Waltzingmouse Blog Party ....

.... Wow, where has the time gone - it's already 17th of the month.  That means it's time for the monthly Waltzingmouse Blog PartyThis post gives all the details about the party and this month the theme is LOVE.  What does love mean to you?  Family, friends, pets, religion, country - well I might be a bit obvious, but I've gone for love of family - specifically our daughter.  Here's the card I made:



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - My Heart, Sheriff, Say It with Style, Half Pint Heroines
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Summer Starfruit, Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Basic Grey; Versamark
Accessories:  SU Card - Summer Starfruit; SU Ribbon - Melon Mambo; Silver embossing powder and white card from stash




I used this week's Colour Q challenge - cQc172 for my card - just love them, so bright and vibrant.  The layout is based on the current Mojo Monday - MOJO276 sketch.  I made the card from SU Summer Starfruit card.  On the white panel I stamped the lovely wood grain leaves down the side and then randomly stamped hearts and sentiments over the rest of the panel.  I attached the ribbon and then attached the panel to the card with dimensional tape.  Next I took a photo of Kathryn (taken in San Diego last summer) and sized it to fit inside the Sheriff Star.  I stamped the Sheriff Star in Versarmark and embossed with silver powder, then cut it out and adhered it with dimensional tape.  For the inside I used a mixture of My Heart and Half Pint Heroines, but kept it really simple.

Now I'm off to have a party!  Enjoy!!
