I’m back today to share another Baby, It’s Cold Outside project for the ABC Toys & Crafts DT Challenge.  Who doesn’t think of warm mittens when it’s cold outside?!  I know I do!!  In fact, I wish I’d had a sweet pair like this Saturday night when I was freezing my bootie off at the Fiesta Bowl!!  Yes, kids, it’s been really, really cold here in AZ the past few days.  I’m hoping that the cold temps are short lived because I’m ready to get back to warmer temperatures.


But I digress . . . back to my project.  I die cut the mittens using the Nested Mittens Shapeabilities - one set out of red felt, and one set out of white cardstock.  I then embossed the white mittens using my fave Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (no craft collection should be without that baby!)  The circle was cut using the Lacey Circle Nestabilities, and the white strip was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder that I had in my stash.  Add some buttons and yummy baker’s twine and you’ve got yourself a fun little winter note for a sweet friend!


So, have you created some projects for the Baby, It’s Cold Outside challenge?  You have three weeks to create something, so we’d love to have you join in on the fun!!  You can find all the deets by clicking on the blinkie below. 




Oh, and did I tell you that ABC Toys & Crafts has all new DISCOUNTED prices – all the time?!!  You really should check it out.


That’s it for me today, kids.  I’m cropping with friends tomorrow, so I plan to have more crafty goodness to share with you this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Your visits mean the world to me!
