New Mittens ~ Karen's Sketch with a Verve Twist

Hey, everyone....how's it going? Today's card was a quick one...I haven't been home much these past few days. I've been sitting with my mom and spending lots of time with her. I needed a little break so I wanted to make this card for Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch and the Verve contest going on over at the Verve blog. My card is inspired by the gorgeous gloves my bonus son (my term for stepson) gave me for Christmas... aren't they fun? This card turned out pink and blue again!! I'll blame it on the dp this time!! I think Aimes was right when she said I'm heading for Valentines with all the pink!! There are 2 tiny pearls on the cuff of each glove and the band under the ribbon is embossed with the cuttlebug snowflake folder. That little guy has had a lot of use this season!! He's like swiss dots, but for winter. I was hoping that watercolouring would work on the mittens, but it's a bit sloppy, er, whimsical!! LOL Should've gone with some paper piecing I think. Hope you are all well...talk to you soon :)

You're going to be stylin' with those wonderful pink gloves with a touch of bling just for you :D Fun snowflake DP and the pink and blue and red is a great combo. Guest room is almost empty LOL and hopefully I will be able to tackle the light box here shortly too. Off to go ice skating tonite with the kids - will be good to get some exercise and burn off a few calories!

It's not sloppy at all!! It's a beautifully subtle shade of pink - much like those gorgeous gloves!
Love the term 'bonus son' - so sweet!
Just dipping the toe into the
Valentines cards so far I see ;D
Hugs,

Those gloves are so perfectly you! Your card is right on, too...wonderfully wintery and (in my thoughts), perfectly colored! Beautiful work!

How adorable are those pink mittens?! This is such a sweet, simple card, and I love it. That snowflake punch was perfect for this card, too.
