A Last Saturday Waltz

Hello bloggers,

Tonight has been spent with a hoard of females (and the odd male) sobbing into a hanky, whilst watching Les Miserables.  Not since Beaches (remember that one?) have I heard quite so much snuffling at the cinema. It was a fantastic movie so I thoroughly recommend it...unless you're not a fan of which case steer well clear!

Well I continue to sob since it's the last ever Saturday sketch challenge over at Waltzingmouse this week. But not to worry, it sounds like there's still going to be challenges on the main blog in the coming months so my stamps will continue to get a good workout! This week the sketch is from Edna Morrisedie:

Santa bought the Half Pint Heroes set so I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this one. I  used one of the doiles from the small Dainty Doiles set for a planet. The 'moon' is some ancient silver paper I had which has been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and I embossed the sentiment to the side, since I couldn't exactly fit it on to the rocket.

It's late now so I'm off to cry copiously into my pillow, whilst dreaming of singing a duet with Hugh Jackman...

Thanks for stopping by,

Claire x

  5. OMG Claire, this card is out of this world. Love the starry night sky and the "planet" (I thought initially it was thrust was the rocket's engines). The moon rock is great too and is that button a little lump of cheese ;) So sad the weekly sketch is ending, but I'll pop over and see your lovely creations regularly so I can be amazed and inspired.
