Jingle Bells

Hello, and happy Thursday. I ran around today trying to find Zhu Zhu Hamsters! These are new and the hottest thing for Christmas. Little hamsters (not real) that interact with each other and have all these houses and stuff to go with. They are nowhere to be found. I have not even seen one, except on E-bay where they are getting 4 times the retail price! Only in America! You can't find them in stores, but there are 7000 auctions on ebay! Oh well, enough of that whining!

Today's card is for two challenges, one, the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC26) there is a link to their site on the right, just click on the logo to take you there. I used Cosmo Cricket papers. The Jingle Bell music stamp is by Stamp Camp, the bells are part of a large stamp by Endless Designs, the words are by Angel's Attic. The main image of the carriage is unknown. The other Challenge that I am entering this into is the Winter Wonderland, and the challenge there was Jingle Bells.(Link to their site is also listed on the right) Hope your having a great day. Thanks for stopping by. If you haven't already, don't forget to comment on my Nov 1st post for a chance to win the House Mouse stamp pictured on that post. Until tomorrow............

Sue your card is soooooo beautiful. I love the fact that you used bits and pieces from different stamps to create this lovely one of a kind card. I will have to look on ebay and see what this hamster toy is that you are looking for. Good Luck in finding it... Thanks so much for joining us this week at MMSC.
