Warm Winter Comforts

I hope everyone had a fun weekend doing what you love most! We did a bit of house hunting and spent time with friends. I also had a bit of time to craft, and craft I did, with my new Unity stamps! Yesterday was the first time I had a chance to ink up two of my favourites from the October Kit. Today I picked two more favourites to play with which resulted in a simple yet sparkly holiday card. I love those cozy mittens and the sentiment is so fun. The scripted warm really makes it charming, doesn't it? The lace frame is one of my favourites from the July Kit and you may remember it from such cards as For You, je t'aime, Joy & Happiness, Little Dinky Doughnut Chicken Man, and Three Wishes. It works so well for those doily moments. Tomorrow I will have another Unity card for you with the same pairing but with a completely different look. Thanks for stopping by!

I love those mittens! Red and green always works so well with Kraft for a Christmas card and the sentiment adds a lot of movement to the card.
