Waltzingmouse Blog Hop

Well, we're hopping again, the theme this month is birthdays, which presents a slight problem as I only possess two sets of Waltzingmouse stamps (I will be rectifying this at the end of the month on payday!), but I'm really pleased with this simple card, which would be beatiful for an Autumn birthday (it'll be here before you know it!).

Anyway, hope you like, I'm off to have a look at all the other hoppers.

Sketch Saturday No. 101 & Just Tracy's colour challenge

Well I went to Hobbycraft in Bristol on Saturday (sorry Tracy, I'm not a traitor really - nice to check out the competition sometimes!), anyway, they didn't have an awful lot that I can't get more cheaply locally, but they did have lots of stuff so it was lovely to have a leisurely browse! anyway I bought some My Minds Eye papers, an Inkadinkado stamp set (I love Inkadinkado!) and some A5 Papermania capsule collection papers - I thought I was very restrained! Mind you, to be fair they were not that cheap.

Anyway, Tracy has a lovely challenge going on in her shop, you have to use the following colours:

which ordinarily would have been a problem, but having just bought the My Minds Eye papers I had the perfect set!

Over on Sketch Saturday, the current sketch is

Which when combined with the colour challenge and my new sentiment stamps from Inkadinkado produced this lovely card (well I think it's lovely anyway).

The circle was cut using my Cricut - I don't get that out often enough & really must start to make use of it!
