Winter's Thanks...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

Only a few more days until Christmas and I'm desperately trying to squeeze in some time to make thank you cards for all the goodies we've been gathering beneath the tree! Luckily, this week's Mojo Monday sketch is nice and simple, and I thought I combine the challenge with Julee's Winter Mittens contest. (How's that for efficiency at the holidays??)
For this card, I took out my beloved Perfect Plum paper that is down to its last sheet and stamped a few pretty snowbursts all over for my background. For the mittens, I printed out the digi onto white cardstock and colored in a pattern using Copics, adding a tiny liquid pearl before carefully cutting out the image. My sentiment is actually Julee's combined with one from another stamp set (Bean Tip: If you are in need of a specific type of sentiment, masking and combining sets is a wonderful way to go. You'd be surprised at how many different sayings you can come up with to suit your needs!)
