holly jolly christmas...

Is that song in your head now?  LOL...okay 3 for 3 walks in November...I really haven't had an excuse NOT to walk since we've really lucked out in our weather the past couple of days:)

Havin' some fun with Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather...tons of stitching on this puppy...


The sentiment is ala A Muse...the buttons & kraft are PTI, the bakers twine from Karen...everything else is Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather...

I was inspired by Get Sketchy #62:


I'm at it again over at Cosmo Cricket...this time for the December Guest DT...it's by random draw and you can enter as many Mitten Weather Cards during the month of November:)


..remember, I said I'm a persistent whipper snapper...
