WMSC74 - November 11-19-11 - Be Good


#74 Sketch
Hi!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We did a little yard work - raking leaves, and putting away anything that can't withstand the cold weather that's coming.  Sunday was our lazy day watching DVD's and eating fast food.  This week will be a busy one with the Thanksgiving holiday so any crafting I plan on getting done will have to be done soon.  I got all my grocery shopping done today - tomorrow is house cleaning.  I won't have my daughter around to help - all her friends are coming home from school for the holiday and I expect she'll want to spend her free time with them.

I'm getting an early start on the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge this week.  I told you sometimes sketches talk to me.  This one said "TAG".  I love Christmas because it's a great excuse to put extra bling and sparkle on almost anything.  I don't work too much with glitter and working on this tag I figured out why........ IT'S MESSY!!!!!!  I have glitter everywhere!!! Even on my ink pad!! It took me a while to figure out why my stamped images have spots missing.  What a mess!   Maybe if I do it more often I'll figure out a better way to do it.  For now the glitter is back on the shelf!
 
Since the Santa image is casual I thought I would use more fun colors - pink, purple and green.  I even threw on a few little jingle bells!  I hope you like it and that you are finding time in your busy schedule to play along.  If you'd like the details you can find them here:  http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/

Have a great day!

Jeanne

How do you come up with these color schemes? They are so original and fantastic, Jeanne! I am embracing my glittery self lately, too! I only used to use the occasional Stickles, and now I am addicted to the sparkly stuff it seems. Your ribbon is amazing, and I love the detailed sparkling die cuts that perfectly coordinate. Oh...and your coloring, WOW! And my motto this Christmas..."This card should jingle" hee!

This is so bright and pretty and I love those spellbinders you used for this one. That Santa image is my very favorite from Around Christmastime and that gorgeous bow really makes your tag take on a very glamorous look.
