Hi there! This card is for the sketch challenge on SCS found here

I love these challenges and was happy to be able to work on one today. I've been prepping for our Holiday Card Making Class this weekend. I can hardly wait, its always fun to get together with the girls to stamp!! :-)

This card features the little Penny Black mouse in his flying balloon basket, sending out a wealth of flowers to someone who needs them. :-) I've used a white card for the base along with Almost Amethyst, Basic Black, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink cardstock. The Designer paper is Tea Party. The image was cut out & matted with Nesties, and the sentiment is from an old old SU! set Mini Mates, I sure love all the words in this set, they are really versatile and work perfectly in punched out circles. The embellies are brads & ribbon from my stash.
I can't believe we are almost at the middle of August!! I am so excited, DD and I are going to pick raspberries and peas tomorrow at the local garden market!! There might even be some cucumbers ready, anyone got a fantastic garlic/dill pickle recipe they'd like to share? I always like to try something new. I think I'll do some pickled carrots as well. mmmmm!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day :-)
