hat and mittens

Hi Everyone, hope all your preparations are well under way or finished, I am thankfully, except food shopping which I think I will leave until Sunday, probably when most will be doing it ugh! I'm working Monday and Tuesday so can't do it then, so Saturday or Sunday it is.  Only a couple of cards left of people I forgot!!!! so bad of me.

Anyway, a card for you today, you know I am a fan of Elizabeth Dulemba, well she is asking for Christmas cards for her gallery, so thought I would oblige.  Here is my contribution.  I chose her hat and mittens, seeing as a few friends "over the pond" have deep snow and we are getting a bit colder too.

I have decoupaged the image and used tiny eyes to accentuate the eyes on the mittens,  I paper pieced it all from a digi kit "Jovie" by Gina Cabrera. I used Atomic Cupcake's chalk action in PS to edge the snowflake paper, then cut a few of the image to get layers. I added buttons from the kit too, but added shadows to them rather than cut them out. A real cheery card as is the message, hope old neighbours will enjoy it.
