week's cue word "knit" takes you!  In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, KimberlyTracey and guest designer, Kim!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft; PP:  Teresa Collins; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella silver and black markers

Hello Rosie,
This appears to be a difficult Challenge, but as usual you have managed very well to design a gorgeous creation to fit.
I am loving what you are making at the moment, your design skills are always impressive, and when you add a few more elements then I am salivating BIG time, I hope I do not sound weird when I say this????
Glad you liked the Christmas card.
Smiles:)
Sue
