My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

There are so many reasons to want to win some MFT goodies, I don't know where to start!   I will not stop trying until I'm successful!  (Ok, just watched the season finale of Seperate Housewives so I'm feeling a bit dramatic!)
This week's sketch was a fairly simple layout, but the possibilities are endless.With the playful banners, it would have been easy to make a cheerful party card, or Springtime cheerfulness. But I have been wanting to use these little cloud dies for a while. With the weather most of the country has been expeiencing it seemed appropriate to address the storms.  Many of us face more personal, gray times, too.  I thought this card would cheer someone  up out there.So...I ventured toward the DARK Side...ok, the dark side with sparkles...hehehe.


Supplies used:
My Mind's Eye, "Lost and Found",  Cosmo Cricket "Gretel";  Silver paper, K & Co. "Wedding",MFT Cloud Trio Die cuts;  Nestabilities Labels #6; Bird and Flower stamps, Inkadinkado "Spring Minis, Black Momento Ink, Gray Stampology. 

Hope Everyone enjoys!

It's a Tea Party!!!

                Waltzing Mouse
       is turning TWO on May 21st!
Hard to believe, because I think they are one of the first blog challenge/stamp companies I followed when I first started blogging about two years ago! 

Anywho, Claire has come up with the cutest project challenge in celebration of this wonderful milestone and the prize is unbelievable!  Over $300us in Waltzing Mouse credit to spend in the store however you want!  And all you have to do is follow some simple rules and instructions found here.

I decided to use the tea bag template.  I can always use a small gift bag for those special little things you buy a friend or loved one.

Here is my "All the Above" tea bag gift packag!  I can just see a bracelet, a pair of earrings, or maybe even some special blend teas!

     I had this little stamp that I found in the dollar bins at Michaels, and paired it with the tag stamp from Inkadinkado.  This was so much fun to make, and it goes together fast! The template is so easy!  I actually cut three more out of different papers to decorate and embelish later depending on the occasion.

     I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and are rested and ready to get back to work!  I spent today cleaning/reorganizing my scrapbook room, and I'm beat. Time to scrap a bit now that I can locate what I want!
     (Except for my little basket stamp from Waltzing Mouse. 
It is still MIA.
I have scoured this room from top to bottom. I'm still blaming the dog!)
