WMSC6 AND Friends of WMS Blog Waltz!

To see my Friends of Speedy the Cat Challenge card please scroll down to my post below this!

Today we have two WMS challenges going on - Yikes are we busy little mice!!

We've got the Friends of WMS Blog Waltz which is a color challenge this month - you can find all the deets in the WMS Forum in the Playroom under Blog Waltzes AND we've got the Saturday WMS Sketch Challenge!
I combined both challenges today - the colors to use for the blog waltz are blue, green and a neutral.


I used Afternoon Tea and Afternoon Tea Sentiments creating a little table cloth with my paper doily. I made my own saucer using an oval punch! Everything is sponged in Ranger Distress Tea Dye Ink.

If you're blog waltzing with us - be sure you check out all of the Design Team cards and look for the SSSSSSpecial watermark - count up how many there are on all our posts and enter that number over at the Forum in the Playroom. One correct guesser and one random blog waltz participant will each win a free WMS stamp set!!

For those of you playing with the sketch this week - check out the other DT samples on the challenge blog - make your sketch card and get it posted on Mr. Linky by Thursday 7/22/10 at 11:59 pm EST

I can't wait to see what you create!
