{MTSC46} You Know Dasher and Dancer ...

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
It's time to stamp it up with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!

When you only have room for one of Santa's reindeer, Dasher's your man! Here, I've stamped him with ballet blue craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder on very vanilla cardstock. The image was cut out with an oval nestie and framed with the scallop brocade blue. I've stamped the kraft cardstock with the pretty snowflake from the Patterned Pines hostess set using white craft ink. As you can see, I've stitched around this layer, added the clear rhinestone brads and coordinating ribbon and that was that! :) Have you noticed the individual stamps in the back of the Stampin' Up! catalog? Dasher (116816) is one of these single stamps and sells for only $8.95!

Now, back to the sketch challenge! Mercy Kerin has designed another stamptacular layout for us and you are all encouraged to join in the FUN! Last week we had over 60 participants and that really makes us SMILE! :)

Now let's see what Mercy's and her Muses have created for our viewing pleasure today:

Cindy Haffner
Pam Varnell
Julie Lacey
Crystal Birr
Jessica Diedrich
Vivienne Holden { Sending out a Warm Welcome to our November Guest Muse! }

OK, it's your turn! All you need to do, is create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation to Mister Linky on Mercy's Blog ~ Lord Have Mercy!

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!

Pam.... I have done Dasher in every color - except this! What was I thinking not to have done Dasher with these colors :-) It's gorgeous - soft and dreamy and I love the backdrop you created. Fabulous job.
