StampTV CSS Sketch Challenge Hop

Welcome to another StampTV CSS blog hop. This month we are using a Sketch created by Melissa Cash.


You should have come from her blog here if you are following along the hop from the beginning. If not, I recommend starting at StampTV and hopping though the list of CSS members who are sharing the project they've made with the sketch. You will want to comment on each blog post for a chance to win some free rubber.  Details are listed at the end of this post.

I am soooo ready for winter. I am loving fall of course. The wonderful cool mornings and beautiful colors. And especially Pumpkin Spice Chai and Lattes from Starbucks. Yum! But nothing beats winter and snow for me. So my card is ready for winter with a big warm hug. :)


I used the Warm and Wonderful set illustrated by Rupa Shevde. I love this set with all it's knitted warmness. And I love the sentiment I used on my card. Isn't that a great way to send a big hug to someone far away?
I used one of my favorite color combos Red, Blue and White with a splash of Green. The red card stock is Pure Luxury Red Hot.

Now it is time to hop over to Miesje's blog to see what she has to share.

And remember you need to comment for a chance to win some free rubber. Here are the details:
Leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (October 30), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Melissa, great idea! I love the card, but I for 1 am not ready for the cold weather to hit. I love the snow, but the cold is not my friend. lol GOOD JOB WITH YOUR CARD!!!

Sharri said...

Wonderful card Melissa! I love the blue and red together with the green scarf!

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

This is a great card and sentiment. At first glance I thought the image was a support ribbon. It would be great stamped on yellow with the same sentiment to send to someone in the military.

Lea said...

There is something about putting on a nice soft, warm scarf on a chilly winter day that does feel like a little hug, especially if it's a homemade scarf! Your card is warm and sweet and just makes me feel hugged inside!
