BBTB2 Mitten Challenge

Another challenge for BBTB2. This time, Mittens from the  'Joys of the Season' cartridge.
I am a Christmas fool, but wanted to really challenge myself to not work on the holiday just yet. I came up with a few ideas, ' wonderfall '.. mittens holding leaves, then there was a card ... YOU WARM MY HEART, and the last idea which I really, really wanted to pull off was, a layout for my neice,
                                   ' Hot Cocoa.... its finger mitten good. '
I have it all done... but can not find back ground paper for the layout that suits me.
Ughhh ever happen to you?
So... time running was running out to enter and It looks like it will be just the card.  I can always incorp. it into the layout at a later date.  ;)     So here is my card entry -
 ' You warm my heart ', and my sweet mittens holding a hot cup of cocoa.
 Additional cuts, the Cup is from Gypsy Wanderings and the mittens were adorned with a border from Elegant Cakes. Now... why my pom pom fringe is looking burgandy..and not hot pink is beyond me,  
Oh how this makes me long for October and cool Autumn nights.  Watching a football game that is!   enjoy :)
