Hello!!

Hump Day is here!! Finished my card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. You have until Friday at noon (I believe but, check the blog for sure) to participate. Love these sketches... so many ways to interpret them... and..... by participating you are in the random draw for a free set... can't get any better than that!!

My card...


Papers are from Echo Park's For the Record... getting low on these, which is good since a bought some of the new MME papers and told myself I had to use up some of the papers I had first... you know before the new ones arrived- didn't work but, I'm trying to hold off and not sure how long that's going to last!! I am my own policewoman... not doing a very good job though, haha!! I've been playing with WMS Vintage Circles Small a little (another goal was to ink up stamps that have been neglected) and the image on the circle nestie is from this set. Isn't it wonderful with the polka dots and ornate square in the middle. Added a sentiment from WMS Fancy Phrases. A half doily, crinkled ribbon bow topped with a Websters Pages sparkler finished it off.

Here's Jen Cuthbertson's sketch....















Have a great Thursday... mines' going to be a little busy!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

I play those police games with myself all the time, too! That card is so lovely. That stamp is my fave from that set and I like how the red polka dot strip echoes the design.
