Waltzingmouse Sketch #40


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....

...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.....
