2012 Waltzingmouse Secret Santa Card Exchange
This is the second year I have enjoyed receiving a card from a Waltzingmouse Stamps Secret Santa and I wanted to share the card I received from a very, very talented cardmaker...Sandy Dawes. I have known Sandy from a couple of the popular stamp forums and have even bought and sold a few stamp sets from her, so I was very excited to receive a beautiful card from her a few weeks ago. Here is the card Sandy made and sent to me.
A Cottage Christmas and I love how the snowy little cottage is help upright by the cute doormat she made. The card in person is very shimmery and the trees and pathway is tipped with glittery giving the illusion of a beautiful cottage in the forrest. This was the first Christmas card I received this year and it is still sitting right in front of me on my craftroom shelf...I may take it down around the 4th of July! Thank you so much Sandy!
I sent a card to Sandy in return and since she doesn't have a blog or gallery, here is a picture of the card I sent to her:
Yonder Star Backgrounder stamped in Versamark. It gives such a pretty, subtle little texture to a plain piece of cardstock. The holly leaves and sentiment are from Sewing Box Christmas and the Nice List badge is from Candy Jar Christmas. It was so fun to make this card and I hope Sandy enjoyed it.
I hope you will all check out the Waltzingmouse Blog to see all of the fabulous cards that everyone received from their Secret Santa's. Here's a link...take a look!
