Ahoy Matey!



I finally got a chance to ink up this adorable set of Waltzingmouse Stamps (THANK YOU Jean!) for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch.

It's so cute, and I used a mixture of coloring and paper piecing. I thought the little sub was perfect for piecing and I'm using papers from the new Avonlea collection as well as one pattern from La Belle Vie.



Here's what the Avonlea papers look like. Gorgeous right? And as an Anne of Green Gables fan, I really couldn't pass them up (still trying to get these to show up so they don't look smooshed)!



I invested in some Spectrum Noir markers back in late June. There was a huge sale at AC Moore and I had a gift card from my mother-in-law for my birthday, so I got a few sets, and I'm slowly starting to incorporate coloring into my routine.

The little tag is from the new Cricut Artiste cartridge, and that beautiful seam binding is from Hydrangea Hippo.

A fun card to make while watching some Olympics. Hope that you are having a great day!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock: CTMH - Avonlea and La Belle Vie papers, Desert Sand Cardstock, Bulk White Daisy card base
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Half Pint Heroes
Ink: CTMH - Black
Other: CTMH - Cricut Artiste Cartridge, Bonding Memories Adhesive; Tombow Mono Adhesive; Helmar Zapdots; Hydrangea Hippo - Blue Seam Binding; Spectrum Noir markers: TB9, EB1, BGR1, FS6, EB2, DG3, CG2
