...a card...finally...


A wee little card inspired by how cold it's getting round here!!!

There hasn't been a lot of stamping time here this week, but today, tomorrow and maybe over the weekend, I'm on an enforced 'break' of sorts due to quite a serious strike by Postal workers in the UK, i might get to stamp!

All Folks ordering at the present time will most likely have a couple of days delay due to the strikes. It was meant to be over on Friday but it seems to be turning ugly already. If it's really looking nasty I will pop down to the border (an hour away) and post off international orders, most likely on Tuesday, as I have commitments between now and then. UK folk will not be so lucky as their orders have to go through Royal Mail. ugh.

I can only apologise for the inconvenience this will undoubtedly cause some folks, and hope for a quick end to it.

My card used stamps from the Sewing Box Christmas set. The wee mitts were paper pieced after I spotted them up with the polka dot stamp from the Off Beat backgrounds set, I used this for the backgrounds too. I love orange and red together - so cozy!! lol

I could just see these wee mitts made into hanging ornaments for a bitty tree...oooh...must run, have to make bitty ornaments!!

hope it tickles!

  8. I love this card! Fab colors! So sorry to hear of your postal trouble. A few years ago we had a UPS strike (the men in brown). UGH awful, but we did have the options of fed ex and Usps.
