Challenge - Winter Warmth

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Hope everyone is keeping warm with this cold weather we are having.  This past weekend we had 12 below in the morning - I wanted to stay under the covers a little bit longer than I did!  But it is good snuggling weather :). 

Today, I am co-hosting a challenge on Cooking with Cricut.  Our theme is Winter Warmth.  Create something warm, hot chocolate, coffee, tea, hats, mittens - you get the idea.  So I chose to use Winter Frolic cricut cartridge to make my card.
I cut the beaver at 3 3/4 inches and faux stitched on his hat and scarf.  I had some red stitched ribbon that I thought went well with the scarf and it gave it a little bit of texture.  Embossed the white cardstock with the devine swirls from cuttlebug and then inked around the edges and again faux stitched in black.

The sentiment "smile" came from K Andrew's art stamps.  This one is from the "Positive Thoughts"
 K Andrew Designs
I love these stamps, and I love a great value, I have to share...K Andrew is coming out with her new Valentine sets and if you order now and use LINDAFREESHIP, you get free shipping!!  Now that makes me, warm and fuzzy LOL !!

Keep warm everyone!
