Waltzingmouse November Soap ~ Day 4:

It's the final day of Waltizingmouse's Stamp of Approval Parade, and I'm sharing a CAS card that I made with a "candy cane" styled circle from the Faux Fun Circle set, and the holly and Christmas sentiment from the Very Vintage Christmas Stamp Set. I just colored the holly with Copics, popped up the berries and added a sprinkle of glitter to them. The wreath was stamped with Red Magic VersaMagic, and the borders were made by just cutting the top panel 1/4" smaller, along the side, and punching both sides, starting with the middle. I also scored a line along each punch to finish off the edges.

That's it for me this week.
We hope that you have enjoyed, and have been inspired, the past few days from our Stamp of Approval Parade; highlighting Claire's lovely Christmas and holiday sets. Now it’s time for you to get your craftiness on as we invite you to participate in a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) competition.

Find a card or project from any of the projects posted over the past few days by the WMS Design Team, CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog. At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs.

We hope you will enjoy this competition and that it will inspire you be creative. You have one week to complete and link your project as the competition will close at 8:00 AM Claire’s time on August 10th, which is 3 AM Eastern, 2 AM Central and Midnight, Pacific time. The winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on November 11th.

I finally figured out how to add to my bookmarks,(different computer and search engine!) and made the wise choice to put you in there because your blog is so filled with inspiration in just my style!! I love how you create and I love what you create. Such a talent. I have been browsing and am smiling big with delight. Your pretzel bags are just the BEST--LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!! This CAS wreath is a simple cutie. I love the holly leaves.
