Waltzingmouse September Pajama Party!

I am SO excited that the WMS Pajama Parties are BACK!  Claire posts the challenges the 1st of every month over on the WMS Blog so you can create ahead of time - and post them on the 14th of every month!  Easy Peasy!  I hope you'll come to the party!?! You have 24 hours to post your creations.
So - there are 4 challenges at every Pajama Party -  this month I made a project for each of them.
1. Doodle Do Challenge - stamp an image or sentiment and then add some hand doodling!

For my 'doodling' card I used the following stamp sets - Hello Happy Thanks, Cabin Plaid Backgrounder and Peace and Plenty.
Here's a close up of my doodling -  I made lots of dots on the oak leaves to color them using 4 different colors of Copics!
 2. Too cute to Spook Challenge - Make a project featuring Halloween cuteness - we want to see sweet treats and dinky delectables for Halloween - the sort of thing you might rustle up for the wee folks.
I made a tag to decorate a little plain kraft treat bag for my Halloween Cuteness project.
I embossed the black tag that I cut with the Stitched tag die using Ranger Snowflake Tinsel Powder and the Zig Zag Backgrounder stamp and the bat ghost from Boo and Friends with Ranger Black Sparkle Embossing powder - I love all the sparkle that these powders created!  I used the coordinating Batty die to cut him out.
 I tied orange and black wrinkled seam tape through the hole on the tag and clipped the tag to the bag with a Ranger Hinge Clip.
3. Old Pajamas Challenge -  Make a project using any of your older Waltzingmouse Christmas sets - Claire asked the DT to play along with this challenge using the Seasonal Flourish set along with any other set we might like to use.
I embossed one of the sentiments from Seasonal Flourish and the crown from Seasonal Remedies using Ranger Snowflake Tinsel Embossing powder. I added clear Tiny Twinkles to the points of the crown and layered the blue Coredinations panel to a panel of brushed silver - and adhered that to my white card base.
I used another sentiment from the Seasonal Flourish set inside the card - adding 3 more clear Tiny Twinkles.
The embossed sentiment really sparkles IRL -  as the powder has little pieces of glitter in it -  I think you can see it a little bit in this photo (see the dots on the swirl??! - they are glitter)
4.  Bedtime Story Sketch
For the final Pajama Party Challenge - I made a Thanksgiving card using the sketch.  I stamped the gorgeous Great Owl, die cut the owl, his feet and the branch and over-stamped the circles with both the wheel stamp and star stamp from the set, punching out the circles. I embossed the owl in Ranger Brown Embossing Powder and colored him with Ranger Distress Markers.
The sentiment is from an older WMS set - Peace and Plenty
I hope I have inspired you to come to the WMS Pajama Party with us??!!  I can't wait to see what you link up there for one or all of these fun challenges!
