Warm Wishes

i’m creating christmas cards as quickly as possible; i can hardly believe how close the mailing deadline is.

i started this card by freehand painting a plaid on watercolour paper with winsor & newton watercolour paints and then die cutting the frame with the MFT blueprints 29 die set. the bear from the my favorite things cool day stamp set and die cut mittens were painted with the same paints; i stamped a snowflake from the same set on the mittens and added some stickles. the larger sentiment is from the my favorite things hand lettered holiday set.

i’d like to submit this card to these challenges:
Virginia’s View: Watercolor/Stamp a Plaid
ABC Christmas – W for Wishes
Sweet Stampers #1 – Christmas
Stamping Sensations – Christmas Greetings
Noor! Designs UK Winter
A Blog Named Hero – Holiday Themed
Happy Little Stampers Christmas November – Watercolour

thanks for popping by.
