CASology 75

I really haven't had the time or the creativity to make and post cards lately but I knew I needed a thank you card and I wanted to use the Simon Says Stamp holiday border.  I tried it earlier and made a mess but I thought I'd give it another go.

Using PTI's Tipped Tops, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock and stamped it with the border in red, white and blue.  I know, I know. Those are really more patriotic colors but my dark green just didn't show up well on the kraft.  This way it looks like a winter sweater without it being too Christmasy.  The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Christmas, stamped in HA Royal Red.

I'm entering this in the challenge over at CASology.

Now you see why I wanted it to look like a sweater. ;)

Thanks for stopping by.  I know everyone is busy getting ready for the holiday, including me.  I just hope the weather isn't as bad as predicted so my family can get here.  We had freezing rain Thursday night with more last night and snow tonight.  If you or your family are traveling, I pray for safe journeys for all of you.

I really LOVE this design, and the red,white, and blue did not read as patriotic to me, it read as cozy warm!

Thanks for adding this wonderful card to the CASology Card Gallery and joining us this week! Love seeing you so faithfully play along!!

Happy Holidays Bobby!

Well, you must know that I am in love with those tipped tops dies, and so I love this card with those dies. Very cool way to interpret the word knit. It does really look like a sweater.
