Our True Strength

Did you bring your dance card?
I just think the 17th of every month is a great day.
Cuz I just think that Waltzingmouse stamps...ROCKS!!!
As I have no stamps what-so-ever for Americana from WMS
I have to will improvise.
I thought about the DCWV patriotic papers from last summer...perused my
WMS stamp sets and when I found the sentiment I went with the house
in Celtic Heritage.
PAPER PIECED
The sky and lawn are sponged in blues and greens respectively.
I used the stars from Teeny Trees for the south side of the house.
Oh, yes, the thatched roof is sponged, also. The pathway is kraft paper dotted
with a marker.
The big stars are triple layered and made into buttons with the CAD.
That smaller star has a tiny white star brad in the middle.
The sentiment? Can you guess which stamp set it came from?
Keeping this post short there may be a few more blogs to get to use your dance card.
With the kraft path and small frames this card is good for the Kraft Journal's
Make it Monday Father's Day challenge.
Thanks for stopping waltzing by!
