Waltzingmouse Stamps October New Release Previews Day 3 - My Tardy Card

Okay, technically it is still "today," Wednesday, October 6th, here in So Cal, so I didn't break my promise. (*sheepish grin*) Truthfully, I'm a bit under the weather... which I hate making a big deal about... but it's thrown me off my game and wrecked havoc with my meager mojo. So what does one do when one's mojo is on hiatus? Look through a magazine, that's what! I found a card made by Sherry Wright on page 68 of the January/February 2010 issue of Paper Crafts that gave me the inspiration I needed to get going with this card.

The featured Waltzingmouse Stamps stamp sets are Compliments of the Season (greeting) and Big Blooms - Poinsettias (which I've stamped around the greeting on the tag). The wonderful vintage snowman is from the Vintage Christmas Postcards Kit by Crafty Secrets. I trimmed him down with Spellbinders Labels 14. The DP is from the Tinsel & Twigs collection by Girls Paperie (love love love!). Everything is inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I will definitely be back tomorrow (Thursday) at 11:00 am Pacific for the Waltzingmouse Stamps October New Release Blog Waltz. See you then!!!
