WMSC # 116

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!
It's been a super, super busy week at work with parent meetings and teacher-student-parent development discussion meetings in the evenings so I'm so, so glad it is finally Saturday! The only thing I have booked for today is a gym class so hopefully I'll get some crafting time in the afternoon - just keep my fingers crossed my mojo isn't gone - something which often happens when I'm tired or actually have time to craft (-; !
I think it was the terrible autumn weather that we have here at the moment, that inspired me to make a summery sunshine card for my sample for the Waltzing Mouse Stamps Sketch challenge this week.



 
I really enjoyed working with this sketch by no one other than the super sweet and super talented Claire Brennan:



For wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the DT's and for all the info you need for participating and your chance to win a full set of WMS of your choice go straight HERE!

For my card I used Waltzing Mouse Stamps from My Island. The patterned papers I used are from October Afternoon.
I'm entering this for the challenges at:
 
the Layer challenge at the Kraft Journal
 



Have a great day, hugs, Karin!

Totally understand you; school can be very busy, especially if you have to go back in the evenings... it's really tiresome! I have that same problem :)
Have a great school year!!
