Sooth Away the Day

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope all is well with you. Can you believe it? Another August weekend is just around the corner. So many events seem to be taking place this month. There's no need to list the, but I can asure you there's lots to do before school starts.

Today's card is a card that fits two of this week's challenges. It meets the rquirements for both The Shabby Tea Room and the challenge over at Waltzing Mouse Stamps. It been a while is I have participated in a challenge over at the Shabby Tea Room. As soon as I saw this week's inspirational photo, I knew I wanted to participate in the challenge over there. As for the challenge over at Waltzing Mouse Stamps, well I missed the opportunity to play along last week. I was just happy to be able to do so this week. Just below is a wonderful inspirational photo from the Shabby Tea Room....

Isn't it great! Isn't it?

And, a little further below
is a sketch for Waltzing Mouse.

This is what I drew from it all.

I had a wonderful time creating this one. Initially, I imagined the card to be more blue in color than green, but that's the beauty of creating. That is, you never know what you have until it's finished. Well, I hope you like it and perhaps you'll draw as much inspiration from it as I had fun creating it. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

This turned out lovely Lorie. I really get a kick out of starting a project thinking it will turn out a certain way, only to end up looking completely different than I had imagined. Great project. Thanks for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge this week.

Oooh that trim is so pretty with this sketch! Love the label image along with your little corner tea cup. So glad that you had fun creating with this sketch...I know it was a doozy since I made it up! How come I keep liking everyone else's sketch cards better than my own, giggle!
