Waltzingmouse August 2013 Pajama Party





I am so happy to be playing for the first time in the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party.  I missed the first one when I was on vacation.  I even bought the stamps we are supposed to feature, so I am all set.  I'll jump right in, because it's getting late here, and I am tired.

Challenge #1:  Tie a Knot in it and Challenge #2:  Get Nauty--I have made several cards and projects that use Tying the Knot and Ocean bound together, so I will enter them all into both challenges and see if I get lucky.  You will see that I pulled out some colors and liked them so much I just stuck with them for a while--SU Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, and Baked Brown Sugar.






I made these little treat totes for the gals who came to my house for Stamp a Faire last weekend.  I filled them with Hershey's Kisses.  


Here is a little peek at the other side of the totes (but don't look too hard, because this side has WPlus9 and no Waltzingmouse...)  Can you see one for Kim, Marybeth and Cathy?


The next challenge is a Color Inspiration challenge, and I used Tying the Knot.



Golden Oldies:  My very first Waltzingmouse stamp set was Eat Cake.  My friends Renee and Cathy were all over me to buy some Waltzingmouse stamps.  They even sent me stamped images so I could start playing along in the weekly challenges.  Gotta love friends like that, right?

I love Eat Cake as much now as I did when I bought it 2 years ago.  It has my very favorite birthday sentiment--which I used on today's card.



Well, this is the part of the pajama party where I yawn and hit the sack,  so that's it for me.  Let me know if you have any questions about supplies--I'm too tired out to write them all out.  I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done.


Thanks for Visiting
