Baby, It's Cold Outside!

It's Stephanie here bringing you our Jingle Belles prompt #6 (JB06)

This week we're taking our cue from another Christmas tune (what can I say ... Lauren & I love Christmas songs) ... Baby, It's Cold Outside ... which means, we're prompting you to make cards or tags that include ... scarves, mittens, hats, ear muffs ... or some fuzzy warm felt (or perhaps all of the above if you are so inclined).



my card features two Basic Grey jovial snowmen woolies
in scarves & hats
(which my husband said reminded him of Ren & Stimpy)
frolicking in a landscape awash with fuzzy felt snowflakes.
I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch and
a sticker sentiment from SRM Stickers.




lauren says, "i made this cute rudy reindeer by copying and enlarging an image from a piece of giftwrap to use as a pattern, and then basically "paper piecing" with different colors of felt instead of patterned paper (there's a step-by-step explanation of this on my personal blog); then i knitted him a tiny scarf! i also sewed some american crafts jumbo felt rick-rack onto my card, for good measure. only at the very end did i realize i had subconsciously used amy's gorgeous sketch from last week again-- but hey, it's a great sketch so why not?!"





Now it's time to see what kind of festive fun you can have with felt ... or mittens, hats, scarves or ear muffs ... take your choice ... and whatever you do, have fun with it and link your wonderful creations by 6pm EST on Wednesday, February 9th. If you don't have a blog, you can always upload your card to the Jingle Belles Flickr Gallery & link-up from there.

thanks for an "easy" challenge this week, since it WAS cold out here in Texas last week (and more snow expected Wednesday LOL)...loved the felt ideas, but couldn't get to the store to buy any, so hope you accept the dressed snowmen ;-)
