WMS- Love Lives Here!!

This week Tosh has created the sketch for WMS. It's a keeper- fun diagonal- just wish I remembered that there was a horizontal layer with a bow...'cause I did a diagonal layer, layer with a bow! We have a little 'bit o' liberty, right?


Royal Mail arrived at my house and one of the sets I acquired had this adorable cottage!! Appropriately called "Cottage Home". Stamped on XPress It Blending cardstock and colored with copics. Fussy cut it out and struggled a little with the background.. settled on the spellbinders labels 4 and matching WMS stamps- Very Vintage Labels No. 4. Added some lace and seam binding with bow from the Ribbon Carousel topped with a tag using MFT's tag die-namics, button, and twine.

Tosh's sketch



















You have until tomorrow at noon to create a little something using the sketch AND you could win a WMS stamp of your choice for participating.

I have been tooling around in the car with the family... my hubs is a bit "gimpy" right now- with the surgery he is not the best long distance driver (right arm in sling) attending the family reunion in Indy- taking the youngest to urgent care-strep- yes, the day after we arrived- yes, exposed all and hoping I don't hear that anyone has a bug!!

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