Muse 50 - Merry Christmas


Isn't this fun? I love the bold colours and simple shapes in this. I was inspired by Therese's Muse this week - this row of masked, brightly-coloured cupcakes:



I was also inspired by the logo of a new stamp company called winnie and walter - I'm eagerly awaiting my opportunity to shop!
This Stampabilities sentiment (that echos Therese's sentiment with its handwritten feel and mixed fonts) is one of my favourite Christmas presents from this year - my mom found it for me at Hobby Lobby during one of her trips to the US. I just loved the handwritten feel of it when I saw it on this Muse card of Benzi's and went frantic trying to find it online, to no avail. I showed it to my mom online and she promised she would keep an eye out for it but then I forgot all about it until I opened it on Christmas day. Moms are great, aren't they? And now, here I am using it on my Muse card!

LOVE your colorful forest, and that is not in typical Christmas colors! You always know exactly where to put the sentiment too. Anywhere else would just not be the same. Love your inspiration too : )

This is fantastic. Love those triangle trees and how they overlap just a bit. And, that sentiment is just perfect--love how just a bit of it goes below into the white. Yay mom--she's a keeper.
