Waltzingmouse Pajama Party - Bedtime Story Sketch 1


If you've been a fan of Waltzingmouse Stamps for while you will remember the Sketch Challenge every Saturday. I've been missing them too.  It was always a great opportunity to see different ways to use your Waltzingmouse Stamps.  There was also a Blog Party on the 17th of every month featuring a different theme. 

Claire has been trying to spice things up a bit and give us a chance to have some fun with the newly released stamps.  How often do you purchase a new set of stamps an wait for an excuse to use them?  Now there's no putting it off!  It's time to get inky my friends!  

We're kicking off the very first Pajama Party today!!  If you are a follower of Waltzingmouse you should have gotten an email giving you the details of the Pajama Party.  Instructions were also  posted on the Waltzingmouse Makes blog.    If you didn't see the memo - NO WORRIES! you can get all the details here - it''s not too late!!  

I love the retro badge and the concept of staying up all night with my girlfriends just hanging out and having fun, stamping away,  listening to music, and getting caught up!

Here's your chance to get inky with  those newly released stamps and possibly win some blog candy,  or a chance to be guest designer for the next party!!  You have 24 hours to link up a new creation in the following categories... Tickle Me Silly, You're  A Doll, and In the Background.   If you didn't have time to get something made - and are in a pinch there is a sketch challenge - we're calling a "bedtime story" to dream on.  You get one week to create and link up your design  here.  Here's the very first Bedtime Story!  Easy Peasy right?   Here's what I made using the new You're a Doll stamp set. 
 
I hope you find some time to play - I'm looking forward to seeing some old friends, and making some new ones at the Pajama Party!

Oh Jeanne, I love the bright flower background you created, and with the bits of pearls...beautiful.

Your adorable dolls make a great focal image for this sketch challenge. Well done, my friend.
