WMS Blog Hop and Sketch






My friend Cathy told me that I should do the Waltzingmouse Stamps sketch challenge , so here I am. Do not get me wrong,
 all the stars and the moon had to align for me to do this.  
The kiddies have been running like crazy the last few days so we are going to have 
a "ruhetag" today, which means "rest day" in German 
and
 speaking of German how about the German National soccer team, YAY!!!

I have plenty to keep my busy today 
so I am combining 2 parties into 1~~  
This card is for both the WMS sketch challenge and theWMS Blog Hop.

I have this super cute tissue box next to my bed and I wanted to recreate the flowers but I did not really have anything kind of funky and modern in my stamp collection, so I thought.
  I started looking at all my stamps instead of doing a mental inventory and as soon I saw Teeny Trees I knew my luck had just changed.  

I was going to sew on the card, I thought it would be cute to do a quick zig zag stitch on the side to attach my 2/3 circles (does thinking count) but Ava had another idea  ~ 
so the sewing machine went away LOL !!  
She is so bad sometimes but I laugh at her because she is bad in a comical way.  





Have a GREAT DAY~
Now I have to answer my laundry,
I hear it calling my name!!
Sue Ann

What a fun take on the sketch and the challenge. I love that Teeny Trees set--it's on my radar, but not in my house yet. It's fun to see it used in a graphic way. So glad you found time to play...I didn't start stamping until my littles were mediums, so I don't know how you do it.

Nikki said...

I love the layout of this card, and those circles and flower are adorable - with or without sewing ! lol

Bumblebee said...

Oh SUE ANN! Not only am I so excited to see you here but THIS IS FABULOUS! I just love the colors you chose and the patterned paper you created is perfection...just like from the store :) The flower with the coordinating image is GENIUS and so sweeeeeet! Love how it's on the woodgrain panel, too. Now we are on to you! You have to come back when you can and play so that we can enjoy more lovelies like THIS!

Hi Sue Ann... missed you!!! Great card - glad the heavens aligned to make it. Hope you enjoyed your ruhetag, which I'm sure is pretty rare - growing up, one of the biggest insults in our house was Langschläfer :)

Jeanne J said...

Hi Sue Ann! How cool that you made your flower out of the teeny trees! Love it! Everything ties together beautifully!

Taheerah (*LittleMissT*) said...

Awesome design Sue Ann, very fresh and funky!! That flower has just the right amount of dimension and interest to it, and I love the cut-out part exposing the woodgrain!

Thanks so much for your awesome comment on my blog - it really cheered me up and made me feel better about my out-of-the-box idea!!

Hugs!!

Vickie Z said...
