He's making a LIST....

He's checking it TWICE!!

Ahh. the holidays are in full swing... and I'm definitely behind!! Haven't bought the first present this year {well maybe some cyber stamp shopping for myself!!-- That's sounds bad-- really they just don't know where to go and what to pick--- I'm just helping them out, LOL!!} The list is ready with everyone's wishes and this WE my daughter and I will get it done. In the mean time, I made a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Stamps sketch challenge by the most talented Chupa!!

LOVE this WMS set... Santa's Coming To Town... that silhouette image is one of my favs and the sentiments are fabulous!! Used the Opera Tags set along with the matching matching WMS Spellbinder die. The background star is from Yonder Star stamped in crumbcake onto vanilla/cream. Distressing with TH Antique Linen. Stamped the Opera Tag image twice, cut one out and popped on top for added dimension. A couple glitter stars and twine bow to finish.

Claire, the Head Moustress, made this card in September
and obviously, it has been on my mind ever since she posted it!! Gorgeous!!

Chupa's sketch...

The good news side... WMS is starting to ship from the US. For those of you in the US that don't want to have to pay international shipping prices.... perfect!! Currently, I believe, the selection is limited so when going to the store look for this logo...
You really need to check out the WMS blog here - for all the details!!

Happy middle of the week and think of me when I am doing all my Christmas shopping in one weekend... Blitz (an overwhelming all-out attack) shopping!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

What a unique and awesome card!! I'm glad to hear about the US shipping, too! Good luck with your shopping...I've mostly done online shopping...a few clicks and I'm done with over half of my list! I'm off tomorrow and hope to get quite a few things checked off my "to do" list (like address and mail all these cards I've made). So...are you on the naughty list or nice list - lol?
