Good Luck

Hi there! How are you?

I'm glad it is the weekend! Happy to start Saturday with a new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, too.

Here is the sketch for today:
And here is my take:

I loved the background paper Edna created for her card for WMSC42, and was inspired to try making some myself.

I used the dotted rectangle images from Fancy Phrases and (somewhat) randomly stamped them to create my background.

The leaves are a combination of images from Frame It and Teeny Trees. The sentiment is also from Fancy Phrases.

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

Also, the Friends of WMS Blog Waltz is tomorrow - the theme is Easter - you can get more details here! I will see you then!
