Love and Friendship

Hello friends! Today is blog party day at Waltzingmouse Stamps! If this is new to you, every 17th of the month, fans of WMS get together to celebrate! This month we're celebrating St. Patrick's Day/Irish/green! It is 3/17 after all... :)

I made this card based on the wonderful sketch this week from one of our very own Mischief Makers, Renee Lynch -

I started with a kelly green card base and some fun patterned paper, stamped the cottage image from Irish Blessings onto cream cardstock and then cut it using a labels 14 die. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set onto the lower right corner of the card and then finished it with some crochet trim a gorgeous satin ribbon, and three vintage buttons.

There's still a little time to party with us - head over to the Waltzingmouse Blog for more information! And, there's plenty of time to play along with the sketch challenge this week! Link up by Friday for a chance to be crowned Top Mouse and one lucky participant will win a stamp set of choice!

Supplies: Stamps - Irish Blessings (WMS), DP - Mariposa Collection (DCWV), Cardstock - Garden Green, Very Vanilla (SU!), Ink - Chocolate Chip (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Crochet Trim (Crafta), Ribbon (recycled, my stash), Twine (PTI), vintage buttons, foam squares
