winter wishes

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I didn't go over to take care of my grandsons after school today. My son made some other plans. So it gave me a day to decorate and do some stamping.

My card today is for the contest being held over on the mojomonday blog. Julee supplied another great sketch to work with. Also, back in October she gave a free digi-image. It was the mittens and the winter wishes words. I decided to use them on this card.

I wanted it to be a birthday card for my sister, but then I used the cuttlebug embossing folder with these Christmas words. I know that people who have a December birthday don't like getting Christmas themed cards. They just like celebrating their birthday. My husband is one of them. So the fate of this card is yet to be determined (lol).

I used stampin-up always artichoke, rich razzleberry, pink pirouette and basic grey eskimo kisses designer paper.

I cuttlebugged the pink pirouette circles and for the mittens I paper pieced them with the designer paper. On the mitten cuffs, I added a little flower soft to give the appearance of fur.

I used a new tool to make my bow. It's called a bow easy. It makes tying bows super easy. gina k has a great video tutorial on how to use it.

Well, that's it for today my friends. Before I close I have a prayer request for all who are reading this post. A good friend of mine just had some horrible news today. Her nephew was found dead in his apartment. Please pray for the family during this time of grief.
