Ho! Ho! Ho!

Merry Christmas!!! {bellowed in my deepest voice} Made an ornament using Waltzingmouse Stamps {recent delivery at my house... Oh Happy Day!!} for the WMS sketch challenge this week and Claire has a contest on the WMS blog!! Now, honestly I LOVE my WMS stamps but, the weekly sketch challenge has a random draw for a free, Yes that's what I said- FREE WMS set and the tag contest on the blog- for a little Christmas Cheer is a random drawing for 4 stamps sets!!

I didn't have any WMS Xmas stamps- until this week of course- and one of my favs included a silhouette Santa complete with a pipe!! Here's my "diddy"



I went oval as I think it sets off the image!! That gorgeous Santa image is from Santa's Coming To Town and the sentiment is from Nutcracker Sweet. Used Authentique Wonder papers and my scallop is the crochet lace and pleated ribbon. Added a couple buttons and some Jingle Bells!!

Here's the sketch-- I went oval for the image!!

Oh that's a sweet tag, Vickie! I just love the die cut that you used, and the lovely sentiment banner over the lace. I am thinking that every card I make needs bells these days, and your rusty ones are the best!

All kinds of good stuff happening here! I love the deeper colors you chose (they go great with those awesome rusty bells!). And that pleated ribbon is just the perfect touch under the sentiment!
