Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 116


Hello! I'm here again! I have one final post before the week is over. It's Saturday, so Welcome to Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 116! I hope you had a chance to join us in the last challenge. If not, we have a new one this week!

This week's sketch was inspired by none other than the head mousetress! :)

Since I've done several Halloween cards already, I thought I would make a Christmas card instead this week. It was great to pull out my Christmas stamp sets as I have not used them in a while.


I used Festive Foliage and Seasonal Remedies for this one. Every year I tell myself that I would start making my Christmas cards early. But every year I never do and I always end up buying cards. A card maker buying cards for Christmas! lol. 


Well, since I started this one, I might just make enough for this coming December. This is a pretty simple and clean card. I let the stamps speak for themselves. And I love this color combination! :) 


Anyway, I hope you'll be inspired to dust off you Christmas stamp sets and start making your Christmas cards early! Start with this sketch challenge! I'll see you over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! :)

  1. Absolutely gorgeous, Jean - the combination of the stripes and the pinecone/pine branch is wonderful - (could you reference that stamp here, please)! And congrats on being featured in the October CARDS magazine - loved the article, especially your tip about keeping a binder of sentiments - genius!!
