Avery Elle December/January Blog Hop


Hey everyone!  Are you ready for the new Avery Elle release?  Before I move on to the fun goodies, I have to say a farewell and a hello.  The farewell is for our sweet Kasia Curry.  That sweet girl is stepping down from the team and we will miss her and her wonderful creations terribly!  Hugs Kasia!!!  

The hello is for our new team member, Melania Deasy!  I've always been a big fan of Melania and I can't wait to see what she's going to create!

Now, let's talk new release:)  For my card, I used the new knitty set, Made with Love!  Even if you don't knit, this is the perfect wintery set.  I used the long border stamp to create a custom background.  To give it that dyed look, I blended Distress inks over my stitches in an ombre pattern.   For the sentiment, I borrowed a stamp from the Let it Snow set.  Apropos, no?
