Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #108

It has been a very busy week and I am so happy that Saturday is finally here! Time for some fun and card making. First for a bit of fun...my mom and I have been on the quest for the perfect grilled cheese sandwich so we headed over to Stanford Mall to a new little place called The Melt. All they serve is grilled cheese and soup.  It was well worth the drive, both the soup and the sandwich were over the top and we will go back.  Next on to some card making and I spent way too much time on this card and it was just so simple...have you ever had one of those stamps that no matter how careful you are you just don't seem to be able to stamp all of the images right where you want them??? I won't tell you have many tries it took me to get it right but once I did I was doing the happy dance.  I have been wanting to play with this set from WMS since I arrived home from San Diego and thought today's sketch challenge from Waltzingmouse would be the perfect chance.  The patterned paper is from Paper Source, I purchased it last summer and knew one day I would have the perfect stamp set for it...the images are of splashes and it really blends well with several of the PTI card stock colors, so a match made in heaven if you ask me.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the Olympics too! Thanks for taking a peek.

  3. The dinner looks great!!
    I will have to try a pepperjack grilled cheese next time...
    but we usually save those dinners for winter months when soup and sandwiches are perfect on cold nights! :)
    And this card is fabulous!!
    Love the patterned paper...
    the colors that set the tone are perfect for this set...
    and I die over that fabby bow!!
    Just got mine this past week and haven't had a chance to really play yet...
    but I'm setting aside some time later for play! :)

  6. What a great card. I love how well that image goes with that patterned paper. Good thing you saved it! Sorry you had such trouble stamping, but you wouldn't know it from seeing the card--it is perfect, from the stamping to the bow. That lunch looks pretty darn good, too. Is that place better than the one in the city?

  8. You were very wise to pick up that paper last year, it's wonderful! Glad you got your stamping the way you wanted it, that's frustrating, but in the end it looks great! The sandwich looks delicious too.
