52 Christmas Card Throwdown Winter Sweater Challenge Guest Designer

I'm guest designing this week for the 'Winter Sweater' challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I searched my stamps, trying to find someone (or something) wearing a sweater. Given the season, I found lots of coats, but no sweaters. That is, until I ran across this freebie Candy Cane Penguin digital stamp from Dearie Dolls. In fact, Mary Ellen has more than one cute sweater wearing image on her site – like these Ugly Sweater and Snowman Hot Chocolate stamps. Mary Ellen isn't posting any new digis, but she's kindly left her site up for us all to enjoy. I've made several cards with her images. This Cornucopia Thanksgiving card is a favorite. 

Paper is Craft Sensations Christmas Design pad and like all my paper pads it seems, is retired. The 'Have a Cosy Christmas' sentiment was created with Dhanikans Signature 2 font. I recently downloaded this font and this is the first card I've used it on. I think it's so pretty! I added a little ribbon to the card and topped it off with a festive red button.

Grab your favorite 'Winter Sweater' image, create a card, and link up!
