The Big 100

Well, hello there!

How have you been? I've been suffering a bit from the empty tank syndrome - my mojo is on vacation. But today is a big day - I'm here to play along with the 100th Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Wow, 100 already! We are celebrating with prizes and the chance to be a Guest Mischief Maker - now how cool is that?!

Here is our 100th sketch:

One of my all-time favorites, I admit... there are some perks to being the one that works up the sketches! ;)

Since I was feeling a little rusty and looking for some extra help to get started, I turned to this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge to give me an extra push.

Here is the card I came up with:

I used the delicious images from French Country on my card. Do you have French Country in your stamping arsenal yet? Oh, it is so good.

I hope you can make some time this week to play along with our 100th sketch challenge! The more the merrier, and I mean that literally! The more players we have, the more prizes we'll be giving out - plus you'll have the chance to join the MM as a Guest Designer! Head to the Sketch Challenge Blog for all the details and to link up your card. And while you're there, be sure to pick up our new badge!

Snazzy, huh? ;)

Have a great day!
