Don Your Ugly Sweater!

It's been a bit since I have blogged but I am finally done with turning our back bedroom into my craft room and so I sat down on Thursday to create my first card in my new creative space!

I decided to play along with the Jingle Belles challenge, as it's been a while since I was able to join them. They have a great sketch for the challenge and we all know sketches are my favorite thing to play along with!

I used the MFT Comfy Sweater Die to create my card. I was originally going to use the bigger sweater on my card but the smaller sweater worked better for this sketch after I cut them out and arranged them around. You can see I altered the placement of the circle and rectangle panel just a tad to make my elements fit on there. There is also NO coloring on this card, which is pretty rare for me!

Make sure you head over to the Jingle Belles blog to play along with them!

A few pics of my new space. The window is being replaced in a few weeks and so I'll hang up the fabulous plaid valance I got when that is done, it matches my wall color beautifully.......

My sweet diabetic kitty Bismarck. We got him some stairs to climb up onto my desk and he loves looking out the window!

Stamps: Cozy Greetings, Snowfall Background (both MFT)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler (SU), Chocolate Chip (SU), Neenah Solar White, AC Patterned Paper-Merrymint
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Zig Zag Stitch Circle (MFT), Die-namics Blueprints 15, 23 and 30 (MFT), dimensionals
