Waltzingmouse December Pajama Party

Are you joining the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party today? I know.. I've been having a bit of trouble remembering it too. Things are back on track at Waltzingmouse, and now I need to get my act together too. I even bought a new calendar for the new year! Its really simple, I just have to write myself a reminder.. old age and all that Lol! Claire posts the event on the Waltzingmouse blog on the 1st of every month letting us know exactly what the challenges are. On the 14th of the month the challenges go live. And there are always some great prizes to be had - so it's really worth the effort!

Here's the challenges for this month.   If you didn't mark your calendar you can always play along with the Bedtime Story for another chance to win.  The link up stays open for 24 hours and you can get all the details here.

1. Put up the Tree Make a 3D paper tree. I had a quick look on Pinterest and I've spotted these lovely inspiration pieces:

2. Deck the Halls  - Create an Ornament for the tree.

3. Old Pajamas - Make a project using any of your older Waltzingmouse Christmas sets - I'm going to ask some of the DT to play along with us, we're going to dig out our Country Labels 4 sets
Here's my "old pajamas" all so comfortable and near and dear!    I thought some non traditional colors - aqua blue and hot pink might be fun for my Country Labels 4!
4. Bedtime Story Sketch - Here is sketch no.9 - yep, that could be a tree shape.... Go ahead and create now - and your card will be ready to link up when we open the PJ party on the 14th! Like the other challenges links for this challenge will remain open for 24 hours, so you will still have time to play on the night!
OK so you see a tree!  I see a little birdie!  I used the Warm Fuzzies set with the Country Labels 4 that I really enjoyed working with.  The Spellbinder Nestie Labels from Waltzingmouse were the thing that attracted me to Waltzingmouse in the first place.  That was in the old days when matching stamps and dies - and swoon.. window dies... were a brand new idea!  Look how far we've come!  The concept is a winner and these are still my "go to" stamps whenever I'm creating!
I hope you have a little time to play tonight - if you don't get distracted by all the other wonderful designs linked up!  LOL!  Big hugs and warm winter wishes to you!
