This is my offering to this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Again, I have taken slight liberties with the sketch by turning it on it's side and utilizing the heart shape as the best kind of circle that I know of, but it felt right.
The card was initially going to be the first of my Christmas cards, but I ended up reworking the holiday sentiment I first stamped, by restamping and hiding it under those three precious words, "I Love You". So I guess this card is actually an incognito Christmas card, if I were to get down to brass tacks. I know I should really get a wriggle on and start making my holiday cards in earnest, but my days seem to be just zooming by and I just want to relish in the Now a wee bit longer. Silly perhaps. Although, I am not as devil may care as I'd like to make out on this forthcoming holiday crafting bee, which I know I will enjoy once I get into the swing of things, because I have recently received an order of some new holiday themed stamps and designer paper. Plus, I am sure to order a few more festive bits and bobs in any case within the next little while. Tragic I know. But for the moment, I am just going to enjoy things as they are and work on not pressurizing myself too much, just yet.
I really enjoyed using my beloved Waltzingmouse stamps on this card. I utilized stamps across the Cameo To Go, Oval Classic Frames, and Seasons Of Love Tags. It's amazing how well Waltzingmouse Stamps play with one another. Lucky for me too, Waltzingmouse Stamps also play equally as well with other quality stamps, because I used Hero Arts Designer Woodblock stamp in Envelope Pattern on the Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist cardstock base. Kinda cool effect, eh?
Well, I better limit my ramblings for now as I have a small open window for crafting as all the little kids are out of the house at the moment and I am happy to ignore all the other chores mounting up before my very eyes for a bit of nourishing time feeding my spirit. Here's hoping you get some crafty time in too!
Catch ya soon! xo
