Woolen Mittens On A Snowy Morning

Hello Everyone
If any of you joined in my recent Giveaway then it probably meant that the Oxford Impressions Woolen Mittens stamp set caught your eye. It is a gorgeous stamp set, brimming over with nostalgic images for this time of the year, although there are stamps that I will be inking up beyond Christmas.
One of the stamps which particularly caught my eye is the stamp with one simple word, snow. Sometimes this is the way of it for me, it can be the smaller, what some would say, slightly insignificant stamps that catch my eye in a set.
onelynnemoncrieffIt has a gorgeous naive style to it, as though a child has written the word.  For some reason it brought to mind name labels, when a child writes their name on a fabric label to ensure that everyone knows that item belongs to them!

I opted for the softest of pinks and browns, with watercolour paper panels painted with various PaperArtsy Frescos.

Just goes to show!
Many thanks for your visit.

    Oh Lynne, the mitten is adorable with the child-like word and the beautiful stencilling (another stencil for my long wish list!) and the card is beautiful! I share your non-excitement of Christmas, although I do love to see a beautiful tree with presents under and I love to see the grandkids open their gifts even though the true spirit of Christmas is the furthest thing from their minds these days!! Hugs, Anne xx

    Oh so gorgeous Lynne and so is the accompanying card. The stencil you used is beautiful! Your blog shows just how much more beautiful the mitten really is after just having seen it on fb.

    Sooooo lovely Lynne – perfect in every way. Makes me think of my Mama – she would have loved this for her all white tree!!! That dinky stencil looks lovely on the fabric and love the rikrak and crochet piece too. Just beautiful. j

    Dear Lynne so very adorable is your new mitten, lovely with the gorgeous snowflake stencil from Thats Crafty, and the wonderful snow -stamp, also I love your added dangle, you know me, lol- it looks as if you painted the bells , and I like it very much. Your beautiful card showing the sweet winter girl is wonderful with the panel with text and your stamped word, AND the hanging mittens, so sweet. You always makes my eyes smile when I see your playful and gorgeous creations, sweetest friend.

    Love your delicate mitten Lynne, both on wool and on the card by pair… This is just so beautiful, it has to be shown as you write so well!!.. 🙂
    And your stenciling is exquisite too, great idea to add these snowflakes in transparency on this ornament. Love the little word Snow too, really fab here

    Deep sigh of pleasure! Utterly enchanting… I love the snowflake detailing on the mitten – I’ll have to look in to that stencil! – and the little scribbly word is delightful. The subtle delicate colour tones of the card are beautiful too. What an utterly charming post!

    Both creations and your post are uber gorgeous Lynne. As a lucky owner of one of your mittens I can attest to their beauty. Ditto with card. The stencil arrived yesterday from Thats Crafty – just trying to find time now to use… Nicola x
