Keeping Warm and Toasty

While I was browsing some of my favorite blogs this week,  I saw some crafters who had created some lovely winter mittens.  It reminded me that I also had this die-cut from Papertrey Ink, so I pulled it out and decided to create a mitten of my own.  Since I live in Minnesota, gloves and mittens are all too familiar for me.  I've also been having a lot of fun taking my photos outside where I can use the snow-frosted trees as a background, and my snow-dusted deck railing in the foreground.  It has made for some really cute photos.
I used a combination of Crate Paper an October Afternoon patterned papers, some burlap trim, lace, pom-pom trim, and velvet.  I also used a wooden stamped snowflake, a resin candy cane, an October Afternoon journaling card for the sentient, and a Crate Paper Santa chipboard piece.  I thought that the word believe went nicely with the Santa image.
I'm entering my mitten in these challenges I found where it will fit.  I'm always on the hunt for more challenges where I can enter my projects:
Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge - #26 - Happy Holidays With Photo Inspiration
Word Art Wednesdays Challenge - #163 - Anything Goes
Inspired By Stamping - #89 - Color Inspiration (the blue is very subtle - it's on the snowflake)

Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes
I appreciate your visit today.  Keep warm - put on your mittens!
