WaltzingMouse Challenge

Hi there ...
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend ... We've had a lot of rain and outside it is dull and miserable looking ...
I have 2 cards to share ... both of which I made for the WaltzingMouse Challenge ... not sure if I can enter 2 ... But they are quite different from each other though they are both Christmas cards ... yep, I'm getting into the season now ... This is the sketch ...


... and my first card ....



... Used my long forgotten about embossing folder on this, stamped WM 'Text it' in silver ink on my DP(love those text it stamps) ... WM Compliments of the Season stamp and 'With love' is from WM Victorian Frippery set ... The lovely tree is a digital freebie from Sueli Colbert Here ... all glittered up and buttons and ribbon from my stash.


My next card also uses WM stamps from the same sets as above ...



See? Totally different in style ... more vintage ... the DP is Bo Bunny and double sided which always gives me a dilemma ... as I love both sides... everything else from my stash ... the snowflake is a wooden one that was painted silver but of course I had to glitter it a bit and added a rhinestone ... I like sparkly.


I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures from my trip last week ... these are taken at Bewts-y-Coed in Wales...


You see that row of buildings? well they are the most adorable shops, clothes shops, shoe shops, craft shops, candle shop and cook shop, coffee shops and train museum too ... I know I should really have photographed each shop but I was so busy seeing all the beautiful things ... I kinda forgot till I was leaving ... 




Pretty isn't it ... and this was a rainy day....


Have a lovely weekend my lovely friends ....

Ros I love them both. The first card looks elegant and also "fresh" and I love the elegant and a bit of nostalgic look of the second one. The red poinsetta and snowflake are so so gorgeous....
Both are a fabulous take on this weeks sketch; I think you are becoming a TOP mouse!

I like both of your cards. For most challenges you can enter more than once.
Your cards are both fresh and vintage, if you know what I mean.
Very pretty, if I saw them in a shop I would buy them.
I have been there many times...very beautiful and seeing your photos brought back some nice memories. Thanks
Have a lovely day

Both of your cards are exquisite Ros, I love the button details on the first one and the warmth of colours in the second one. And thanks for giving us some more eye candy too, those pics you took in Wales are sooo fab! With such a view it doesn't matter it's raining :-)
