You Warm My Heart

I thought I was on cruise control this morning when I had completed three round trips to the swim club to shuttle kids to and from practice and picked up our Christmas tree, when I got the call that the tree removal guys had hit the water main in front of new house-dooh! Instant derailment. Our neighbors must hate us now because they had to shut off water to the entire street while they get it fixed-yikes! I will have to make some special Christmas cookies to make up for this!

OK, finally onto my card for the day~ This card may look like a repost of the one from yesterday, but it is actually a MIM (More is More) version of that cure little bear. After I made the first one, I realized what things I would change/add, so I decided to make a more embellished version and put it out to you all to vote which one you like better.

Changes: the plaid pattern was sized well for his shirt, but it was too small for the base of the card, so I sized the digital paper to 6x6; layers were stitched together; bear was cut out and layered onto light plaid oval for additional layer; added multilayer snowflake with chunky glitter, rhinestones and sparkly ribbon; changed greeting.

Some more stitching and Glimmer Brads were added to the inside as well as a different greeting. These cards just show how a little "more" makes a big difference!

Have a great day!
