I hope you had a good weekend. Our choir had a singing workshop followed by a concert at the newly renovated Victoria Baths in Manchester and we had a great time. The acoustics were amazing and it was fun to sing with a crowd in the bath as it were! I'd like to Thank Case Study for making me a top pick last week, I was thrilled when I saw all the fabulous entries they could have chosen. Welcome to Sveta who became a follower of the blog this week
Today is the Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz on the theme of being thankful
and as I had to drop out at the last minute for the previous waltz, I decided to kill two birds with one stone this time and also try to use the current Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge. In an unashamed attempt to motivate myself to get on with my Christmas cards, I resolved to try to make one for all challenges I enter up to the big day. I laughed when I saw the sketch
but armed with my resolve I convinced myself that that I could make this into a Christmas Thank you card and came up with this:-

I used the Block tree shape from Teeny Trees and embossed the star lights in white. I cut and matted a tag shape and sewed round the edges with green floss. For the background paper, I randomly stamped a tiny star shape in red and then matted it onto green card. A sentiment from Fancy Phrases was embossed in white with a couple of snowflakes onto a banner strip at the base of the tag. To finish it off I added a satin bow with a snowflake button and a couple of tiny gingerbread people at the base of the tree.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the waltz!
