Waltzingmouse Secret Santa Revealed!

This past December - I participated in the Waltzingmouse Secret Santa run in the WMS forum, in the Stamping Room under Stamping Chat.  Everyone who signed up got the name of a person to be Secret Santa to by sending them a card they made using Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Today I'm sharing the Christmas card I sent and the one I received!

Here is the card I sent to Kim Heggins who I was Secret Santa to.  I used stamps from Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers.  Inside the card was stamped   Been good??!

And then I received a card in the mail and found out my Secret Santa was Katie Gehring.  She sent me this beautiful Christmas Tree card.  I just love how she cut out her tree on a panel and stamped all these little stamps from Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy on her card base and laid the tree panel over it. The banner sentiment is perfectly placed, don't you think?!  AND she wrote me a lovely note inside as well!   Thank you Katie!
All of the Secret Santa cards are being linked over at the Waltzingmouse Blog today -  let's go check them out!  We can get some ideas for this year's Christmas Cards !?!?!   It's never too early to start right!?!

Julia I adore those little gingerbread men! They look fabulous! I love the red on the tag and the embossing. The card you received is brilliant too - so clean looking and fun with the window!

Both cards are great. How interesting, both of you used an image of a gingerbread.

Kim Heggins said...

Julia, the card you sent me is just simply amazing and even more beautiful in person. The cookies in the cookie jar looked good enough eat! Thank you for the amazing card.

Oh, Julia, your red ribbon card is a blue ribbon winner, for sure! I never think to stamp and then emboss the texture, but it is such a cool effect. Katie's tree cut out and banner are inspired, too! This was a fun swap.
