The prize winners will be announced on The {Stamps}of Life and The Twinery blogs on Wednesday November 16th.


Today's card attempts to capture the magic of the Christmas season, although it would be just as appropriate for any snowy winter day!  It features a pair of traditional bright Christmas green mittens hanging from a jingle-bell-embellished twine bow.  The mittens, from TSOL's Christmas2build, are colored with Copic markers, then adorned with a jeweled snowflake and Stickled sparkly cuffs.  A light sponging of the The Twinery's  peapod twine with tea dye distress ink helps its bright white match the creamier ivory tones of the designer paper, a scrap of Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly that was some of my favorite from last year.  The sentiment, from minis4circles, is stamped on one of several Spellbinder's snowflakes which were frosted with Stickles in two colors (frosted lace and eucalyptus).

From here, you're visiting Monique Hansen.  Can't wait to see what she's got to share with us!
