Warm Wishes

I'll take some warm wishes - it is freezing here!

Here is a card today based on the ideas that were swirling after seeing this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge and Tuesday Trigger.

Here is what I created. Turned out just like I saw it in my head (love when that happens! :)

I combined the images of the mittens from Winter Wishes with the clothespin and triple string images from Heartfelt Mix. The sentiment was stamped on a die cut from the All Occasion Label Die and then trimmed to use just the top. I like doing this.

The edges were painted with an acrylic paint dabber, which reminded me of the wood floor in the Tuesday Trigger picture. The finished size of this card is 6-3/4 by 3-3/4. Instead of mailing this one, I think I'll tuck it in a little package to a friend.

I hope you all are enjoying the rush of the holidays. I just wish I could get something crossed off my list!

Have a great day!
