Inky Paws & Fingers

I was doing a spot of hopping around a few of my favorite stamp sites this morning and discovered that Waltzing Mouse do a weekly template challenge. I don’t know how I’ve missed it all this time but now I’ve found it I’ll be joining in as often as I can.

Here’s this week’s template and strangely it’s almost the same as a couple of cards I made to go with my PIF for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Unfortunately I can’t show you those until Wednesday and they wouldn’t have been any good for the challenge anyway because there weren't any Waltzing Mouse stamps used on them, so this morning with the aid of my little helper

(I really mean hinderer but don’t tell BoJangles that or he’ll take the huff) I’ve had a play and made this.

No patterned papers used here just a few Distress inks and lots of different stamps including the flowers from the ‘Say it with Style’ set and a frame from ‘Very Vintage Labels No. 1.

This is the front when it's laying flat.

and this is the inside.

Distress Inks - Victorian Velvet, Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy and Forest Green

Waltzing Mouse – Say it with Style (Swirly Flowers), Very Vintage Labels No. 1. (Vintage Frame)
Blond Moments – Just Plain Dotty (Spotty Flower)
Penny Black – Flying Stars
Artemio - Modern Grasses

Craftworks Cards

Nestabilities - Labels No1
Martha Stewart – Frond Branch

Hi Sue, I can be smug because I have the PiF card and it's brilliant but everyone else will have to wait until Wednesday to see it. He he. This is fantastic too love them to bits. Bo Jangles is into crafting I see. Hugs Teresa x

Love the wonderful colors on this and your pretty labels Sue - my cat sits behind me on a chest I have stamps in and often walks across my work space too! Thanks for playing with the WMS sketch this week!
