Waltzingmouse November Bloghop


O.K. so I'm playing truant from school prep and getting in a little crafty time and a Blog Hop here :0)!! Feels pretty good too - heeee!

This is my first time playing along with WMS - and I'm pretty excited to be dancing along! The challenge this month is to create a Christmas themed card - and the Very Sweet Postman recently left me some delectable WMS Christmas goodness ... so it wasn't too much of a stretch!

Sleigh Bells

With a sentiment like that, I couldn't resist the bell :0) ...

Sleigh Bells Deet

These colours make me happy - and I think this Bo Bunny paper is absolutely GORGEOUS ... but the DP does most of the work in this card. So there is one more, with more "hands on" stamping ....

Christmas Plaid

Love the colours in this one too - and they're inspired by Claire herself! One more deet shot for those peeps who find them helpful ...

Christmas Plaid Deet

So there it is :0) Thank you sooooo much for waltzing in and stopping by for a while! May your dancing shoes continue to hold up well - no worn soles before the end! LOL!

We have been busy with school too so I have not had much time to visit blogs. Finally getting a chance today though. Great job on everything you have posted since my last visit. These cards are wonderful too.

LaurieJ said...

Wow, your first blog waltz and you made TWO cards! They are both beautiful. Not sure which I like best, maybe the second one because of all the stampy goodness. Your plaid is wonderful.

Oh my Nerina - this is just gorgeous. I love both cards, but I'm really drawn to the blue card with you pop of red is just breathtaking! Well done.

Omgosh, I just LOVE these. Absolutely stunning cards. The rich red ribbon really jumps out and that dinky little bell is such a great touch. Just looking at your 2nd card makes me realise that I NEED that stamp set :D Wonderful inspiration, thanks!!
