Blessings- WMSC

Happy Wednesday!! This week the sketch at Waltzingmouse was created by Anya Schrier... fun!! So many possibilities!! I may have veered a titch but, I was dying to ink up this WMS that I acquired a while ago....


This card went through a couple evolutions, LOL!! When I make a card I like to lay everything out... think... play... etc. My original idea was just not working and then, I stamped the large image from Festive Foliage (marker ink to stamp- to get the different colors) as a background and loved it... the detail in Claire's stamps are fabulous!! So... I stamped some extra pinecones in two different browns, fussy cut, added a seam binding bow (ribbon carousel) and that became my collage on the right. Sentiment is from WMS Say it Loud Holidays stamped in early espresso and fussy cut and popped on top.  The oval panel was stamped with the polka dot image from Offbeat Backgrounds and heat embossed with clear.

Here's Anya's sketch...




















Just think tomorrow's Thursday and then, comes Friday... WE!!! Y'all are probably thinking I hate my job by now (always looking to the WE) but, I really don't... just love to play!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate when you do and love all the sweet comments!
