Bonne Fete

This weeks' Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge is one created by Renee. WMS recently released 9 new stamp sets... well, I can't have them all (although, sometimes my DH would disagree)... but, some fabulous ones came in the mail yesterday. I had been dreaming about roosters and chicken wire and had this idea in my head.... ran into some difficulties (when you have something in your head and can't totally translate it to paper) but, "soldiered" on and here it is


Here's the one without the "chicken feed" Used some of my fav colors and I have to say these sets stamp "like a dream". That's a French Country rooster wishing a "Happy Birthday"!! The metal netting is from Linda Coughlin (funkiejunkie on etsy).

Tried lots of "stuff" for the other frames and nothing was working out. Not sure this did either, LOL!! Added some Muddpuddles Malibu Beach sand (sis gifted me this a while back) for chicken feed. Here's the Rooster and chicken feed card... 


Renee's sketch...














Tomorrow's Friday... Whoo Hoo... starts a long weekend. Also, my I Spy Sketch challenge will be up!!

Based on all your wins I'd say you have quite a few of their stamps LOL! Cute card using the sketch. Think the rooster is missing his chickens ;)

Wait, your DH says you must have them all? Listen to the man, you must, heeee! This is so wonderful, Vickie! I just love how you used the new images for this sketch, especially Mr. Rooster! The burlap in the background is just perfect for your theme!
