Hugs and Kisses - Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge


I hope everyone is enjoying their long holiday weekend. I've been enjoying some gardening, summer sunshine, and catching up on housework since coming home from our vacation.

I decided to play along in the newest Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge this week. The summer sun was getting hot, so I needed a break in the craft room.

I used two decorative circle stamps from the Rescue Remedies stamp set by Waltzingmouse to create a sort of background paper. 

And I am just loving the sentiments from Sweethearts collection. It's the perfect sentiment for my daughter who I intend on giving this card to. She is going to be babysitting her little brother this summer - so any words of encouragement I can give her for being so "grown up" I am all for doing. I think a little gift card to her favorite, Barnes and Noble bookstore is well deserved and will fit nicely with this card.

Anyway, I've got run - I'm heading out back into the garden to plant more flowers. I need to race to finish up before the sun goes down. There's not much daylight left!
