wishing you.......

Well, I did make a 2nd card today and I wanted to get it posted to the Waltzingmouse sketch blog because the deadline is tonight.

In just a few minutes to be exact (lol)!! Nothing like getting in under the wire.

I am not happy with this photo but I couldn't seem to get a good one. I am going to look into photo lights tomorrow at the camera store.

I spend time creating a card and then the colors don't come out right. It's so frustrating.

Anyway, I made this card for the sketch on the Waltzingmouse blog.

I really liked the layout that Claire provided for this week. And, I just received my new Waltzingmouse stamps in the mail. They are designed to work in the Labels 4 nestabilities dies. I really am pleased with this purchase. It's the vintage labels 4 collection.

If you are looking for stamps that work with your nestabilities check out Waltzingmouse. She has lots of them.

The arrival of the stamps was perfect, I had the perfect paper and layout, but the camera didn't co-operate. Oh well, somedays you win somedays you lose.
Here are my card details. I used designer paper from Stampin-Up's razzleberry lemonade collection. It coordinates with melon mambo paper. I used melon mambo ribbon and added a pearl button on my bow.

It's the ribbon that didn't photo in the right shade. It looks like it doesn't match with the ink I used.

My sentiment is from the Verve set "framed wishes". That's my card for this challenge.

It's late and time to turn out the lights in charmed life land for another day.
