I finally had a chance to sit down and stamp tonight and make something with the ColourQ colors for this week:


Ooh, aren’t these sweet…reminds me of mittens my mom used to knit for us kids! I can knit a scarf, but mittens---I don’t think so! Luckily, I just got a set of Nestie mitten dies…so cute, and I cut a pair out on Saturday but hadn’t made them into a card yet…and guess what, they were Cherry Cobbler too! So here we go:


My Whippersnapper stamps were getting dusty on my shelf so I thought the Winter Schminter set would be perfect for this challenge! I used some BG Wassail paper; a snowflake die-cut from the Northern Flurries die and covered with some vintage glitter; a banner cut from Laura Pryor’s little banner die, and the snowflake on the mitten is from Waltzingmouse! I really spread the love around on this card! Here are a couple close-ups:



Hmmm, maybe there’s a bit TOO much going on on this card!!! Oh well! It sure was fun to stamp! And get this…I had just finished this card when I got an email in my inbox from…..Anna Wight! What a coincidence! We were doing a recipe exchange—so now I not only have some of Anna’s stamps but a recipe from her too! Edited to add: this card also qualifies for the Little Red Wagon challenge 56--to use some Basic Grey on your card! Woohoo!

If you need any details on this card, email me as the list is long! :D As we get ready for the Thanksgiving holiday, I hope everyone takes time to thank the Lord for the many blessings we have!
