Waltzingmouse Stamps October Pajama Party


Did you have a good weekend?  I got my new clothes washer installed by DH and got to work tackling the mountain of laundry that has accumulated over the past week.  I was so lucky that my husband stayed up late and did several loads of laundry himself - and can you believe no pink socks and t shirts?    Everything looked great!  I love when the whole family works together as a team - it makes any chore so much easier.  He even added a new telephone line for me to make it easier to pick  up when I'm in the middle of something.   So he gets all the credit for this one - so glad I had some time to work on something ! 

So... did you play along with the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party?  The challenges are closed and the winners were announced  but there is one more chance to win some goodies from Waltzingmouse.  What better way to end the Pajama party than with a Bed Time Story?  Here's the sketch - and YES there are four more days to link up your creations here.  I love an excuse to pull out my stamps and make something.   

I turned the sketch on it's side so I could fit everything in.  I started with some white card stock that I distressed with purple ink.  Then I stamped the vintage witch in Versafine onyx black to get lots of detail.   I added ultra fine glitter accents to the moon and background to add a little sparkle.
I think the fun stripes, zig zag stitch and purple color tone down the spooky image.    I can't wait to see what you made for this sketch challenge!
