Bonjour.




Ever have one of those days when you just can't string two words together?  Well, that's the kind of day I am having today.  It's not that things are any more crazier than usual, but I just can't seem to kick it into gear so to speak, as does happen to the best of us from time to time so I hear.  Therefore, I think it most prudent to keep my post fairy brief as not to disgrace myself any further.  *wink*

This is a card I quietly crafted with  this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge in mind.  The featured stamp set used on this card is Waltzingmouse Stamps' French Country (sentiment and background stamping) and it's such a charming set. It's just another of Waltzingmouse Stamps many exquisitely crafted sets.  Which reminds me that soon there will be another release.  So exciting!


Thank you so much for cruising by.  Here's to a stellar day for us all!

((GASP))...this is so gorgeous, Jen!!! I love the double stripe background! The pops of red look amazing with the blue and cream! It's such a pretty porcelain looking blue, too! I LOVE that label shape with the folksy stamping, and the wee bit of lace (as Claire would say. What an amazing sketch creation, so happy to see you this week :)!!!!

I love this!!! You are brilliant. That blue is the perfect color for that stamp set. Great take on the sketch, and wonderful use of your new WM stamps.

What a beauty and in some of my favorite colors! I like how you stamped the image twice down the front. My daughter has six children under the age of 10 so I bet I can guess what your day was like and I am one of 9. Hope tomorrow goes more smoothly.

Carla said...

Wow, the pop of red caught my eye right away. I love how you used the "seam" between the border stamps as your line down the vertical middle. And your photo is beautiful.

Karen C. said...

Beautiful card, Jen. The blue colour really is so fresh and crisp. I love the way you've used the blue in the background and again on the main focal panel. the red matting and twine also makes it all 'pop'!

Jill said...

This is the kind of clever interpretation of a sketch that leaves me green with jealousy! Or make that cream, red and BLUE with jealousy! (Love that blue color!) Very country classy, Jen! I am craving that stamp set now!
