Hi – Happy Saturday. Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge blog, brining you inspiration and enthusiasm for Waltzingmouse Stamps each week. We hope that you will find our samples so inspiring that you will play along with us.
Before we begin the challenge for this week, we are thrilled to announce the Top Mouse awards from last week’s Sketch Challenge.
This week’s Top Mouse awards go to:
Wow – amazing, ladies. Congratulations for capturing the attention of the Mischief Makers and Design Team members.

Thank you for participated in the challenge.

Congratulations Gitte. We appreciate your participation in this week’s challenge. Please e-mail Claire at Claire.email@example.com. Provide her with your contact information and set choice, and she will get your selected set on its way to you.
If you are ready, we have another fun sketch to share with you this week, created by our Mischief Maker, Kelly Schirmer.
To help motivate you, take a peek at the wonderful projects the Mischief Makers have for you today:
....and projects from two of our WMS Design Team members:
Are you ready to get started on your own creation? Lay your hands on that card stock, stamps and ink and create a card, tag, scrapbook layout or any paper project - just remember to include the basic sketch in your design. We ask that you use at lease one WMS image on your submission. We reserve the right to remove entries that do not comply with the guidelines as it is not fair to the players who do. Including WMS images on your project adds to the creative inspiration we gain each week from your wonderful creations.
Remember to post your projects using Inlinkz no later than 12:00 noon Central time on Friday, August 5, 2011. We will announce the winner of the stamp set and the new Top Mouse Award winners when the new sketch challenge is posted on Saturday, August 6. Please use a direct link to your project and feel free to enter as many times as you like!
You don’t have to have a blog to play along with the sketch challenge. If you upload your project to any on-line galleries or forums, please use the keyword of WMSC58. Better yet, why not upload it to your album in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Gallery?
Got a question about the challenge? Want to chat about how much you LOVE the challenge? We have a forum waiting for you. Just CLICK HERE. We’re anxious to hear your comments-suggestions–whatever. Drop by and say hello!
Sketch Archives: You can now find all of the past Waltzingmouse Stamp sketches all in one place. Take a peek right HERE. It’s a wonderful source of inspiration.
Are you a BIG CHEESE? We have dedicated a special thread in the Waltzingmouse Forum (under ‘The Gallery’ topic) where you can let us know when you have uploaded a project to the WMS Gallery.
The person selected as the BIG CHEESE will receive a promotional code eligible for $10 off a purchase from the WMS Store and their project will be posted to a special Big Cheese album in the WMS Gallery. (Another great reason to post your projects in the WMS gallery.)
A new thread in the forum will be posted each Monday and a new Big Cheese will be chosen every Wednesday.
WALTZINGMOUSE STAMPS SOAP (STAMP OF APPROVAL PARADE) begins Monday so be sure to check out the Design Team blogs then for great inspiration!
One last thing – If you don’t already have our Sketch Challenge Blinkie posted on your blog, we would be honored if you would grab the blinkie HTML code that may be found on the sidebar and find a place for it in one of your sidebars. Displaying it on your blog helps us spread the Waltzingmouse Challenge word.
Have a wonderfully creative week!
