Good Morning!!

IN LOVE with the new WMS stamps and have been so busy and not able to play as much as I would have liked!! Sneaked in a card with the new French Country set using this week's WMS sketch.


Looking at this card, I'm wondering... where is the rooster 'cause this sentiment is so perfect for a Rooster (if you've ever lived on a farm..YKWIM!! Stamped two gorgeous backgrounds... one in a mustard/gold color and another border from this set that is fabulous- the middle panel- both borders are fabulous but, dang I am love with the middle border. HA, should be in love with my DH and DD's but-not at this moment, LOL!! Not sure the pic does it justice (I tried, LOL, maybe 30 pics taken. Anywho.. sentiment was stamped in SU soft suede onto SU vanilla... did a little distressing and popped all layers. Added a Websters Pages bauble.

The sketch...

Throwing in another card... was originally intended for the WMS Waltz (17th of every month) which fell on St. Paddy's (read somewhere that if you shorten St. Patrick's Day this is the correct way to state it!) and life got in the way (entertaining aka FEEDING 4 teenagers- the clerk at the grocery store even recognized this--yes "loads of food and cooking", LOL!! Used a digi image that Clare graciously provides as a freebie, colored with copics, dyed some muslin with tea-cut-wrapped- added ribbon and an wooden button. 


















Now, that's some kind of wonderful freebie!!

Tomorrow brings a corporate meeting for me, finishing something for a friend of my daughters'- to be displayed at her wedding Sunday (no pressure here) but, relaxing between.

Come back tomorrow for the weekly I Spy Sketch Challenge.... I'll be "shaking" Viva la Verve bunny!!

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

Two great cards, Vickie! You sure know how to use those WMS :) We ran into a mom with 4 teen age boys at Costco a few years back and she had two Costco cards full - one with mainly meat and the other with mainly milk LOL! Make sure you take pics of what you made for the wedding so we can see :)

Love the gold and grey on your sketch card Vickie - and how you used a real piece of cloth to wrap the shamrocks!
