Happy Birthday Waltzingmouse!

Long time, no write! More about that in a minute but first I have to say, Happy Birthday Waltzingmouse Stamps! WMS is now two years old! Have you shopped at WMS? Don't be frightened that they are over seas. Claire will take care of you. WMS has the best customer service and some of the fastest shipping times around. Everything she has sent me has always been top notch. You cant go wrong there! Also her stamp sets are jam packed with goodness- so much bang for your buck (or pound as the case may be).
Because it is Saturday WMS sketch challenge also has a new sketch up. You can check it out here. You can win a free set! Here is my entry:
I have three different sets on this card. I started with the sweet little doily from the dainty doilies 2 set. I stamped it in white. Next I took another small doily from the Dainty Doilies set and stamped it in a variety of colors on top of the white doily. Next I took the small cupcake from the frame It set and stamped it twelve times. I colored them with copics and cut them out. I used pop dots to adhere them to the card. The icing is colored with sakura clear sparkle gel pen. Finally I used the large cupcake from Frame It to make the tag. I colored it and added some stickles. The sentiment is from the Say It Loud set. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart.
And a little close up of the ribbon and tag. Look at all that sparkly goodness! LOVE!
**** Randomness to Follow*****
So if you stop in often you may have noticed a complete lack of posts for the past ten or so days. I try really hard not to do that but we had a big happening at school that I was in charge of. I run the school's PTO (like a PTA but not affiliated with Nat'l PTA) and our biggest fundraiser of the year is an ice cream social. We have ice cream sundaes, cotton candy, popcorn, face painting, bounce houses, DJ, etc... And yours truly gets to coordinate it all and also go after people who are willing to donate their time or bounce house. It takes every waking moment pretty much to take care of that. We also have a huge basket raffle. I donated one. I thought you might like to see it.
Thats all candy! Aren't you glad your kid did not win it? LOL! Hopefully I will be back with regular posts this week! Thanks, as always, for visiting!
