Grateful.....

Hello everyone: This week, a dear friend of mine of many years was welcomed to be a Designer for a challenge blog named CAS(E) this Sketch, that friend is Mr. Brian King from Stamp With Brian.  I've been following Brian since day one back in 2013, I always enjoy his amazing talent and sense of humor, his kindness and generosity and, most of all, his friendship.
So, in honor of Mr. King's brand new Designer spot at CAS(E) this sketch, I'm submitting this card and I will play along with a few challenges at the end of this post.


This sweet little mousy is from my other favorite critter stamp set from Penny Black called Hugs. I stamped it onto a panel of water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with Sakura Koi watercolors, I sponged a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink and stamped the sentiment from an old Flourishes set called "Lots of Thoughts".

**********************************************************************

Finishing the inside of my cards is a great habit I picked up a year ago, it saves a lot of time when I mail them.


The sentiment is from another Flourishes stamp set called "Picking Wild Flowers", the little mouse is from a Penny Black set called Critter Party.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.


Time Out Challenges Challenge #100

Moving Along With The Times Challenge #62 "Flowers"


Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
