WMSC126 - Sent with Love

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!

There you go again Jeanne...coming up with all kinds of little doo-dads to jazz up your card. NEVER would have thought to add that lace,twine and ribbon combo at the bottom of your focal point panel. How cute with the poinsettia, so sparkly and glittery. The cute little reindeer tab at the top also adds lots of interest and really balances the other circle stamp. Great idea.

Its gorgeous! I love paper piecing and you did a great job on this one. I like how you have been showing the picture of what you used. Your bow is gorgeous and love the poinsettia button. I don't keep secrets very well as you know.
