Merry Mittens:



Oh Friday - I will give you a big hug *HUGS*  Aren't Fridays just the best?!?

Between staging and cleaning our house to be put on the real estate market, I am trying to get in to my craftroom a few times a week.

I went with CAS, you know, the keep word being simple.  I would like to say that this card took 10 minutes.  It didn't.  I searched high and low for polka dot papers.  I finally found some bits the size of three of my fingers put together but had to find a way to put them through my printer to print off my digis.  I finally figured out that if your paper is too small, my printer won't accept it, so I taped my small piece to a big piece and in the end, had a larger piece of paper.  Long story right?  It took longer in real life LOL.

I found these cutie-tootie freebies at Paper Smooches:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps
Papers:  MME
Cardstock:  DCWV, Recollections
Bits/Bobs: Recollections pearls
Tools: sewing machine, EK Success Corner punch


I created this card for the following challenges:  Merry Monday - colours, CAS(E) this Sketch - sketch







Have a fantastic Friday!

Fab card, and I know what you mean about small pieces of card. I also use tape to put them onto larger sheets just to print onto. I usually print onto the large piece first so I know where to position my iddy biddy pieces!! LOL
Love the mittens.
Hugs
