cold hands...warm heart...

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Card Patterns Sketch Challenge!


This week our fabulous sponsor is


This is the great sketch we got to work with:




I decided to play with the Mittens image...I'm steadily adding to my holiday card stash....


A huge shout out to my bloggie buddie Sherry...she passed along a bunch of papers {& blooms!}.   Today's patterned paper was part of the stash, Webster's Pages!  I love to paper piece...so the mittens have the contrasting papers...I topped off the card with Chocolate Delight Queen & Co pearls...

Make sure you pop over to the Card Patterns blog to see what the other gals designed!!!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
