Last Sketch

As you may have read, today is the last sketch that will be posted at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.  While it's sad to see this little Saturday tradition come to an end, I'm happy to report that it's because Claire has lots of fun things in store for Waltzingmouse Stamps in 2013!  There will still be fun challenges (including sketches and such!) in the future that Claire will host from her blog Waltzingmouse Makes.  So stay tuned to read all of her announcements...soon!

So we are going out with a BANG with a fabulously fun sketch by the wonderful Edna Morrisedie!


I thought it would be good to end 2012 with a little bit of hope for the new year to come...


Funny, but I chose the candle image, then used it with a sentiment that talks about lantern lighting, hee!  But I still think this card has the peaceful, post-holiday vibe that I was going for.  You can't make me put me Christmas stamps away yet, oh no you can't!  :)  The candle is from Bright Season and the sentiment from Light of the World.  Oh yeah, and you can't make me put my Christmas papers away EITHER!  (These are from the "Christmas Wish" Collection by My Mind's Eye.)


Used an image from Vintage Circles Small around the outside and then added another little leaf image from the set to my sentiment panel.  The little berries are glitzed up with a Sakura Glaze pen and the flame with a Stardust pen.

Upload your final creation for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog HERE by next Friday, January 4th.  If you include at least one WMS image, you will be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

I just wanted to say thanks SO much to all of you who have participated (and visited my blog to leave comments on my sketch cards) through the years!  I have made SO many good friends from all around the world!  But I don't want this to sound like a good-bye...not even close!  I will be back in the New Year with all kinds of fun Waltzingmouse Stamps projects to share!  Happy New Year!

Stamps:  Vintage Circles Small, Bright Season, Light of the World, all Waltzingmouse Stamps

I am like you, not ready to say goodbye to Christmas just yet, Kelly. A sweet serene card using stamps I have purchased but not even had a chance to open yet! Glad to hear the positive spin you are putting on the sad news about the weekly challenge ending. I hope to see more inspiring samples of WMS creativity in 2013!
