Waltzingmouse Stamps May 2014 Blog Hop

Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse Tag Collectoin 1 and Spellbinders Adorning Labels 25
Hi there blog friends!!  I’m absolutely tickled to be participating in the new releases  blog hop today where we’ll show you some of the new things offered by Waltzingmouse Stamps and today I’m at the end of the line for the hop.   Bonus, I have this card and am showing a non-Christmas card over on the Waltzingmouse Team Talk blog also – you can see it HERE!    Today, all these goodies are in the store, just to tease you a little bit more.   Remember, in order to complete the hop, leave a comment on as many of the Design Team Members Blogs as you can, as a random name is selected from each blog and then a final winner picked from those names. The winner will get a free stamp set of their choice from the Waltzingmouse Stamps store.  You have until May 5 at 5:59 AM CST to leave your comment and then you can check on the Claire’s Blog on May 6 after 6am CST to see if you are a winner.  
Yes, it is only May but what better excuse to sift through my Christmas papers to make this card!  Today I picked traditional colors to show this awesome new tag in the Tag Collection 1 stamp set.  Real Christmas red and holly along with a couple of pearls and I am feeling quite festive.  My card is 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ and I used Spellbinders Adorning Labels Twenty Five and 5×7 Mystical Embrace on my layers.

    Good evening Becca,
    As usual you have come up with a bright and cheery Christmas card, and although it may be considered by some to be very early in the year to be doing this, I have already started mine as I also make cards for the local hospice to raise funds.
    Thank you for your great ideas. xxReplyCancel

    Never too early to begin making Christmas cards, especially when they are as elaborate as yours.

    Great card Becca, though I find it hard to think of Christmas at this time of year (on the other hand, I’ve just started crocheting a blanket as a Christmas present, so perhaps I should retract my statement, LOL).ReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca,
    Becca, what are you trying to do to us? It’s just the start of May and already you are making “C” cards( weep,weep). it is a beautiful card though and the holly is so vibrant. The beautiful red ribbon is so luxurious that you can see from the pictures, but dafty here was looking for the his part of the ribbon.(excuse me having a Simpson moment) i have the loan of someone else’s brain i think this morning
    Love and crafty hugs
