IB97 Warm Woolen WIshes

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Time for another Inspired By challenge and with the upcoming COLD weather forecast, I think it's very appropriate! So here we go:

And here's Laurel's prompt....check out those warm blankets!  We're going to need them this weekend!

I know my background is more plaid than striped like the blankets in the picture, but while checking some cards out on other blogs, I came across this card by Heather Telford, and I loved the background so much, I just had to re-create it!  I actually had it lying on my desk, waiting to be embellished, when I saw Laurel's inspiration and I thought it might work!  I also used the Global Design Project's sketch for this week:

So to create the background, I stamped the Buffalo Check stamp in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate cardstock, then added Cajun Craze stripes with a SU marker.  The bunny from Nature's Beauty was stamped on a stitched panel with Memento ink and colored with Blends, and the little stitched sentiment piece is from an old Whippersnapper set, stamped in Cajun Craze.  The Nature's Beauty set happens to have a little "snow" stamp, so I filled in the background with it, then added some Ice Stampin' Glitter snow: 

This pretty little sentiment from Greatest Part of Christmas hostess set was stamped on the inside:

These are unusual colors for a Christmas card, but sometimes it's fun to think outside the box!  I hope you'll play along with us and use the inspiration photo to create something warm and fuzzy!  And check out what the DT created at Inspired By too! Thanks for popping by today!

A little snuggle time:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love this bunny and I'm so glad I have this set. I haven't inked him/her up yet but I'm due! What a cozy pic of Wayne and Cassidy. Have a blessed day.

Your bunny looks so pretty, LeAnne. I'm sure he'd love to snuggle in that warm blanket!

LeAnne it is a beautiful plaid! One that I would surely have chosen for a home-sewn wool kilt when I was a kid! LOve that little bunny!

I love that background. Good idea with the marker. The picture is cute, especially Eden in the background! Cracks me up! Love our doggies! Thanks for sharing! Stay warm!

Love this rather unusual colour combo that I would never have thought to put together LeAnne - and the plaid makes a great cosy background for your bunny.
