You Make the Difference

Hi there!

This is my second post for today. What with all that Blogger nonsense yesterday, my schedule is a bit goofy!

I'm here to share this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is today's sketch, brought to us by the lovely and very talented Edna Morrisedie!
This is a fantastic sketch, here's my take:

Simple is what I seem to have been going with recently. I started by stamping my background with the medium gingham stamp from Gingham & Co. - I dare you to stop using this set!

I stamped the polka dot pennants from Bitty Banners all in a row and then trimmed them out along the bottom. That left a little space above for me to stamp my sentiment, which is one of the great phrases from Say It Loud (I dare you to put that one down, too!).

A little bit of baker's twine across the top helps to give a nice clean line for my sentiment, and adds a pop of color to my card.

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!

Have a great day!

  1. Beautiful Anya! i am in love with that gingham too!

  2. Soooo pretty, Anya! Love the soft colors you used and the gingham is really gorgeous!! I won the Challenge of last week and will ask this gorgeous set to Claire!! Love it!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  3. What a great CAS design on this Anya! love the colors!

  4. I love the colors you used and the way you stamped and cut out the banner is a great idea!

  5. What a great take on the sketch! This would be a goon "guy" card--the gingham looks a lot like a flannel shirt!

  6. Oops, I meant good, not goon!

  7. I love the CAS design of this card! Banners and gingham - can it get any better? And what a wonderful sentiment. Say It Loud is at the top of my wish list, followed closely by Gingham & Co. I have a self-imposed moratorium on stamp shopping for the month of May, due to gardening expenses. Plants vs. stamps. Plants win out at this time of year. So I'm counting the days until June 1.


Thank you for stopping by - I love to hear from you!
