Happy Saturday! I am hoping for a quiet weekend of catch up time (isn't that always my wish?) It seems like every time I get started on something there is an interruption lately! I've been working on a few things behind the scenes and should have more exciting news for you soon! Don't you just love a secret? Me neither! Ahhh.. we will both have to wait... but soon ... I promise!!
In my typical Saturday morning fashion I will be checking for the new sketch and winners at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Well how do you like this beauty of a design from our very own Chupa? I love her style and great use of color - I always feel happy after I leave her blog Random Acts of Creativity and I am totally loving this sketch! Since it's December 1st I wanted to ring in the month with a Christmas card. I tried to CASE Chupa a bit and use lots of color on this one - and of course lots of little accents and embellishments for our viewing pleasure! Here's some close ups!
This was my first time using this set that I got a while back. It was lots of fun piecing together the lid and the jar as well as stamping the little sentiment inside the tag! I couldn't resist adding that bitty reindeer - it's from the ornament in the 2011Holiday Ornaments set. I just taped off the image inked it up and then removed the tape before stamping.
I hope you find some quiet time too this weekend and that I will see you at WMSC! Be good!
