October Friends of Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz



Hi everyone!! This  month's Friends of Waltzing Mouse Waltz is themed Autumn/ Harvest.

To play along you must link up your blog on the WMS forum and post your entry on your blog.  If you aren't registered on the WMS forum it just takes a minute to do so.

There is also a thread for chatting and participating in our contest!

For this month's Waltz competition you have to guess the theme of one of the stamp sets being released in November. Each participating DT members will have a one-word clue on their blogs.

Once you get them all you hop over to the thread and leave your guess, to be in with a chance of winning a stamp set of your choice. 

I used the Teeny Trees stamp set for my card today. {if you REALLY want to get your hands on this set just leave a comment HERE - it's the last day to enter my blog candy}. The sentiment is from Bountiful Baskets Additions.


I just love these stamps, however I was really careless today and lost one of the fabby leaf stamps.. I kid you not it  was like trying to find a NEEDLE in a haystack. but of course it turned up stuck to the bottom of another stamp set!

This is my first Friends of Waltzing Mouse blog waltz as DT member for WMS and yesterday was my first Sketch Challenge as same... but oh yeah... guess who forgot to post it.. *blush*. I had that feeling all day like I was forgetting something but not for the life of me could I figure out what. So here it is .... a day late.. great start, eh?!!


I am loving long cards at the moment. I used the Musical Backgrounds stamps, with Close to my Heart 'Topiary' in on my green paper, leaving it a little distressed on the sides, then I used my scissors to distress the edges of the paper. The heart and sentiment is from Seasons of Love - Tags (Nestie Friendly) set.

I got the beautiful ribbon from MemrieMare on Etsy.

 I do hope you can join us for this month's blog waltz!! Have fun!!

Lisa Hjulberg said...

I love your autumn trees with leaves falling to the ground, Sandie. Clever!!! And of course I love your sketch card, too, which just goes to show that quick can be beautiful!!!

I've "lost" more clear stamps than I care to tell you, eventually finding them stuck to something. I keep telling myself to devise some sort of habit of putting them in a particular spot whilst using them so that it won't happen again, but I never listen to my own advice. Ha!

Ren-Yi said...

wow - both cards are really beautiful and stunning. i love how they each are two or three color combos at most. superb...
