The Heart Desires - second helpings!

Thank you to The Heart Desires for inviting me to play cards as a Guest Designer for Challenge #6 - that team is so sweet, they even ask 'runner ups' to be their guests!  OH and thanks to that handsome dude in the inspiration photo for helping me get my mojo on!  Don't you love him? 

 
For my second helping, I've worked with that awesome sketch, and captured a few other elements of the photo... see if you can find them:
 
Die-namics wreath; Neat & Tangled Perfect Blend to-go cup
and a few more found papers from my leftover-Christmas stash -
it truly is like Christmas all over again!

 Thank you for all your sweet messages!  I'm off to check out all of your creations ... you're playing cards, too, right?

That manly man could get every girl's heart a flutter, couldn't he? LOL I adore your card, Michele. That background stamp is amazing. Love the textured look of a sweater. I adore the pops of color against the neutral background and the bits of gold in the wreath. You are so delightful. Thanks for sharing! :) Hugs!

Perfect as always, Michele.

This is fantastic. Love those mittens and the wreath. Oh, I just noticed that fantastic cable pattern on the paper, and it looks like an error free copy of the scarf I am currently knitting.

Don't think I've ever described a card as warm and cosy, Michele ... but this is exactly that ... and stylish too! The cable knit background, those cute fingerless gloves, the hot coffee ... and that welcoming, delicate wreath with just a touch of rich gold ... fantastic! Hope the snow stayed away ... and that you're staying as cosy as your card! Hugs, Anita :)
