Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch - With Sympathy

Wow - it's been a while since I've done the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge - did you miss me??!! 

Well -  here's the wonderful sketch - designed by the Head Mouse-tress herself! ( ie - Claire!)
I needed some sympathy cards for my stash and I thought this sketch would work nicely.

I used one of the background stamps from Pic Nic Patterns and the sentiment is from Frame It.  I made the felt flower by cutting a circle into a spiral and rolling it up starting at the outside.  This will make it a little bulky to mail -  so you could use a button or flat flower if that is of concern.

I hope you'll join us this week and link your sketch card over at the WMS Sketch blog - you could win a Waltzingmouse Stamp set!

We're getting rain all weekend here in New England - so there just may be a lot of stamping going on in my craft room!   

and don't forget to check over on the WMS blog to see if you won during our DT Blog waltz last week!
