I hope you're enjoying your weekend, it's raining cats and dogs here and the wind is howling but it's mild and that's much better than snow and frozen pipes! : ) Here's my offering for this week's new sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I have to admit I did find this one a little tricky! Here's the sketch. I think it was all the boxes that threw me!

I feel like I'm having a few off days in terms of my creativity, not loving the results. Anyway, I'll plough on and hopefully my mojo will return soon!

The pretty pink hearts I stamped using the Sweethearts set from Waltzingmouse Stamps in rose bud ink. The 'guess who?' sentiment is from the same stamp set. I used Text-It from Waltzingmouse Stamps to stamp the text panel. I do love my pink and white baker's twine, I finally found (thanks to Pauline!) a great store that has lots of pretty colors and ships to Ireland The Ribbon Reel. My fav's are aqua, yellow, green, pink... you'll be seeing it quite a bit here!

The background paper is from I luv u the papers from MKC at the Digichick. Ok, don't forget to check out the fabulous designs from the rest of the team!! There's a fabulous selection to inspire you!

Oh and don't forget the friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz on Jan17th, the theme is Valentines/Love!! Do join us, it's always lots of fun! : )
