Mitten & Button

It's new release week at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and there are four adorable images going out! Today I'm using a couple Animal Friends, Mitten and Button, to create a warm holiday scene next to the Hearth & Home fireplace from Make it Crafty.

These two images were inspired by a few animal friends of my own - our little Ginger was a recent addition to our home but there was already an image of that name so I named her after my childhood pet dog, Mitten. We couldn't have someone getting a puppy for Christmas without a kitten in the mix too so I drew Button after another past companion.

The Hearth & Home fireplace is from Make it Crafty and gave me another opportunity to color a fire. I wanted to focus on the inside of the fire pit as I wasn't sure how to color it so this time I looked up images in Google and found a good image to reference. It's not exact but still turned out nicely.

I colored each of the images large so creating the journal page would be quick and easy. I covered the back with decorative paper, wrapped a large ribbon around and positioned my images. Then added some MiC chippies, couple of pearls and lastly a few snowflake buttons - finished! :D
