Verve Sneak Peeks, Day 1 ~ Winter Mittens

Good morning! Can you stand it? It's ANOTHER release from Verve! That will make TWO releases in ONE MONTH! Is Julee CRAZY??? Heck no, she just knows we love our Verve and she's just so sweet she goes and gives us TWO releases:) Gotta love her!


Today we're sneaking a few a couple different sets so make sure you get around to all the Diva's blogs so you can see it all! I'm sharing a card made with Winter Mittens!


The background paper is actually from a digital kit I bought from The Sweet Shoppe but I forgot which kit it is. I'll come in and edit this post when I find it.
I decided to keep the layout kinda simple because I really wanted to find a way to showcase these adorable mittens! I stamped them out and then cut the mittens out and attached them with twine. I covered them in red flocking, don't you love how it looks? They look all fuzzy and warm:) I added a couple Pure Poppy buttons to finish them off. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set, I just love this one!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the diva's have created for you today! Also, you want to comment on all the blogs for your chance to win one of the sets we're peeking today!

Head on over to the Verve Blog if you get lost or want any additional details about today's sets and the release specifics! 

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow with more!
