Twas the night before...


I have been itching to ink up these mittens from the new "Brrr" set from The Saltbox Studio. They are small and sweet and easy to color. I decided to use a winter set today because yesterday we woke up to A LOT of snow. Our poor willow trees couldn't take the snow and we have some broken branches. Not a single leaf has fallen from them or even turned yellow, yet, so you can imagine how much weight was on them. So...in the spirit of snow, I couldn't resist using these mittens today. I decided to use a black dotted notecard from A muse and it looked like nighttime and snow, so I chose the sentiment from the new "Holiday Lights" set. I added a little cross-stitching to the bottom for interest. I wanted to add a few buttons, but restrained myself. LOL!
Football is officially over. We had our last tournament on Saturday in the rain and hail. We were all very COLD!!!! They won all 3 of their games and took home the championship. Even though Football has consumed our lives since the end of July, I am really going to miss it.
