Bewitched Sketch...and a CR84FN bonus card!

October is here, and we're starting off the month with more fabulous sketches from DT members at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.  This week's sketch is by Sarah Martina Parker!

Time for a little Hocus Pocus...

I paired the fabulous witch and circle sentiment from Halloween Party with the fence and "Bewitched" sentiment from Hocus Pocus.  Papers are from Authentique's "Enchanted" Collection.  Also had to add a touch of PTI's new Limeade Ice ribbon and cardstock (and some lime potion bubbles, too)!

It seems that I can never resist including an opening gate when I stamp this fence image!  Just cut the fence apart at the gate, and scored lines at the "hinges."

Upload your creations with this sketch HERE by next Friday, October 12th.  Be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

GREAT news!  The August release sets (all 9 of them) have arrived in the store!
Go grab Camellia, Opera Tags Stamps (with coordinating Spellbinders Opera Tags Nestabilities designed by Claire!), Bright Season, Little Lanterns, Light of the World, Vintage Garden-Seed Packet, Vintage Garden-Flowers, Vintage Garden-Produce, and Appleblossom Seeds NOW!

What better time to use the new set Little Lanterns than to join the CR84FN Color Challenge on World Card Making Day!  This week's colors are light blue, yellow, and green...

I challenged myself to make a Christmas card with these colors...heavy on the light blue, a bit skimpy on the green, and REALLY stingy with the yellow :)

I used an awesome new Cuttlebug Hexagon embossing plate (one can never have enough hexagon-building apparatus) and stamped the small snowflake from Sewing Box-Christmas in each one.  Dotted the centers with Stickles to add sparkle.  I made the Beaded Oval into a frame by cutting the middle out with a Standard  Oval Small nestie.  That is turning into one of my favorite things to do!

Stamped a lantern, candle, flame, and "glow" image from Little Lanterns, then added the cluster of festive leaves from Bright Season at the top.  Turned my holly into "mistletoe" with some white gems.  The sentiment is a teeny one from Seasons of Love-Tags.  I hope to be back later on this World Card Making Day to participate in some challenges!

Speaking of challenges...don't forget!  The October 17th Waltzingmouse Blog Party theme has been revealed.  See the post on Claire's blog HERE for more details!

Love that hexagon folder! You knew I was going to say that, didn't you? Love your spooky fence with the gate open and the pretty lantern in your Christmas card is beautiful.
