The Christmas Jumper

I always laugh when I see this image, from the La Pashe CD "The Wrinklies at Christmas"  - this rosy cheeked old gentleman seems very happy with his oversized Christmas Jumper, but that may have something to do with the empty wine bottle by the side of his chair!

The background is embossed to give a knitting style effect, using a Crafters Companion embossing folder, and I've used twine to attach a little "hank of yarn" charm, which I think was a magazine free gift.


I am sharing this with

Winter Wonderland - use a charm
Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes
Glitter and Sparkle - Use some Green
