Witchy Wishes...WMSC12 30

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, August 28, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , ,

Hi There :) Another week has flown by, Saturday again & time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Here is my take on this week's fun sketch: I spotted this fun Echo Park Halloween themed paper at my LSS & fell in love with those big multi-colored polka dots & the funky font. I have been wanting to create something using the neat Wanda's Brew image from the Waltzingmouse Wanda's Pantry set so I snatched this paper up & skipped out the store! You know how much I love to make lil' tags - well, I inked up the lil' Happy Halloween sentiment & created a tag using the teensy S4-190 Labels Four die template.

I took the liberty & flipped the sketch horizontallyAs you can see up close, how nicely the S4-190 Labels Four die template fits around Wanda & all that neat verbage :)What do you think of that Ric Rac border? I made that using the S4-243 Ric Rac Diamond Borderabilities® Petite die template. One of the many things I love about the Spellbinders™ Borderabilities® besides the ability to cut, emboss & stencil is the fact that they cut your cardstock flawlessly without jamming up like so many hand held border punches of mine do! grrr.... I don't know about you, but it really makes my blood boil when my precious piece of cardstock gets jammed & chewed up in a punch! So if you are looking for an alternative for making borders...I'm just sayin' :)

That's all I have for today! Thanks for looking & I hope you enjoy your weekend :)
