The Shabby Tea Room #151!

Hello friends and welcome to my bloggity blog today!  I'm thrilled to be here sharing a sweet little something I recently created for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #151 - 'Cute as a Button'!  I'm our host this week and I'm asking that we create a card or project using the COLORS FROM THE INSPIRATION PHOTO AND INCLUDE BUTTONS!

Our Tea Room sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and I created a sweet little mitten shaped gift filled with hot cocoa and marshmallows using their Winter Circle Sentiments: Warm Wishes!
I cut out a mitten shape from some scrap red cotton material and machine sewed around the edges with a zig-zag stitch.  I added a ruffle of the sweetest striped material and added some white pom-pom trim on top of that to look like snowballs!!  Three sweet buttons were added to the cuff. 

I created a pretty little nosegay using an aqua glittered paper flower with two pink velvet leaves, both from Prima.  The tag was stamped using a fun set from  Paper Sweeties called Stand Add-on 4

And there you have it, my friends!  A sweet little gift set - perfect for winter gift giving!!  I am completely smitten with this warm and cozy little mitten shaped pocket ... and I adore hot cocoa with marshmallows -- yummy!!
