Rootin' Tootin'

Oh Saturday, how glad I am to see you! I had a rough week, chickies, thanks for understanding while I laid low.

Today I am here to bring you this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it (I hope you will!) is this sketch:
I also combined this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge (PDCC78) with the sketch. The colors were red, light blue, and pink. Here's my card:

I think of all the coordinating Nesties sets that WMS has, my favorite is Very Vintage Labels No. 10. I paired it with a sentiment from Back in the Saddle and a pretty plaid made using Off Beat Backgrounds.

We hope you'll play along with us this week - head to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog to link up your creation. In addition to the Top Mice awards, a free stamp set is awarded each week to a random player!

See you soon!

Oh! PS - I think sneak peeks for the May Release are starting today on the WMS Blog!! You're in for quite a treat this month!
