Waltzingmouse Stamps November Blog Party!

This month at Waltzingmouse Stamps the blog party theme is "gratitude." Add your creations to the Mr. Linky set on Claire's blog HERE.  You have until Sunday Nov. 18th at 1:30 PM.  Claire will be highlighting projects on her blog on November 20th.  She will also announce the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS set of choice!

I chose to make a harvest lantern card!


Bright Season is back in stock at the store, as well as some other Christmas and recently released sets!  Check out Claire's blog post here and here for the full list.  It is such an awesome set!  I paired my lantern with papers from Simple Stories "Harvest Lane" Collection and a sentiment from Teeny Trees.


I have been so inspired by all of the "decorated" lanterns that I have seen everyone making!  I thought I would try one with some mini felt roses in rich autumn colors.  My felt is from an Etsy shop called "Benzie Bazaar."

Marlena left me a comment and she is right....these flowers must have popped in my head after seeing this week's Tuesday Trigger "Fantasy in Fall" at Moxie Fab World!  I love when subliminal stuff like this happens, LOL!



Since it's time to say thanks, I wanted to say thanks to all of YOU who visit my blog each week.  A few kind words about a card seem like such a small gesture...but I know how much they can make me smile when I am feeling blue or having "one of those days."  I am grateful for having a crafty hobby that lets my mind wander to a creative place...and for all of my crafty friends who know exactly what I am talking about :)!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Bright Season, Teeny Trees, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Rustic Cream and Kraft cardstock, Simple Stories "Harvest Lane" papers
Ink:  Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler, Fresh Ink in Honey, A Muse Studio ink in Bellini, VersaFine Black, Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks
Other:  My Favorite Things Mini Rolled Rose Die-namics, felt from Benzie Bazaar (etsy.com), twine

This is so beautiful Kelly. I love the dimension you achieved with your lantern. I wish I could have played along, but was out of town for several days attending my daughter's wedding, and time just got away from me. I'm loving what you have done with this set!
