WMS Pajama Party!

Hello fellow partygoers!

It's the first day of Spring for us and it's an absolute beauty here in Sydney...clear blue skies and endless sunshine. Am I making you jealous?

Now I didn't think I was going to be up to any of the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party challenges due to a bad case of the sniffles but I have managed to get one done.  I've had a bit of help from  Colour Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches - can you tell I wasn't up to thinking any original thoughts last night? I also chose to do the 'golden oldies' challenge, which meant that I didn't have to think about which stamps to use either.

From memory, the first WMS stamps I bought were Musical Backgrounds, Very Vintage Labels no 4 and Fancy Phrases.  I used the teeny tiny musical note background for stamping my panel and to decorate my butterfly die cut, then popped it on to the stamped label. The 'hello' sentiment is probably my most used stamp out of my entire stamp's the perfect size and seems to fit on any card I make!

Since there's an 'Anything Goes' challenge over at Simon Says Stamp, I'm going to pop it over there too!

Well, that's all for me folks - my head is about to explode...happy partying! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment,
