Challenge Reminder: Sweater Weather with a Whittle Squirrel
by Kim Singdahlsen
It's Sweater Weather!! And that's exactly what this month's challenge is. This is just a reminder that you still have time to play along. Just click on the Challenge link and get all of the details.
I adore the moment that the weather changes and I can wear sweaters (or sweatshirts or fleece or anything cuddly and warm). Of course this starts with autumn - particularly the point in autumn when the leaves have changed and then there is frost on the leaves each morning. I LOVE the contrast of bright colors and sparkly frost.
So when I sat down to create my Sweater Weather scene, I used glitter paper from the Memory Box Glitzy Glitter pad for the leaves. I decided to add a fall scene on a windowsill (which mostly was inspired by my cat hissing at the squirrel on the fence about 10 minutes before I started this card!)
Inside the Small Madison Window, I cut some strips of plaid for curtains and added some sparkly yellow for the glow of warm lights. The window sill is filled with sparkly Orchard Leaves, a Pile of Pumpkins, and the Whittle Forest Squirrel. The squirrel needed some where to run off to (if a cat started hissing at it!) and the Swaying Birch worked for that.
To keep everything warm and rustic, I used Woodgrain papers for the background and for the tree. Then a few sparkly gems to add to the bright, frosty scene.
Right now I am inside in the warmth, looking out at the squirrels (who aren't nearly as cute as the Whittle Forest Squirrel in real life), cuddled up in a soft sweater. I hope you are all warm, happy and cozy!
