Some challenges are more challenging than others, aren't they? Compare, for example, 'anything goes'  against a challenge that says 'use some wool'. When I first saw the wool challenge at Crafter's Cafe, I didn't think I'd enter, but something must have been brewing in my brain because, doing a bit of early Sunday morning crafting, I decided to give it a try.

I used a Pure Innocence image , coloured with Promarkers, some wool found languishing in a box (all tangled up with rarely-used ribbon etc) and some pompoms (same box!) . The sentiment stamps are by Avery Elle.

Top tip - if you're going to use a stamping tool to place your sentiment, do it before attaching bulky pompoms- doh!

Finally, I added buttons - I just thought they'd go with the knitting theme and also to join in the challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

I'd also like to join in the little girls and boys challenge at Fab n Funky .
