Sweetest Snowman
This is my favorite stamp EVER! ok, it has been a favorite for a long time.  I have had it for years.  I smile every time I look at it.  I used MFT new little Die-namics snowflake die cut.  It was the first time I used them and I really liked the way they cut.  The wool felt is from Paper Trey Ink....along with the yummy grosgrain ribbon that matches their paper and felt perfectly....and the buttons ....oh....the buttons!
Whats on your Holiday wish list this year???

Felt Trimmed Mittens.....
This paper from My Minds Eye is so cute on its own I didn't want to cover it all up.  I stamped the red solid background paper with a mini snowflake stamp from Hero Arts to add a little dimension.  The mittens are from Unity's New set by Jillibean.  I stamped them once on the red paper and then again on some striped paper and popped them up with foam mounting tape.  Then I cut little pieces of felt for the cuffs.  Its so sweet in person!  Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for looking!

Cutesy and not me.
I have been looking at this Hero Arts set for two weeks.  Something about it caught my eye.  Odd, because it is so not my style.  I never tend to gravitate towards images that have that cutesy feel to them.  I am more vintage, dirty, darker than bright.  Yesterday I broke down and got it because in my mind I already know I am going to use for a class I have been developing and have had a few mental blocks with.  So, it came home with me.  Last night I went downstairs to help Sophia finish up printing a project of hers and next thing you know I was at my desk using this set that I couldn't decide if I even wanted or not!  I love how my mind works!  What I love most about this set is that I can cut each house up into a million different pieces and pop up window, doors, and rooftops.  The detailed work keeps my mind occupied and happy for hours.  Enjoy this card and keep our eye out for more cards done with this set over the next few weeks.
