I made another card for this weeks Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #122. I gained inspiration from the many wonderful cards made by the designers and from several Holiday based Waltzing Mouse stamp sets as well as a new Santa stamp that I recently purchased from Serendipity Stamps: HERE
Here again is this weeks sketch:
I had fun making this card and was inspired by Renee who made a card with a Santa silouhette and the colors black, red, and cream. You can see her card on her blog "It's a Patchwork Life": HERE. I ended up using the colors black, red, white and silver on my card.
I also made a little tag to go with the package that I will be putting this card with. I am trying to make things as special as I can for Tim this year as it will be a hard day for both of us - our first Christmas without our beloved Papa Stuart. Just praying to make it through with grace and peace in our hearts. Thank goodness for all of our wonderful family and friends and all of you out in blog land who have offered such wonderful and loving friendship and support these past months. It means so much to me when I read your comments and emails! You are a blessing to me!
So thanks very much for taking a look at my creations and leaving such sweet comments on my blog. They truly do brighten my days!
I was able to get my desktop computer that has my picture editing software on it up and running tonight so my picture quality is a bit better but as usual it was a very dark and grey day here in Seattle land which makes good picture taking difficult even with extra lighting. It looks like a new computer is definitely in our future as even with 2 repair appointments it is hit or miss as far as the desktop booting up when I want to do some photo editing or other work. Bummer!
Happy Crafting friends!!!
