brrr!

It's gone COLD.
(Well, cold for England anyway).
So this card puts my feelings into stamp and sticker form...
brrr!
I used a digital snowflake from THIS Hero Arts kit to create the background - just recoloured it to a Sepia shade, then pasted lots of times and printed directly onto kraft card.  Easy.  The little mittens are from THIS cute HA set.  Silk ribbon and twine are from The Ribbon Girl.
Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.  Have a lovely day. :)
Happy Nearly Friday!

Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes, Lucy. I adore this card! The background is perfect and those mittens are so cute! Perfect sentiment too! We woke up to 5 degrees (Fairenheit) this morning, here in Minnesota! BRRRR for sure!

What sweet little mittens. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we could use those today. I do have today off for Thanksgiving, but must work tomorrow. I am looking forward to the weekend too. Stay warm.

Love the pop of the blue mittens on the kraft background! I really need to get playing with some digital stamps, the background really looks like it was handstamped!!

I'm flying out to England from California on Saturday to spend 3 weeks with my family- I've been thinking it's cold here, don't think I'm prepared for what's waiting for me weather wise out there lol!

Very cute, Lucy. Sorry you are cold :o(
Our temp here in South Texas just plummeted to 42 F from 80's yesterday so I am feeling it a bit nippy today too.

Thank you for the lovely Thanksgiving wishes! I adore this card. I never would've thought of making the image sepia to create the watermark look. I'll definitely have to try that. Awesome!

I agree--it is Brrr here, too (in Maryland, USA). Thanks for the great card; I love the design and the colors.
