This card combines this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and Splitcoaststampers’ Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge.

Waltzingmouse is celebrating one year of weekly sketch challenges.  So for their sketch this week, you are to choose any sketch from over the past year.  I chose Sketch #36.

The CAS Challenge was to make a “Tall and Thin” card rather than the traditional A2 size.  This card measures 6-1/4″ x 3-1/2″.  It fits perfectly into a letter sized envelope.

The inside has just enough space for a short and sweet message.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Update on the Southern Arizona fires:

My son Jeff and family have been evacuated from their home.

Here is a YouTube Video that he took right before they left.

He said the fire has been reported to have flames up to 200′ high, and the winds are up to 50 mph.  The local favorite restaurant has burnt to the ground.  Homes and businesses are being lost, and lives are being turned upside down.  Prayers for these folks are appreciated.  They need rain!!


Stamps: Waltzingmouse ‘Teeny Trees’

Papers: Papertrey Ink ‘Select White’

Inks: Memento ‘Tuxedo Black’; SU ‘Garden Green’ and ‘Taken with Teal’

Accessories: Nestabilities Classic Circles; Gingham Ribbon; SU Ice Cream Parlor Grosgrain Ribbon and Buttons

    The card is lovely…a great sense of circles and dimension!

  2. Oh such a fun way to use that sketch! Love the little windows with the Teeny Trees, and the spots of color are fab! I am a little partial to that gingham ribbon…looks great paired with the colorful one to match the buttons.
