Warm and Toasty!

The first time I saw these mittens I thought "they just belong around a mug of hot cocoa!"
So they finally are and here's the card. Just makes you want to brew up a cup, doesn't it?

Once again I tore the edges of Whisper White card stock and embossed it with Northern Flurry before popping it up on Crumb Cake card stock.

The delightful mug is stamped in Gumball Green with Early Espresso "cocoa" steaming inside!
Real Red mittens embossed with miniature reindeer are accented with Gumball Green Sweater Trim for a cozy feel.

Both stamp sets have coordinating punches to make creating simple.

And the warm and fuzzy trim?

Now here's something extra fun about this stamp set and punch! How many ways could you use those borders? And look what an amazing person at SU! came up with for the mitten toppers! Turned upside down and embossed and you're ready for spring!

Here' what it took to create this little love note. The leaves are the heart punch cut in half.

These designs are just incredible Penny! Love the sweater trim on the mittens and it does make them "homey" like you said! The embossed reindeer were meant to be on those mittens!
Love your flowers as well using the mittens top! Clever girl!:)
