The Debut of Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

Hi! Happy Saturday! And may I say, this is one of the happiest Saturdays I've had lately! We're finally able to reveal something that's been in the works for awhile now... the debut of the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!!! Yep, Claire mentioned to me a couple of months ago that she wanted to start a sketch challenge blog...a place for folks to find inspiration and share their projects using Waltzingmouse Stamps while having a bit of fun along the way...and perhaps winning a prize or two! I was more than happy to jump on the task since... as you know... I LOVE sketch challenges! And now the day is finally here!


Claire has created some amazing sketches for us to play with, and this is but the first! All of the challenge details are on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog, but generally work this way:

New challenges are posted every Saturday. You have until the following Thursday at 11:59 pm Eastern to link your card/project. Occasionally, there will be a prize involved. If so, then the winner will be randomly drawn from all entries. Plus, every week three Top Mouse awards will be given, with a cute blinkie offered to proudly display on the winners' blogs.

While we'd love to have you use Waltzingmouse Stamps, it is NOT necessary to play in the sketch challenge! However, if a prize is up for grabs and the winner has used Waltzingmouse stamps, then she will receive a bonus prize!

My card uses one of my favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps sets... Sewing Box - Hugs. I love the way the stamped images look like felt or quilted appliques. Okay, I have to admit my card turned out a wee bit brighter than expected (hee hee).

I sure hope you'll come along and join us this week... be a part of the VERY FIRST Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! There is a prize up for grabs... a free template of choice! What a great way to start your weekend crafting!

Have a lovely day!

That's funny cos I thought it was a little appliqued house you'd put on the card!! I don't think the colours are too bright Lisa they fit very well with a summer theme!

Claire Brennan said...

This is very pretty Lisa, and I think bright suits it!! A very cheery wee card! Thank you!
