Time Out Challenge #125 - Inspired by Words

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all recovering from all the festivities over the last few days.  It's time to relax and chill out.  At least that's what is on my agenda!
The Time Out challenge currently in its second week is our Inspired by Words challenge.  The words to be challenged by are!
My card is geared towards the words family and life.  We recently lost my father-in-law and my family was in need of some warm and cozy hugs, which we received from many of our friends, family, and many of you!  So I think this card is appropriate.  I made another card a few weeks ago with this same hat and scarf, but there was a girl's face in place of the words.  I had colored two sets of these and didn't want the second set to go to waste, so I created this card.  The background was embossed with a SU embossing folder that went well with the hat and scarf motif.  There's some sparkle on it too!
 You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Michele, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so sorry for your loss, Lisa ... sending prayers that you will find comfort in the memories you shared with your father in law. What a lovely, cosy card ... the warm colours are beautifully complemented by the 'knitted' background texture! Hugs, Anita :)

Hi Lisa. I'm so sorry for your loss. My family had a loss at the end of Octber too, and I know how meaningful those hugs are. I LOVE this card, and it is perfect for your intent. Wishing you a peaceful and healing heart in the new year.
