Another WMS Hurrah!!

HURRAH!! I may be a little silly...Silly thrilled!! This is my second week as the Guest Mischief Maker for WMS!! First I want to say Thank You for all the lovely comments and congrats that you left last week!! They were all much appreciated!!

Now... to this week's sketch

Ms. Edna gave me a bit of a pause... but, I finally came up with something. A challenge is a challenge... the fun is all about seeing if you can make something that "fits"


Started this card last weekend and I'm still thinking on it... all those little strips- tried several different ideas.... do y'all ever do that? Think something could be changed just a bit?

I love this WMS set- Asian Garden Additions. Don't you just love those clouds and bridge! I need  the complentary set- Asian Gardens -gorgeous flowers along with a bunch of wonderful ditties- Claire always adds some wonderful ditties!! I have seen some gorgeous cards with the branch/flowers recently!

Ms. Edna's sketch...



















I'm also imagining this sketch with Half Pint Heroines- brick wall for the bottom strips, cloudy sky with a popped up girl in a balloon on top--bright colors and all those fabulous sentiments!! Yep... may have to do another when my new stamps get here!!! Am I pondering/blogging out loud at your expense... Sorry!

Can't wait to see how everyone interprets this sketch!! You have until next Friday at noon to post to the link at WMS. All the info here.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!

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