Mitten Smitten

Welcome to this Thursday's installment of the 
UNITY STAMP CO HIP HOP
It's Brown Thursday and Unity is offering tons of specials...here is just one
 Check out the Unity Blog...lots more happening!
 What is Brown Thursday?  Why, it's the Thursday before Thanksgiving,
dontcha know?
How.fun.

**You should be arriving here from Robyn's Blog**
And be sure to comment as you go...$20 gift certificates will 
be awarded to three lucky commentors!

With the theme being "Brown Thursday" we were asked to craft with Kraft!
When I received these adorable mitten stamps (Big Mitten Background), my initial thought was 
invitations.  I first formatted and printed out the information using Paint program
and then stamped around it :)

To make my mitten even cozier, I machine stitched around the edge.
This stamp is the perfect size for the smaller 4x5.5" envelopes.
There are so many ways to dress up these adorable mittens...oh, and how about
using them for journaling blocks for your scrapbook pages?  Ornaments? Yes, please!

And package tags?  Sure!  Great project for the little helpers in your home too :)
I pulled the To: From: and scrolled heart { stamps from the October Kit of the Month.
 For $1.47 I found the package of (36 count) holly confetti at Wal-Mart! 
A sweet and inexpensive way to dress up your package tags or invites♥

**Now, let's head over to Shemaine's Blog** 
Here is a full list of the hop, just in case something goes awry along the way!
I hope that you have a wonderfully inspired time hopping...I'm excited to
see all of the fabulous Brown Thursday projects weeeeeee!
