Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - Happy Birthday Doilies!

It's Saturday which means it's time to check out this weeks' Waltzingmouse Sketch for inspiration!

And here it is!
and here's my card.

I used two of the May Release Waltzingmouse stamps sets on my card today -  Dainty Doilies Large and Say it Loud.  I just love all the sentiments you can create with the Say it Loud set!  Have you checked it out yet??  As you can see - this is a really CAS (clean and simple) card -  I just stamped the doilies and sentiment on a white panel - added one rhinestone and popped it up on a Hibiscus card with foam tape!  Can't get much quicker or easier than this!

Now please hop on over to the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch!

Then make your own card using at least one Waltzingmouse stamp and the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 5/12/11 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse !!

Winners are announced each Saturday along with the new sketch challenge. And every week one lucky entry will win a free WMS stamp set of choice!!

I hope you have fun plans for this wonderful spring weekend!   And  Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there - my son and his girlfriend are taking me and DH out to dinner!!  No dishes for me on Sunday!

And here's a note from our  WMS DT coordinator, Lynn,   regarding the winner from the May release and other opportunities to win:
