Waltzingmouse Stamps Teacher Appreciation Blog Party

**Second post today.  Please scroll down for the Kreate-a-lope Blog Hop**
Time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party and this month Teacher Appreciation is our theme!  I also loved this sketch by Amy O'Neill for Freshly Made Sketches and decided to use it for my party card, as well.



Here is my card using the sweet apple basket from Peace and Plenty.


I used patterned paper from American Crafts and a sentiment from Frame-It.


I stamped a separate basket with the Woodgrain background and then paper-pieced it over the original basket.  Love how it looks in that color!

You still have time to play along with the blog party!  Upload your creation to Claire's blog HERE.  One randomly-selected player will win a WMS stamp set of choice.  Claire will announce the winner, and also highlight some special projects that she saw during the hop, on her blog on May 20th.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Peace and Plenty, Woodgrain, Frame-It, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  American Crafts patterned paper, PTI Rustic Cream
Ink:  A Muse Studio Mermaid ink, Memento Espresso Truffle, Copic markers
Other:  twine
