Fair Isle Inspiration


(The weather here is terrible, I'll add a new picture when the sun returns!

As I mentioned yesterday, I won the entire October Release from WPlus9. Woohoo!! While (im)patiently awaiting the arrival of my new stamps, I came across this gorgeous dress in the Hanna Andersson catalog. It spoke to me & immediately started my mojo flowing again!

Check it out:

One of the stamps I won happened to be a Fair Isle Background set. I knew exactly what I was going to do with the stamps when they arrived. I LOVE building my own backgrounds and this set is no different! Inspired by the above photo, I paired the Fair Isle Backgrounds in Basic Gray, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler with mittens & a sentiment from Winter Wishes to make my card. I love it, it makes we want to snuggle up and drink hot cocoa!

Thank you Dawn for the stamps! They most definitely played a HUGE part in getting my creativity flowing again!!!

Have a good one everyone!
