Keeping a Lamp Lit for You!!

This week's Waltzingmouse sketch is by Mischief Maker Renee Lynch!! Fabulous sketch and definitely will be a "go to" for me!! I had fun inking up some new stamps!!


The fleur background is a wooden piece I purchased at Michael's and painted. Stamped the "rays" from WMS Little Lanterns onto an oval nestie, trimmed to fit, and adhered to the back. Stamped a lantern with rays, and candle from Little Lanterns, fussy cut and popped on top. Tried several borders for the sides but, with the fleur wooden piece the card needed a simple border so, I added some piping bias tape from the fabric store- you can't tell in the pic but, it adds some dimension and texture. A big ole' bow with bells and sentiment from Bright Season finished it off!!

Renee's sketch..



















Hope you're having a wonderful week... mine's been busy. Tomorrow's Friday... Whoo Hoo! We're going for a family dinner at Firebirds for my step grandson's B-Day, my son-in-law's fathers' B-day, and my daughter's 1st Anniversary-- okay...that sounds complicated!! I should be celebrating--ha, that wedding is a year down the road--geesh, what a project AND time consumer AND money consumer AND time consumer-- you get the idea!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate when you do and love to read all the kind words!!
