WMS November SoAP - Day 2 Everything Christmas

Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse Stamp of Approval Parade!  Did you follow along the parade route yesterday and get totally inspired for your holiday card needs??!!  (scroll down to yesterday's post if you missed it!)

Once again I've been inspired by looking in catalogues or magazines for my creation.  Today my card was inspired by a Martha Stewart ad for some of her bedding - aptly named Fair Isle Sweater Knit Throw!
I bet you can tell what 'just released' stamp set this inspired me to use??!!  Yes, yes - you're correct!!!  Nordic Winter of course!!  Claire told us that this stamp set was the best seller of the October release -  I hope you ordered one - (there's still time so order it now if you missed it!)  then you can make this card to send out this year!!

Now off you go to check out these Design Team members who are participating in the parade today!  Hope to see you tomorrow for Day 3 of our lovely parade?!

Julia, this is a wonderful card! I really love this set very much and I love your card in red-white with that beautiful pattern and the greater image on the background. Together with the sentiment it looks just perfect.

Kind regards
