Cozy Christmas...Inkspirational Challenge #171~Word Prompt: Comfort

Hello,

Waving at everyone from our *very* snowy surroundings and welcoming you to Inkspirational Challenge #171~Word Prompt: COMFORT


Before sharing my card, please meet the new designers joining the Inkspirational team:


We are thrilled to have these ultra-talented, incredibly sweet gals join us and I know, you'll be delighted as well.  The 'extra spice' their presence adds to the challenges is certainly exciting.

Given the cold weather, the accumulation of white stuff and the rapid approach of Christmas, I decided to go for a 'cozy' take on comfort, using my new Concord and 9th Cozy Christmas set, which I purchased because alllll of the cards showcased on their site caught my eye.  I essentially - and  shamelessly - cased one for this challenge (although it didn't turn out as beautifully as theirs did - more practice required).. Kraft background, traditional Christmas colours...'cozy and comfy', in my world.


That's it from me.  Please drop by to see how my teammates' creations:


Looking forward to seeing your interpretations of COMFORT in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

Just perfect for the challenge! I love these images, I'm sure you made a good buy for this Christmas, this a very versatile set! I actually had to pause writing this comment and go to see the set in the store... Really love it. It might find it's way to my Christmas cards as well! The kraft base looks very pretty. xxx

Carol, this is a great card! I love the stitching and your use of cozy. Your card makes me think of a jumper (sweater) you would wear around Christmas in your neck of the woods. It would be way too hot here for that... LOL. I can't believe it is already snowing there - is it early?
