Oh, the weather outside is frightful so a Smitten Mitten’s handmade card is SO delightfully perfect for a PCC sketch! I’m such a mitten girl! I love mittens and had so much fun creating this handmade card. This weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch inspired me to use the Smitten Mitten’s Stamp set with the tiny kitty mitten Framelits.  I’m so sad that this stamp set is retiring the end of December.  Now is the TIME to go purchase retiring products before they are gone by visiting my Stampin’ Store.  Stampin’ Up! is offering amazing products in the clearance section as well as some discounted items from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

Now, since it is Wednesday, you know what that means… I’m over at the Paper Craft Crew for the Weekly Challenge!  This week we have another Sketch Challenge. Come on over and check out the Design Team submissions.  The challenge starts today and ends on Tuesday, December 12 @ 1:00 PM EST.

Smitten Mitten’s Bundle

Paper Craft Crew Challenge #271

Eek… Can you believe it is December already? I don’t know where the time has gone! Caleb definitely keeps me busy and so do the Stamping Classes that I offer in my home as well as at the Ugly Mug Coffee Shop in Garner, NC. This card is bittersweet for me as I mourn this stamp bundle being retired at the end of this month.  You may see more coming from this set as I say farewell.

Smitten Mitten’s Traditional Colors

This handmade card is a marriage between the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and the Smitten Mitten’s Bundle. The featured colors include Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. Then, the background layer uses Vellum embossed with little silver snowflakes. Where there are Mittens there is usually snow (or so I tell myself.)
