Souhaits Sinceres WMS!!

English--- Hearty Wishes- All the Best-- fits wonderfully this week as the Mischief Makers at Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge - well, everyone at WMS - are celebrating the 100th sketch challenge!! There is a new blog image (it's adorable-you'll see in a "blog" minute!) and prizes to be won! This is one of my fav weekly challenges 'cause I LOVE ME some WMS!!

I made two cards this week....the first is my original card for the challenge and then, I have been trying to play in the CR84FN challenge and not getting my card posted in time- alas, decided to make a card in time and used the WMS sketch... it's a keeper!!



This card uses some of my fav WMS-- well, not all, just some, LOL!! The yellow background was stamped with a pattern from Gingham & Co. with Versamark and heat embossed with clear. That fabulous border is from French Country stamped in SU real red and heat embossed with clear. Circle element uses WMS Vintage Circles small, Gingham & Co. and a rooster from French Country. Black panel was paper pleated- tried to get a pic so it would show up better. Added some lace from the Ribbon Carousel and Divine Twine from The Cats Pajamas.

Second card... flipped the sketch.
For this card I stamped several doily images from WMS Large Doily in SU pale plum and certainly celery to make the background panel. Sentiment is from Aftenoon Tea Sentiments (perfectly fits my life at work right now-- not that I'm in hot water but-- work is hot water! The fleurs in the corners are also from WMS Afternoon Tea Sentiments-- Claire adds little ditties that come in handy!! Did some distressing, added lace and ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel, white button is SU, and sparkler with pearl is Websters Pages.

Now, you need to go here to see the details for the sketch challenge and the prizes to be had. You have until noon tomorrow!!

Here's the adorable new logo..

Don't you just love that "waltzing mouse"

Here's the sketch..

Here's the CR84FN colors..

Just realized the white should be gray... dang!! It was the inspiration so they need bit o' credit!!

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

Both absolutely beautiful cards Vickie - I love the colour combination with the red, black and yellow. Might steal that one for a later date!

Great work on both, Vickie :) Dramatic color combo on the first one and great use of the CR8 colours on the second.

Hi Vickie! Both your cards are beautiful!! Amazing how they are from the same sketch. Love the colours and the gorgeous stamping on your first card. Your second card is soft and pretty, I love the lovely bow & sentiment. Have a lovely day!

Two lovelies Vickie! Both so pretty and very different from each other!

Oh my word, they are BOTH gorgeous, Vickie! I just love the colors and the mix of images on the French Country card! So sunny and cheerful (and gingham peeking out, yippee!). Your tea card has such a soft feel and your doily background paper is gorgeous in those colors! Happy 100th sketch! You provide so much inspiration to everyone each week!

Both of these cards are just so beautiful. I love your color scheme for the first card using French Country..so clever and beautiful with the red, yellow and black. The second card is so lovely and the colors so soft and sweet, that sentiment is one of my all time favorites. Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog too.

Hi Vickie - Gotta say I just ADORE your first card. I think it is the bright colors calling to me - red, yellow, black and BAM - I'm hypnotized. This is a stunner girl!

You know what? I love them both!! I must say that I do hover towards the French country card though.....the colours are fabulous....and I am taken with this stamp set! Thank you so much for playing in our 100th sketch this week!!

Kim Duran said...

Wow! I love both cards so much. How could I choose between the two? Impossible! I love the french county because of the bold colors. And the lavender ribbon is my favorite on the other. Both are so cleverly created. Love 'em! Thanks for joining us this week during the Waltzingmouse festivities!
