Waltzingmouse and Thinking About You...

Weekly sketch on WMS by Belinda Chang.... now, when I first saw the sketch I wished that I had the doily stamps as I normally LOVE to make chic/shabby cards {which I LOVE BTW} but, I had to create something different from my norm. Had some fun with it and definitely a challenge for me, Belinda... used some Cosmo Cricket dp- Upcycle- not shabby but, "girlfriend" how perfect!! One of my bestie girlfriends is my sister... how Lucky am I !! Actually, my girls and I are bestie GF's too... now that's depending on the "mom" hat I feel compelled to use sometimes... TMI?? Anywho... IMHO... my girls think I'm a titch behind reality.... what they don't understand yet is that I'm Waaay Ahead... BTDT!!!

My different... fun hat....



















Aren't those buttons adorable, and the Holiday Labels No. 14 from WMS is perfect with the papers and buttons!! Sentiment from WMS Fancy Phrases... love this set, although there is a new set Say it Out Loud that is on my list!!
Belinda's sketch....


















Have you "evah" had grand plans.... lots of time to stamp and no distractions!!! Well... I have to say Grand Plans don't always come to fruition.... thought I had this wonderful day to myself tomorrow and now, I'm going to work 'cause things are like a "wildfire" and I'm the fireman {without credentials as a firefighter, LOL!!}  This is one of those moments when I need to calculate the retirement or push the DH to accomodate me!!

Gabby as can be...

If you happen to stop by, I love to hear from you even if it is to tell me I'm a little tooooo gabby!!!

I think you did a fabulous non-shabby card with this sketch, Vickie! Love the buttons. Loved your line re: depending on which mommy hat you wear. My 12 year old told me if I were her age she would definitely pick me as a friend. Hoping our wonderful relationship carries on for life. Sorry to hear your wonderfully planned day got shot to heck - start calculating LOL!

Vickie, you'll never be too gabby...in fact, I thoroughly enjoy your commentary! You always have a sense of humor in your dialog! Love your card and am reminded it's been a long time since I visited the rodent store! Love your interpretation of their sketch! Sorry your "me time" changed for tomorrow, but putting out fires is a necessity of life at times! :-)

Wonderfully done Vickie! You did such a lovely job with this mix of papers (sometimes I really struggle with that!) Love how you did up the sentiment too! So pretty! :D

This is definitely a fun card! Love those buttons. I "need" to get some WMS :) You can never be too gabby - I like to get a peek into people's non-crafty life :)
