Warm Wishes!

This week, the Jingle Belles have their challenge up and it's a prompt: "Baby It's Cold Outside!" A good time to use felt, snowflakes, mittens and scarves, and anything else that might cozy up a holiday card! It has been snowing here and the temperature is dropping... a perfect time to make some mittens!
This is probably my favorite holiday card I have ever made. I love the stitching and the woolly mittens, the bright snowflake paper (by Crape Paper) and the perfect sentiment (by Papertrey Ink). A close up of those finely crafted mittens:
Now, this is definitely not a card I would mass produce. While I enjoyed making it, it was a bit time consuming. Thanks, Jingle Belles, for the nudge to create a fun card with felt- which I LOVE!


  1. So cute!!! LOVE those mittens!

  2. Wowza ... I would have to say it's one of my favorite holiday cards as well ... the fabulous color combination ... adorable mittens and wonderful detail stitching. Whoever receives this masterpiece will set it on their desk for weeks admiring it each and every day ... thanks so much for having fun creating with felt & enjoying our jingle belles journey.

    (ps you've mentioned one of my fave JB things: having the time to PLAY AROUND each week with an idea MINUS the stress and pressure of imminent holiday deadline!) (ok that AND seeing the cards made by everyone else under the same carefree circumstances!) (pss: you SO rock!) ♥
