Waltzingmouse Sketch #40

WMS40narrow 

Woohooo - two posts in one day!

On such a rainy day I of course found some crafting time and had a play with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge....

40-Sketch_thumb4 
...well it's a bit of a doozie isn't it!! None of my Waltzingmouse Stamps worked for this sketch so I played with my My Mind's Eye Gertie papers and trims and a sentiment from See D's Say it Again set.

Well she's not a shy little wallflower now is she lol.

I also glittered up a Collections chipboard star with Pink Paislee Pixee Stix glitter and added a few Kaisercraft red rhinestones for balance.

I'm off again - this time to finish off a sympathy card...for a dear friend who has just lost her Nanna.

See you again soon.....

TSTR and Tues Trigger narrow 

Hey there...hope you're having a great start to the weekend.

I've been on a cleaning kick here this morning....feeling good that rooms that weren't spick and span now are:-))

Now that I've picked up DD from work I plan to kick back quietly for the rest of the afternoon....well just as soon as I get the 5 loads of washing in off the line:-))

But before I do that how about I share my card from last night.....I've combined the colours from Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger....it had me at the spots;-) with the current Shabby Tea Room Bingo Challenge....

For The STRm you have to get 3 in a row like Bingo....I combined Gems/glitter and ribbon and also Gems/Flowers and Punches.

TSTR and Tues Trigger side view 
I made the leaves out of ribbon....the gems are from Basic Grey, large flower is Kaiser, the others I made with the MFT Mini Rolled Roses die.....glittered word is a Doodlebug Design adhesive transfer with DBD glitter.

I think it makes a beautiful wedding or anniversary card:-)

Patterned papers are a mixture....orange from MME Stella and Rose Mabel, yellow spot from OA and orange/cream from Kaisercraft's Devonshire range.
