Christmas Oven Mitts

My dear supportive husband strikes again.  I was showing him my card, telling him how much I loved it and he joked that he can't understand why I like the oven mitts so much.  When I looked outraged, he even pointed out that the stamped pattern on them looked like the one on our oven mitts.  But hey, they were very cute and at least we'd always be able to find them hung on the tree like that.  What a guy.  Despite my husband, I love this card.  I always love red and white together and this is a wonderfully simple card.  The mitts are my Spellbinder's die.  I then stamped them with my basketweave background from Mark's Finest Papers and distressed the edges with TH's Fired Brick.  I'm pretty sure the pine boughs are from Marianne's Designs.  The sentiment is from Gina K's sadly retired Fanciful Tags set.  I got even with DH putting on the pointsetta. He'd gone to read and I pulled out my hammer and old grommet set and made sure I was very loud punching the whole for the brad.  I could do this since dear kiddies are at Grandma's.  I think he knew what I was doing because he winked at me.
