Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

Happy World Card Making Day!!  You certainly don't have to look far to find things to inspire you today! Almost every on-line forum or stamp company or on-line store has something special to help you join in the fun!

Waltzingmouse Stamps is no different! We have a sweet little digi image for free - and if you use it in one of your crafty projects, you may just win a free stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps YAY!!... just check out Claire's blog for the details! 

Okay our sketch is a fabulous one! It is so easy to be inspired by it in many different ways!! Here is the sketch:
and here is my creation!

I just received some wonderful Spellbinders dies - and I love them all....but I chose to use the mittens for this card.

I stamped the die cut mittens with the Knitted Backgrounds from Faux Fun! I have been wanting to do this since I got my Faux Fun background months ago! I am so happy that there is a die cut now that I can fulfill my fantasy with! (I know...I'm dull....)

I over stamped the top of the mittens with white ink so it looks like they are turned down.....and then added some snowflakes and buttons with twine to finish it off!

The sentiment is from the Very Vintage Christmas stamp set - I love "Warm Wishes" It just makes so much sense with mittens!!

And how about that twine to hold the mittens together? Do you remember those mittens in your coat - I remember immensely!!- my brother would pull one of the mittens so that the other one would scoot up around my back and get caught - and then the string would be so long that my mittens would be hanging out of the arms of my coat and dragging along the ground LOL!!
