Keep Warm



Very appropriate for today! We've been clearing a couple of inches of snow which wasn't due until later today, and we're still on for more.  So nice warm drinks are definitely in order.

The cue word at CASology is blue.


The challenge at One Layer Wednesday, hosted this week by Heather, is Keep Warm.  Just check out that jumper card she made - and I bet she knits as well!

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a tall/long card.


CFC86: Create a CAS card that has one long side and one short side.
3 x 6, 4 x 8, etc. No standard A2s for this week.


The image stamp is another of my sale bargains (75p), from Inkadinkado, and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.

  4. What a great card shape and size. I really like the positioning and colour of your warm and welcoming cuppa.
    And yes, I do knit. The funny thing is I finished that little jumper image on my card and realised that I had unintentionally stamped it in the colour of the jumper I just completed for myself.

  7. Fabulous take on 'keep warm' ... love the blue sentiment with the blue cup full of ... um ... hot chocolate? If it's snowing then it must be, snow and hot choc go together like ... snow and hot choc! Stay warm ... Anita :)
