WMSC 52 – A Year to Remember…

Posted on Jun 18, 2011 in Waltzingmouse, Waltzingmouse Sketch | 11 comments

Hey y’all!

Today is a special day over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog, because this marks the 52nd week of sketches! That’s right! 1 full year of sketches and fun!

Happy 1st Birthday WMSC!

As I was reflecting back on this first year with WMSC, my memory immediately brought me to WMSC #9, which is the first sketch that I participated in as one of the first Design Team members there. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be a part of one of my favorite crafty companies out there, and so I wanted to remember that time and channel those exciting feelings as I created my card.

Here’s the sketch from Week #9:

And here’s my new card…


“Hip Hip Hooray!” for an AMAZING stamp company and it’s beautiful sketch challenge blog! :) I’m so proud to be a part of the WMSC family as an alum, and I can’t wait to see what the next year holds for you!

As for my card, I used Bitty Banners, Vintage Banners, Holiday Labels No. 14, and Musical Backgrounds. For the musical background, I spritzed some Glimmer Mist onto my stamp and then stamped it while wet. I can’t believe that I haven’t done this already! I’m in absolute love with how it turned out!

*Edited to add*: Here’s the color board for the card:

Alrighty, be sure to go check out what the other Mischief Makers and DT members have used to celebrate this awesome day! Then join us and play along with YOUR favorite sketch from this first year at WMSC.

I can’t wait to see what you all create!

Enjoy your weekend!
