Knit cap shaped Christmas card

Hi, there!
 I've been a bit detaching from playing on the internet and doing paper-crafts. Since my last post, it hasn't been difficult for me to use my time for those.  But finally..., I finished just only a card last weekend! :)
Though I'm disgusted with myself to write similar words, I apologize you, my dear friends and visitors who visit here frequently and left me your lovely comments. I couldn't visit your blogs and probably couldn't read all your e or snail mails.

 Here is my new holiday card, 'Knit cap shaped Christmas card' for the the Hero Arts October challenge Round 2. (I'm gonna go Frickr to submit this, if I make time for it.)
Click the photo above to enlarge please.

 Knitted the border (length: 4") of 'one-purl-one rib stitch' to use left-over tweed yarn and also made a pompon to put on the stamped image of Winter Tree's top.
I've been wanting to make a holiday card to use the 'joy word border' stamp as a terra. This set is really 'Oldies, but goodies!'. Love those designed font shapes! :) As a matter of fact, this card was made. And maybe, the tiny cutie snowman inspired me. He whispered me about making a knit cap shaped card? ;) But, wait! It seems that it's too difficult to put into an envelope...

Stamp used:
Hero Arts: Winter Tree / H5244, Holiday Word Borders / LL039, Stamp It Christmas / CM006

*Fortunately, I could upload this photo directly to blogger today. :)
It's over 2:30AM here. But I didn't have a dinner last night. I'm going to have something from now on and go to bed. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
 And the prize for my fab-five win in this August was arrived here about 10 days ago (I was away at that time), and finally I opened the parcel last night. That made me so happy! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, Hero Arts for the generousity!
I'm going to play with them after I wake up.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful week!
