A Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps! The fun starts in the Play Room in the Waltzingmouse House forum, where you'll find the links to all the blogs participating in today's waltz. There's a chance to win a stamp set of choice by counting up all of the flower watermarks shown on each of the Design Team's and Claire's blog waltz posts and entering the total number in the appropriate thread in the forum. I am one of the Design Team members, so be sure to look closely at the photo of my card!

Edited to add: I'm very proud to have been selected as one of the Fab 5 at 2 Sketches 4 You! Thanks Laura and Kazan!!! You made my day!

The theme for the blog waltz is Mother's Day, which is just around the corner. For my card, I combined three different "must-have" stamp sets: Faux Fun, Roses in Bloom and Very Vintage Labels No. 4. I also used this fantastic sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I don't often make long cards, but enjoy it every time I do. Note to self: make more long cards! (*wink*)

The DP is from the Be Loved collection by My Mind's Eye. Memento Rose Bud ink matches perfectly! A bit of stitching and a couple of Kaisercraft rhinestones and viola!

Thanks so much for waltzing by today. Be sure to join the fun in the Waltzingmouse House forum. It's just a few clicks away and the waltz promises to be dazzling!
