Can you believe it's Saturday already? It's been a busy week for me! My hand cramps are recovered from all the zig zag rosettes I made earlier in the week for the Cross Country Senior Night, and so now its time to play!! My son has another meet this weekend and he is doing great. His last 5k he ran in 17:21 !!! I hope he he does well this weekend too - if he makes Varsity I told him I'd buy him another Letterman's jacket since he is at a new school now.
The sketch this week is by the house mouse/mistress herself....... Ms. Claire Brennan! This sketch is a great way to show case your favorite Waltzingmouse Stamp! I just had to ink up the new Bright Season set. I had fun trying different things like distressed backgrounds, but settled on this clean image stamped on white. I just loved how my eye kept going back to the clean colors of the flame. I stamped the flame and rays of light in three different colors and they seem to just pop against the black lantern.
The little tab seems like an obvious place for a sentiment but I actually put a pull tab there instead. I stamped and cut it with the new opera tags on kraft, added a leopard print gem and attached it to a little pull tab with a brad. I think this would be a neat way to insert a little gift card using the "for you" sentiment on the little tab.Here's the finished card
Thanks for having a look. Make sure you check out the inspiration provided by the other Mischief Makers and perhaps Mrs. B. herself!
