Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #98 - Save the Date

OK.  I think I am dreaming... but it is a good dream - so NO PINCHING!    But if you are reading this, maybe it is real!  Did you hear the fantastic news?  I've been appointed a Mischief Maker for Waltzingmouse Stamps!  That means I get to display my work along with the other Mischief Makers on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog every week.   The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is a great place where you  can showcase your favorite Waltzingmouse stamps, have a bit of fun, and perhaps win a prize along the way! I've made so many friends playing along every week that I am just delighted!  I am always amazed by all the beautiful creations I see there created by other people just like me who love Waltzingmouse Stamps!

The sketch this week is by Lynn Mercurio.  It looks a little tricky, but not to worry.  There are lots of great examples posted to inspire you - from clean and simple to over the top fancy!  I saw all those squares as a great opportunity to add lots of embellishments to my "Save the Date" card.  I like to bounce ideas off my family who tolerate my mood swings as I focus on my crafty mojo.   Sometimes it just feels like a collaboration.  My 19 year old daughter chose the purple and approved the design.   I added all the silver, flowers and lace.  Any you just have to love all the little details Claire (the owner of Waltzingmouse) adds herself - like that little accent stamp I put over the sentiment!

Because I am so excited to be the newest Mischief Maker for Waltzingmouse and to tie in with my blogversary celebration I'm giving away this stamp set to one random commenter on this post.  You have until May 26 to enter, and this will still qualify you for my blogversary candy... So Leave a Comment!!   Thank you for having a look - I can't wait to see what you created!
