Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - For My Teacher

Can you believe it's Saturday again and time for another inspiring Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

Today I made a gift card/tag for teacher and I flipped the sketch. When I saw this design I immediately thought of this holly ornament in the Around Christmastime set
After I colored the ornament with my Copics I thought it looked like a lovely Figgy Pudding! I added gold sticky pearls to the DP as well as the ornament. The sentiment is from Frame It and the little holly is from Bountiful Basket Additions. The ornament and sentiment are popped up on foam tape.
So come along and join us in the sketch challenge this week - you don't have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps but if you have some please do!

Check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch.

Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 12/16/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Winners are announced each Saturday along with the new sketch challenge.
And don't forget the Waltzingmouse 12 Days of Christmas! Bonnie is up today and Lynn will have an inspiration for us on Sunday!

Hi Julia ~ Sorry I have not posted in so long...work and the holidays have taken a toll on me...I made handmade gifts for all of my friends and family and because of that I have not had the time to post on my blog or to visit. Your last 5 posts are perfectly lovely, as always. TFS!!!
