Warm mittens

I am back with a card I made for my sister. Don't know if she has received it yet but some of the challenges I made it for are closing soon! 

My sister is an amazing knitter! She has knitted all kinds of complicated things for all kinds of different people. For Christmas she bought me some yarn (I got to choose) and helped me make a hat! Isn't she the sweetest?
So I thought these new-to-me stamps and dies would be perfect for her. Since the yarn I picked for my hat was grey and off-white I chose those colors for the card. Then, so it wouldn't look too blah, I added some blue accents. 





Stamps: MFT (background on card), Impression Obsession (background on mittens), Winnie & Walter (sentiment)
Dies: MFT (mittens)

Can't get over how realistic the knit on the mittens looks! Love your color combo. All the best for 2016 - especially health!

In den kalten Monaten stricke ich auch ganz gern, aber keine komplizierten Sachen. Es muss bei mir zügig gehen. Ok, Mützen habe ich auch schon gestrickt.
Deine Karte passt prima und Deine Schwester wird sich riesig freuen!!

Sure hope your sore throat felt better today. What a sweet sister you are to design this especially for your knitter. The mitten look so very realistic (and the card is definitely not blah, even though it's a subtle color). Liked the way you tied in the Nordic design border stamping with those cozy mittens, and bet your Sis will just adore this card. Looks pretty CAS to me! TFS & Hugs. Stay warm.

My mother tried to teach me to knit...after a million attempts, she gave up! I so envy people who can knit! This is such a pretty card, and perfect for your sister! Those mittens with the stitching are so precious, and I love the bits of blue you've added. I'm sure she'll love this card!!! I know I do! Bev

I LOVE your card Susanne. What a great card for a knitter in the winter. Reminds me of a C card I made with a knitted jumper on there. http://hettiecraftcz.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/funkie-junkie-christmas-jumpers.html
Here if you want to look!!
Thanks for calling over.

How gorgeous, Susanne ... those snuggly cosy mits are just delicious ... fabulous against that wonderful fair isle background stamping! Swooning at the colour combo ... grey and white with a pop of icy blue ... love it! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

How wonderful that your sister has shared her expertise with you; knitting a hat is impressive! I can do very basic knitting and did so, before this 'little' obsession took over! I should dedicate one evening a week to knitting, if only to make scarves. Your warm mittens card is perfect; the whispers of blue add a marvelous pop of colour! I know she loves this, as do I!
