Mahalo! Welcome to Our Blog Waltz!

It's new release time at Waltzingmouse Stamps!!! And we aren't foolin'! There are two sets being released today... Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments... which will make cards for the boys/men in your life SO easy to create... and a new template The Rubber Band Box (also in SVG format)!

If you haven't yet seen the wonderful samples made by Claire and the rest of the design team, I encourage you to jump over to the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog to take a peek at the preview posts over the past three days, which include links to the Design Team blogs featuring the new stamp set on each of the preview days. You will be glad you did!

We're having a Blog Waltz today to celebrate the new releases. If you haven't already, please start at the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog and continue on from there. Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs in the waltz because a winner will be chosen from all comments left on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz post AND from the comments left on one of the Design Team's blog waltz posts (it's a secret which one!). Those two lucky waltzers will win a stamp set of their choice!!! You have until Sunday night at 11:59 pm EASTERN to make the rounds, with the winners announced on Monday.

My card demonstrates that not only are the Free Spirit stamp sets great for making boy/male cards, but there are many images and sentiments that also work well for the girls/women in your life!  Sweet and simple, Mahalo says it all!

The next stop on the waltz is Belinda's blog. Enjoy!!!
