Bright copper kettles

...and warm woollen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favourite things as my card demonstrates!!

 It's my As You Like It Challenge DT card

and our theme this fortnight is Favourite Film or Song and WHY?

I love films so it wasn't an easy decision but one of my all time favourites has to be  The Sound Of Music and I pride myself on my  performance of Climb Every Mountain (the men and animals are NOT so keen!!).  However, my card was inspired by "My Favourite Things"


hence the "warm woollen mittens" which were a prize from Robyn's Fetish some time ago.
I used Promarkers to colour the mittens to compliment the Maja Design papers. I used Whitewash cardstock for the mat and a SB snowflake doused in peewee glitter. The sentiment was from a Woodware set and the die cut tag from a Clearly Besotted set.
