October Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

Happy Days, my friends! Time again for our monthly Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! The theme this month is Autumn/Harvest (my favorite time of year!). All are welcome to join us! If you missed making a card/project for the waltz, you can still enjoy the waltz and play along in our game to win a stamp set of choice! All the details are in the Waltzingmouse Forum (Playroom:Blog Waltzes), where you'll also find all the links for the waltz. If you haven't already registered for our forum, it's just a few clicks and easy as pie!

I made a wee notecard based on this week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. We have a prize up for grabs this week, so come on and join us there, too!

I used the new Text It stamp set to stamp my background on one of the "solids" in the Pyrus collection by Basic Grey and then sponged around the edges. I then stamped the branch, leaves and little birdie from the Teeny Trees stamp set. I love the simple, rustic look. The card was finished off with some silky ribbon and a flower from the Capella collection by Basic Grey. Simple pimple, as Claire would say!  And it looks so NATURAL.

Thanks so much for waltzing by today! I will be doing a bit of waltzing myself and looking forward to it!

Cheers!
