YEEE HAAAW!

I know, I know- if only I had the WMS set and a card to fit that sentiment, 'cause WMS has a set  here and it will be winging its' way to my house soon!! Y'all have convinced me I need it!!

Today is a special day for me-- I am the Guest Mischief  Maker at Waltzingmouse Stamps Weekly Sketch Challenge!!! No- I didn't pay them-LOL!! I have the privilege of playing along with all the Fabulous Mischief Makers for the next month... and I'm Thrilled!

This weeks' sketch is from Ms. Edna (yes I live in the South and we add things like Miss in front of names). The sketch is a versatile one and I know you'll love it!

I stamped the background panel and curved panel using stamps from Gingham & Co. Gingham always makes me smile and the reverse blue polka dots (haven't used that stamp and I love it!) is wonderful. Any flaws in stamping are mine- for a little shabby/homey (not the urban dictionary definition) feel. Flowers are Sewing Box Hugs stamped on MME papers several times, cut out and... popped on top of each other... and edges bent for a little dimension. Ruffle is gray taffetta ribbon from SU.

Ms. Ednas' sketch


It's your turn.... get out your WMS and get to stamping!! I'd love to see what you create!! Have been overwhelmed at work and not as much time to blog/comment but, one of my fav things to do is check out what everyone creates...

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!! Have a wonderful weekend... I'm thinking-hoping I will have some time to stamp/play!!

Vickie - congratulations on being GD on the MM team. I really like your homespun take on the sketch. Love the ribbon around the semi-circle and sweet flowers. Great work.

Can't wait to see what you make with the Yee-haw set :)
