TTTC094 Warm Winter Wishes

 Hi stampers...I promise, this is my last post of the day, LOL!  It just happens to be Tic Tac Toe time, and Team X is up for this challenge:

Each year, I always try to make Cassidy a little felt ornament for their Christmas tree; I don't know if she likes them, but I sure love making them!  So naturally I went for the top row across:  ribbon, animal and felt.  And here we go:

My first task was to figure out an animal, and at first I was going to create a little felt fox.  But then I remembered these sweet little wooden foxes my German friend Claudia gave me a couple of years ago!  They were perfect!  I simply colored in the areas with a Bronze Blend marker and my fox was finished!  I have a pretty large stash of felt, so I pulled out some black, gray and white to create my little scene, using some oval and scalloped dies and blanket stitching them together:

I heat embossed a sentiment from a Lawn Fawn set on a piece of Real Red cardstock and diecut it, then glued it on and added a snowflake sequin, a piece of black and white gingham ribbon that I colored with a Real Red Blend, and then added a Real Red Braided Linen Trim hanger on the back:

I hope she likes it! And I hope you'll be able to play with our challenge this week!  Lots of possibilities with our grid---check out what our designers did as well at the TTT blog!  See you there!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love what you did with the ribbon and that fox is so cute. Foxes are next to my love for bunnies and deer!

Too cute! You and Cassidy might enjoy watching on utube. It's all about a fox rescue in Minnesota run by a young woman (covered with tattoos) who rescues foxes from fur farms and finds homes for them. The "star" of the videos is Finnigan Fox. Not only is it entertaining, but jt's also educational.

LeAnne, how could she not love it? Okay, maybe not so thrilled today, but having not had a grandma, I'm pretty sure she will cherish each and every one, one day... this might be her favorite!
I know I love it! All the different elements come together so sweetly.

Adorable! Great job and if Cassidy doesn't like them now (which I am sure she loves them!) she will treasure them forever! What a great thing to do. Thanks for sharing!
