There is Mischief to be Made!


It's true!  I received a wonderful email a little while ago, asking ME to be a Mischief Maker for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  I could hardly believe my luck, and am so thrilled to be a part of this group of talented ladies! 

I have always been such a fan of everything Waltzingmouse Stamps and love waking up each Saturday to see the new sketch that Claire Brennan has posted!  Speaking of sketches, here is this week's sketch:

And here is my card:



Since today is a new beginning for me, I thought I would start back at the beginning!  The very first stamp set that I ordered from Waltzingmouse Stamps was Earth Angel.  I was playing in a challenge at Splitcoaststampers and saw the sweetest card made with the set by Lynn Mercurio!  I just had to have it, and was immediatetly hooked on Waltzingmouse Stamps after it arrived.


For this card I sponged the sky with Distress inks, and hand cut the banner.  I paper-pieced the angel, and used Papertrey Ink's Vineyard Impression Plate to fancy up her dress.  Then I stamped her wings separately and glittered them up.  I am pretty sure that there are 32 dimensionals on this card...this angel is ready to fly!  The sentiment and wand (really a heart and part of the jump rope!) are also images included in Earth Angel.  The bottom of the card is made with WMS Pic-Nic Patterns, dotted in the center with some white opal Liquid Pearls.

Now it's your turn to play along!  Be sure to directly link your creations with this sketch HERE, within the specified time frame.  Play as many times as you would like!  While we love to see you use Waltzingmouse Stamps images, they are not required to play.  Every week, one randomly-selected player has a chance to win a free stamp set of choice.  Claire is so generous, and I thank her, and Lynn Mercurio,  for inviting me to join the Mischief Makers! 

And thanks to the current team of Mischief Makers for giving me such a warm welcome!  I have been in awe of their talent each week, and only hope that I can keep up! Be sure to stop by and see what they created with this week's sketch:
