Warm Wishes

Morning Friends!
How is your Friday going?  We had torrential rain here at about 8am, but within the hour the sun had come out and it was so bright that I had to close the blinds just so I could actually see my computer screen!

It's definitely grown chillier in the last week or so, though - so this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge is spot on. 
 At least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.
Warm Woollen Mittens
We'd like you to make a card featuring some Winter Clothing - it doesn't have to be mittens, it could be Boots, Gloves, Scarves etc.  And if you are in the Southern Hemisphere and just stepping into Summer, maybe you'll be thinking more along the lines of swimsuits as we draw closer to Christmas!
I struggled so much with this card. I know it doesn't look like it.  If I'  had time I'd have started over, but this was already my second attempt and I'd run out of crafting time.  Might have helped if I hadn't left it till Thursday, I suppose!

There's embossing and lots of glittery snowflakes and an ancient Bosskutz mitten die, which is cute, but I'd rather have made a larger mitten - I thought I had a bigger die that this one.but apparently not!
