I had a lot of fun making these rather whimsical cards today. The Merry Monday challenge this week was to use mittens or a mitten shape for your card and the Seize the Sketch challenge had a fun banner on it.
cute banner die from Savvy Stamps last year on sale at the end of the season and forgot to get it out for this year until now, thanks to the challenge! When I went to look for mittens - I found I had several stamps to choose from - who knew! I decided to go with these stitched mittens from Waltzingmouse that I paper pieced. The stitched flag sentiment strip is from Lil' Inker Designs and the stamped sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.
Sunday Stamps and this week it's a sketch challenge.
Waltzingmouse and WMS dies as well. I colored in the stripes on the candy cane with a Red Spica pen so it's a little glittery IRL
Here's the inside - continuing the peppermint theme!
Don't forget to check out the WMS Inspiration Blog - where the Design Team posts something every other day that is sure to thrill and inspire you! I'll be posting the 15th of each month over there so I hope you'll take a peek!
We had our first appreciable snowfall today - I actually had to scrape it off the car in the lot I park in where I get the subway to work. And they are predicting really cold temps in the 20's and more snow in the next few days - 2" - 4", so no blizzard but enough to shovel!
