Winter Holiday





                  Hi ya all!  Can you believe it is November?  November 1st means a fun  challenge at the  RRR Blog .  This time it has a "winter holiday" theme with ribbons..of course.  I love mittens.... they bring to mind home, warmth, and childhood of course...and they def. symbolize winter.  Which is just around the corner.  I decided to make some oversize chipboard tags.  I covered them in some of the new Authentique christmas line and stitched around the edges of each mitten.   I added some fun digital images along with some chipboard stars I glittered up with tarnished silver.   I added paper fringe and some cute stamped tags and of course topped it off with some ribbons .  I used bright red and moss green seambindings.   I also wound some Christmas twine through the tags so they can attach to a package or hang from a knob.  I have had fun tucking in berries into my ribbons...so many lovely choices from Michaels.  Make sure to go check out the other girls projects...so much inspiration.  Several new designers on board as well!  Hope you enjoy and thanks for letting me share!    Hugs, cherry

I love the mittens. What a great idea for hanging on a peg board. Wondering if you made your trim. UMMM...I need to get out my sewing machine.

Hi Cherry! Love the mittens. I've been wanting to make some for a few years...thanks to Lisa Pace!

Those cute bingo Santa cards are on my Pinterest. I think they were originally from Jack and Cat Curio ( last year) ? Not sure?
Thank you for visiting my little blog... I was so excited when I saw your message.
