Waltzing Mouse November Blog Waltz time!!

Please join us for our Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

Good morning!! It's that time of the month again when we dance along with the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz. Details of how the waltz works can found by clicking the image above.  This month our theme is CHRISTMAS!! To participate in the Waltz you must leave a link to your blog on the forum HERE. If you're not already registered it only takes a minute to do so. We are also playing the Watermark game and there will be prizes!!

I found a great tutorial on making Beanie Hat gift card holders so I decided to give them a go. These are the coolest gift card holders ever, lol. I couldn't decide which way I wanted to use the papers so I made two!! 



My little gingerbread boy is from the Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy set, as is the 'For You' on the 2nd beanie hat.

How it works....


I used a background stamp from the Pic-Nic set, stamped with TH Fired Brick distress ink

using the same stamp and TH Antique Linen distress ink...


Hope you like :) Have a great day

That is just gorgeous Sandie! So adorable and such a clever gift card holder. I love the colours that you've used as well. Your little gingerbread guy is so sweet, and I love that you used the snowflakes at the top of the little hats like pom poms - so clever! Thanks so much for sharing and for the inspiration. Hugs, Robyn xx
