Waltzing Sketch

I guess it doesn’t matter if you work or not when it comes to the weekend. I thought I wouldn’t look forward to it each and every weekend but I do because: I get to sleep in a bit and hubby + M are home. Today I have a little card using some beautiful Waltzingmouse stamps: Musical Backgrounds and Very Vintage Labels no. 10. The card’s pretty simple based on the WM’s Mischief Maker sketch.
