October SFYTT - Waltzingmouse Stamps

It's the first Saturday of the month, which brings us a brand-new Sketch For You To Try! This month we're being sponsored by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Yay!! If I had a few more stamping hours, I would not hesitate to build my collection of Walzingmouse Stamps! With each new release, I'm drooling over the designs. Classy, clever, trendy, fun, vintage -- there's something for everyone. I have loved watching the WMS catalog grow these past couple of years, and I'm thrilled to work with their stamps for this month's SFYTT!

My stamp choice didn't arrive in time for today's post, but lucky for me, I remembered this super awesome, secret stamp set that I won from Waltzingmouse a while back. That Claire Brennan (WMS owner) wears many hats, you know? Would you believe she actually consorts with the big man in red from up North, Mr. Claus himself? She's worked it out so that elves from all over can enjoy a little stampy holiday fun!

Here's what I've put together:

using this month's sketch, turned sideways:

The papers are from Authentique, and the decorative frame is from Spellbinders Twisted Metal Accents & Tags.

For more sketch interpretation, visit the SFYTT sisters:

1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY {SFYTT} will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
2. This is for fun! Interpret the sketch as you wish and embellish as desired. There are no vendor restrictions, but we would love to see you use the sponsor’s stamps!
3. Each month we will have a Designer of the Month that will be chosen from past month’s participants.
4. Come and play with us on each and every sketch! On Christmas Day 2011 a prize package worth over $200 will be given away to one very lucky and loyal SFYTT stamper that participates in EVERY sketch for the year.
5. To be eligible for the prize package, you must complete ALL of the sketches by each of the deadlines AND link your creation to the link system on that month’s sketch post (the first Saturday of the month). Everyone except for SFYTT Sisters are eligible for the prize package, including Designer of the Month and international players.
6. When posting your sketch creation on your blog, please post the sketch and link back to the sketch post on When posting to online galleries, please use the keyword “SFYTT.”

Hope you can play! Have a great weekend!
