Happy Saturday! No big plans for me for the weekend. We are doing some projects around the house thanks to my binkie - short for stinker binker my 7 month old Akita. She discovered a loose piece of wallpaper on our stairway and decided the wall would look better without it. Gotta say she keeps life interesting and is way more trouble than I ever anticipated. I bought her a child's spiderweb cape for Halloween - I had to return the more appropriate devil costume I originally purchased because it was too small. (YES they sell costumes for dogs!!) She is about 80 lbs. now.
Are you ready for the for the new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. The design this week is by my friend, and Mischief Maker, Renee Lynch from It's a Patchwork Life. Well what's not to love about this one? What a great way to show off your favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps set - Front and center! I saw the design and immediately thought of an ornament. I stamped it purple ink and cut an oval in the center to add dimension and lay over the sentiment which is a double stamp with a star burst pattern in lighter purple. I topped it all off with a big red and white striped bow with some fun colored jingle bells. Who says red and purple don't go together?
Thanks for having a look - I hope you have a great week with lots of time to create!
