100th Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

Wow - can you believe today is the 100th Waltzingmouse Sketch??!!  and it's a great little sketch - check it out! (with new colors even! - thank you Anya!)

I turned the sketch on it's side and used a sweet photo of my dear Grand Nephew, James.  I made the card for his first birthday which was May 27th but we are celebrating it on June 9th.  James is wearing his new helmet that he got along with a carriage that attaches to his Dad's bike so they can go riding together.  He is sitting on the box that the carriage came in with his PJ's and new helmet on -  this pic just CRACKS me up every time I see it!
I used stamps from several WMS sets on this card -  the checkerboard stamp is from Off Beat Backgrounds, the banner outline is from Bitty Banners, (these fit in the Nestability Banner dies - but I just cut this out by hand!) the #1 and ALREADY are from Free Spirit Sentiments and the circle stamping is from Faux Fun Circles.  The frame is die cut with Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities.  I popped the banner and circle up with foam tape.  And now I'm ALREADY for James 1st Birthday Party!

Here's James getting strapped in for his ride on the bike path with Dad!

We hope you'll join us making a card with the 100th WMS sketch -  check it out on the WMS Sketch Challenge blog.

This is such a fab card for your great nephew, he is such a cutie, but don't they grow up so fast?! I remember when mine were like that, all cuddly and sweet.
