Ooh-La-La

oohlala

Good morning!  It’s our holiday Monday here in Canada so I am enjoying a nice, lazy morning at home with my local t.v. news and a pot of coffee!  I wasn’t joking when I told you I had some fun inky time in the studio this weekend.  I was so happy to have some time to play with this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!  I dug out my fav chicken wire stamp and made sure it showed up somewhere on the card! LOL  Once I was done, I realized I had inadvertently used the colours from this week’s ColourQ challenge!  Bonus!  I don’t usually match a sketch challenge with a colour challenge, but since it happened by accident, I’m running with it!  Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic Monday!

Oh la la is right. Love how the sentiment is offset by the doily. Awesome card for both challenges! Off to work...while the rest of the house is sleeping in for their day off! Hope you get some more inky time today!

Lots of pretty layers to see here, Maureen, love the pretty white ribbon amongst all the strips! Thanks for sharing your card with us at the colourQ.

Pretty in pink it is :) Enjoy your day off. Jealous of your inky time LOL. Spent all of Sat and Sun at the soccer pitch with my son's tournament but well worth it - they won the tournament!! The last game was amazing. Both teams brought it and just as we thought we had the win they scored with under a minute to go so it had to go to a shoot out - eeek!! We won 3-2 in the shoot out and there was a lot of celebrating as they were a silver team in a gold team tournament. I'm one proud mama today :)

I just love some chicken wire in pink :) LOVE how you layered those nesties and have the sweet sentiment peeking out. You are a champion patterned paper picker! Always such beautiful choices for your projects, Maureen!
