Waltzingmouse Blog Party!


 
Welcome everyone!  I'm so excited to share my card today.....using some Waltzingmouse Stamps!  It's Waltzingmouse Blog Party time!!
 
I am very blessed to have so many things in my life......stamping friends amongst them.  It's because of the generosity of a stamping friend, I added a few sets to my WMS collection!  Thank you Joan!
 
I've kind of done a two-fer here and also played along with the sketch challenge!  I used the Big Blooms Chrysanthemums for my focal point of the sketch and a cute little sentiment from Teeny Trees.  I knew the minute I got this set that I would use my Distress Inks on this gorgeous flower.  Seriously, I've mentioned before that I LOVE this technique!
 
Give Thanks

 
 To frame my flowers, I added a simple scoring detail. 
Here is the sketch for this week that my card was inspired by................
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Blog Hop!

You really did a great job, i think this is a lesson for me to learn from you. I have a bad habit, I can never stick with one thing forever. But the way you are blogging from past 6 years really made me surprise...
