WMS November Release Day Three

Good morning!

Today is day three of previews for the Waltzingmouse Stamps November release. Four new stamp sets are being released tomorrow! Today, I am sharing my projects using the Around Christmastime set, full of lots of circular images and other accents that are perfect for tags (among other things!).

It is also Saturday, Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge day! Here is today's sketch:

Here is my card, using one of the snowflake labels from Around Christmastime.

This is a long card - 8-1/2 by 4. The background was stamped with the border from Very Vintage Christmas. I used the paper rosette die to make the rosettes (it makes them a snap, too). I'm not sure how I feel about this card.. it came out a little different than what was in my head.. a lot brighter!

I went simple with my second project, and I love it!

I love the monochromatic look. In addition to Around Christmastime, I also used elements from Festive Foliage and Text It for this. I could see making up a few more of these for the girls in my office. Cute (and the candle smells like cookies!)!

Here are the rest of the DT members sharing previews today:

Tomorrow the four new sets will be released and we'll be Blog Waltzing, which starts on the WMS Blog at 2:00 pm EST. I hope you'll stop by!

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!
