Warm Wishes

Welcome, weekend! I'm glad it is Saturday.

Today is Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge day, and here is today's sketch:

Thursday was my Mother-in-law's birthday and today we're celebrating. I thought I'd use the sketch as inspiration for her card. Here's what I made.

I have been eyeing up this swag image since Nutcracker Sweet was released. I used it to create my background. I don't know what exactly it is about this image, but I just love it. So much potential in that little shape.. I want to stamp it in red next!

I thought Warm Wishes was a completely appropriate sentiment for a birthday - something a little different!

The sketch challenge will remain open until Thursday, 11:59 EST. You can link up your entry on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the new sketch next Saturday! Be sure to visit the blog and check out what the other DT members and Mischief Makers have created for the sketch challenge!

Have a great day!
