Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #99

Hello everyone!
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
And this is the best kind of weekend...
3 days!!
Can I have a big YAY!!
Granted...3 of my kiddies are now out for Summer break so my 3 day is going to turn into a 9 week weekend...
once we get past just a few days more with Hunter.
But next school year she will be on an almost exact schedule to the others...
a few slight differences...
a first in about 9 years!!
One more thing that will make my life a slight bit easier...
no complaints there!

And since it's the weekend...
it's Saturday...
you know what that means...
it's time for another wonderful Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!!
And we have another fabulous one from the inspiring Lynn Mercurio...

I know I don't pull out lace and layers often but I did with this one...
this sketch just kind'a says "lace" right?

I used the gorgeous houndstooth label from Very Vintage Labels 25 and did a little selective inking with this fabulous sentiment from Roses in Bloom...
a new-to-me set that truly must see more ink from me very soon!
Some patterned paper from Crate Paper...
gorgeous lace from Waltzingmouse...
and a beautiful bloom that has been in my stash for way too long just waiting for the perfect card...
thank you Cathy!

OK...are you ready to join us and show us your creative take on this one?

Love it!

I hope everyone has a wonderfully safe holiday weekend full of family and friends...
but I also hope that during this time we all take a moment to stop reflect on the reason for this holiday and if possible...
thank a serviceman or woman for the sacrifice's that they make for us each day...
and say a prayer for those that have given their lives so that we may enjoy these moments.

  1. There are so may pretty roses in your card! So pretty!

    Have a good weekend - and a good summer. Kathryn has a few more weeks before she finishes school!

  2. Renee your card is just beautiful. I love your red die cut sentiment and the patterned paper you used. Your flower is amazing!

  3. Ok! Now that I have some stamps and it's a long weekend I have no excuse not to play! I love your card, Renee. I especially love that you used that beautiful flowered paper and the center panel on the card, cuz I otherwise would have tried stamping it. And I also really love that you added lace and the bottom edge instead of punching some paper. Beautiful! So tell me - how badly do I need the tag and dies???

  4. Lol ,Suzanne, Renee will tell you they are a must have:)
    Beautiful card , yes the lace is just perfect ! I like the flowery paper too.
    Oh how I remember the driving schedule, glad that will be a bit easier for you when school starts. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Renee, as always, so beautiful and your bloom is so the lace trim and the pearls add such a nice touch of elegance.

  6. Beautiful use of that floral paper, and the lace is gorgeous, Renee!

  7. Love the lace, colors, and flowers! Perfect!

  8. Beautiful card, Renee! That patterned paper is just gorgeous and so pretty with the lace & flower! Sorry I am so late commenting on your blog. Spent the weekend outside working!! I am definitely going to cut down on the amount of daylilies come fall!

  9. So beautiful, Renee! Love your gorgeous flower, the background with the lace and the pearls!
