Warm Knit Hat

Happy Monday, peeps!  I am running very late today!  I have a quick card to share with you, no challenges, just trying to make a few samples for my stamp clubs today!  I was on the fence about the background stamp Knit Together, but I did end up getting it and honestly, it makes me smile every time I use it!  Here's a fun way to use it:

My first step was to stamp a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock with Balmy Blue ink.  I diecut a partial oval from the Layering Oval dies and a partial panel from the Scalloped Contour dies from the panel, sponged around the edges and adhered them together in the shape of a hat.  I stamped a diecut a snowflake from Merry Snowflakes for the pompom, then layered it on a Basic White panel that was embossed three times with the snowflake border die from  Stitched Snowflake dies.  

A sentiment from the same set was stamped in Fresh Freesia and diecut with the Stitched Rectangle die. Everything went on a Fresh Freesia card base.

I added a Blue Adhesive-Backed gem in the center of the pompom for fun!  So happy you popped in today!

I don't have any pictures to share today, but now that Wayne is home safe and sound, I can tell you why he was stuck in Bermuda!  He went there on a business trip and got Covid!  So he had to stay quarantined for ten days while the rest of his coworkers got to come home!  Blessedly, he had very few symptoms and was able to work the whole time he was there.  But we are VERY glad he is home and he had lots of people praying for him!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Super cute card, LeAnne! Can't go wrong with a knit hat and snowflakes! Glad to hear that Wayne made it home & his symptoms were not bad but what a place to be stuck in! Atleast his everyday views were pretty spectacular!
