Knitty Kitty

There really are some great new digi stamp companies out there, and if like me you get stuck in your ways and keep going back to the same old, same old, then challenge wins can really open your eyes to what's out there!

A new company to me was 2 Cute Ink, and it was a challenge win at the end of last year that took me to their site.  Once there, I was really pleased I had stopped by, they have some lovely stamps and the image below really caught my eye.


I printed it twice, cut out the ball of wool then covered it with the real stuff then hand made the knitting needles from cocktail sticks and brads!

I'm really pleased with this one and have someone special in mind to send it too! Jx

PS. I added some snow photo's last night to my yesterdays post, in case any of you haven't got and felt left out!!!
