Homespun Hugs Sketch

Another unique sketch from Anya at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  This one made me think of quilty prints...

I have missed using my non-holiday sets!  Time to get out the old favorites like Sewing Box-Hugs!


I also can't seem to leave that October Afternoon Sidewalks Collection alone!  Just love the fun springy colors and patterns.  I layered the Sewing Box-Hugs flowers with dimensionals after stamping them directly onto the patterned paper.  Also added my own little stamped pattern with flowers from Eat Cake.


For the center panel, I sponged the edges with PTI's Aqua Mist ink, and then stamped the plaid stripes from Off Beat Backgrounds on the top and bottom.  I could line up the sweet sentiment from Sewing Box-Hugs perfectly!


Like using a ruler...but with much cuter results!

Now it's your turn to play along!  Upload your creations HERE by next Friday, January 20th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image or product on your creation to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS set of choice!

Don't forget!!!!....there is another event next week at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party will take place on Tuesday, January 17th.  This month's theme is "Sweet Things"!  In the new format, you will link your blog post directly into the Mr. Linky section on Claire's blog, rather than on a thread in the forum.  You can add your project any time that day.  Can't wait to see you there!
