BBTB2/JOTS/Mitten

Happy Monday.... it's a hot hot July in Arizona, but that is to be expected. It was a pleasant challenge coming in from sweet Penny who is our hostess this week. She wanted a sort of Christmas In July theme and so she asked us to design from Joys Of The Season and to use the mitten cut. I had fun making this card although when I started out, I had no idea what I was going to do.

The mittens of various sizes are cut from JOTS and the title "Winter" came from Gypsy Wanderings. As always, I did a lot of embossing.

I added a wee bit of bling bling on the blue polka dotted mittens.
A blue jewel dots the i' on the title. And I love those decorative edge punches too.
I hung some small mittens on a clothesline.
We hope you will join in on our mitten challenge. Remember, you don't have to have the selected cartridge. You can create with mittens from any cartridge. We love to see your creations. Please make your project a new project and please mention on your blog that you have entered our BBTB2 mitten challenge. Often when I see a card linked to our blog and I go to that blog to leave a comment, there is no mention that the card was entered in the BBTB2 challenge.
