One Stitch at a Time Challenge 190

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're having that best of all challenges - an anything goes!

We're sponsored by:

See the challenge blog for details.

This time, the image was chosen by my team mate Shell, and it's Inviting Hug from Reeses Scrap Pieces.

I used the ready-coloured version, and added a background and wording in Photoshop Elements before printing. I then used all three of the supplied paper designs to complete the card!


It's a very simple card, but still quite effective, I think. And let's face it, we often need to make simple cards - especially for Christmas when we're making a lot more than usual!

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards for Men where the theme is 'Merry Christmas',
'C' is for Challenge where the theme is Christmas,
Deep Ocean where the theme is 'winter',
LEJ where the theme is 'Season's Greetings',
Papertake Weekly where the theme is 'snow and ice',
4 Krafty Girlz where anything goes,
Sister Act where anything goes,

Josephine, we all need a Hug ay Christmas and I can think of a number of friends I don't have the opportunity to see throughout the season. This very beautiful card would send my special thought and love to those I care about - and I'd feel I had been able to spread my love further afield. A delightful, warm, pretty and very caring card. Love Ingrid xxx

Great idea to stripe the background and co-ordinate with the hats and scarves!

Repeating the same pattern on the snowmen's scarves and background papers is brilliant! I would like to thank you for entering my ‘C… is for challenge’ blog and I wish you good luck in the draw.
Hugs,
