On The Fifth Day of Christmas...

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

My true love gave to me...a task! To bake 8 mini loaves of bread for the technicians at his work. Seriously! Have I not done enough baking already with all the cookies (5 different types) that went to school with Syd today?? All I can say is: There had better be something sparkly in my stocking this year! LOL It can be fake too honey, I just want something sparkly! ;)

Anyway...LOL! Today is Sketch 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas challenge going on over at The Greeting Farm blog. Have you all been playing along?? I hope so because there are some SERIOUS prizes at stake!

You can find today's sketch on TGF blog but here's my sample using the sketch. I used the adorable Library Mouse stamp from author/illustrator Elizabeth Dulemba. I've had this MME paper for yeeeears! But you can never really get rid of paper right? Because one day, that perfect card or project will come along that fits that paper and voila! A match made in heaven! ;)

Ok, now it's your turn. Get busy creating your card with this sketch and upload it to the Sketch 5 gallery in TGF galleria.

I have to make another card this morning then I'm having lunch with my MIL, then over to Target for some last minute stocking stuffers for The Man and some gift cards for the family, then it's back home for hopefully a relaxing evening. :)

Hope you have a great day!
