Good evening,

Recently I purchased my very first Waltzing Mouse Stamps…and I am in love with them! They stamp so beautifully and best of all they are great value for money as you get so many stamps in the one set!! Today’s card uses the Half Pint Heroes stamp set (and when I say value for money – this little set has about 45 stamps in it…oh and the sentiments are so varied and cute!!).
So now that I own some WM stamps, I thought I’d have a go in the current Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #46.

And here is my take. Just like Kelly Schirmer’s DT take, I turned the sketch up-side-down. I also put Glossy Accents over the window, but it didn’t show in the photo all that well.


Stamps: Waltzing Mouse Stamps – Half Pint Heroes, Hero Arts Envelope Pattern (S5507)
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Memento – Tuxedo Black, Vers Color – Atlanta
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured single fold), white card
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, blending stubs, foam dimensionals, Basic Grey Buttons, Glossy accents, Copic Marker, black felt pen, Creative Memories circle cutters, Cre8tiv Mini stack paper – Baby series, Cuttlebug embossing folder – Polka Dots, Cuttlebug.

Thanks for coming by my neck of the woods!

Until next time,
