Waltzingmouse Stamps New Release Blog Hop!!!

Woo hoo!!! I've been eagerly anticipating this day...the February release at Waltzingmouse Stamps and our very first blog hop to celebrate! If you've seen all the sneak peeks since Sunday on the Waltzingmouse Stamps and Design Team blogs, then you are just as excited! Claire has outdone herself again!!!

If you haven't already, you should start the hop at Lynn's blog. Be sure to leave a comment on every blog in the hop because a name will be drawn from one of the Design Team blogs to win Spring Baskets. A second name will be drawn from all the comments left on the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog to win L'il Buddies. You can see both stamp sets in all their glory at Waltzingmouse Stamps.

My card uses two of the images from Spring Baskets. This set is incredibly versatile and about so much more than Easter. It will quickly become one of your favorites!

I followed The Sweet Stop Sketch #41. The DP is from Honey Pie by Cosmo Cricket. And yes, those are some Zva swirls... I can't resist them! I colored two of the eggs with Copics and paper-pieced the third.

I won't keep you any longer... hop on over to Laurie's blog for a special treat. But don't forget to leave a comment first for a chance to win Spring Baskets. The deadline to enter is Sunday, February 7th at 11:59 pm Eastern. The winner will be announced on the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog on Monday.

Happy Hopping!!!
