Welcome to Our Table

Boy - I don't know what I've been doing - but I sure haven't been posting to the old blog!  My other life (the non-stamping one!) sort of took over for a few days I guess -  sometimes you just have to take a break, don't you know?!

So - to remedy that situation -  here is a card I made for this week's Cas(e) this Sketch
as well as the CAS on Sunday challenge - Welcome Home - make a new home themed card.  Now my card has the sentiment 'Welcome to our Table' on it -  and I'm thinking this could be a card to a new neighbor inviting them over -   or it could be on the table when you have new neighbors to dinner - so it's kind of a loose translation of the challenge!
When I looked at  the sketch  and was trying to think new neighbor or new home to combine the challenges -  I looked through my stamps for that theme and when I saw the Welcome to our Table sentiment (from Waltzingmouse - Country Labels 4)  - the shape on the sketch suddenly became a table - I thought this piece of the MFT open scallop doily die looked like a lacy table cloth -  so there it is - popped up on foam dots.  I just added two enamel dots on either side of the sentiment.

 Just a heads up -  I'll be posting a project using a brand new template from Creations by AR on Sept 17th

and Claire is releasing some wonderful new Waltzingmouse stamp sets on Sept 19th so I'll be having sneak peaks starting Sept 16th

Lots coming up so I hope you'll stop by!
