A Hug

Hello friends!  Did you enjoy the 100th sketch challenge at Waltzingmouse?  I hope you had a chance to play along!  Head over to the Sketch Challenge blog for our Top Mice and the winner of the Guest Mischief Maker!  This week we've got a beauty of a sketch from Edna - 
I started this card off with a brown base stamped with the woodgrain background from Way out West, used a ticket that has old newspaper imagery on it, stamped a label from VV Labels 4 with a sentiment from the new Compact Family set and then a couple of cameos from Cameo Creations.

I hope you have some fun planned for this weekend!  Today I am gardening in my very neglected containers, and Sunday we're heading off for more open houses.  13 and counting until we find the home of our dreams!

Thanks for visiting!

Supplies:  Stamps (WMS), Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Tag - Monsieur collection (Pretty Little Studio), Ink - Garden Green, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Stars (Studio Calico), vintage button, Twine (The Twinery), foam squares, Cuttlebug, Dies (Spellbinders), Ribbon (Crafta)

  4. Another wonderful card!
    We were house hunting yesterday! - didn't find anything we wanted, but at least we know what area we are going to focus on in the future. But it is going to be difficult - I love the city too much - but it really isn't the best place for a kid to grow up here...
    Have a wonderful week-end, hugs, Karin
