Warm Hands

Okay, I'm posting this while I'm at convention.  Wish you were here too!  Having waaaay too much fun!  But thought you might need another Christmas idea to get you primed for the coming holidays.  I know it's so weird thinking of Christmas when it's so dreadfully hot and sticky outside, but that's the way it goes.  So get ready - here are some warm mittens for you!

Stamps:  Chock-Full of Cheer and More Merry Messages
Cardstock:  Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White
Ink:  Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dot and Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders, Island Indigo Baker's Twine, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Mini Glue Dots, and Dimensionals
This card has very clean and simple lines to it, but the textures take it up a notch.  It sort of reminds me of the different patterns in a pair a hand-knit mittens.

The two colors chosen aren't classic Christmas colors, but look very warm and rich together.  Sometimes you just need to get away from the regular red and green of Christmas and have a little fun.
Love the new sentiment set for Christmas.  Lots of wonderful fonts and the wording should fit nicely for my cards.  After using the last sentiment set for several years, I was ready for a new one.  And this one is lovely!

Thanks for checking in.  Check back in another day or two for another Christmas in July sample.  Sharon
