Do Join Us for a Tea Party!



Woo hoo, today is the day that Waltzingmouse Stamps releases 8 new stamp sets in celebration of its first birthday!!! What's a birthday celebration without a special Blog Waltz and prizes to be won? If you haven't already, you should start the Waltz at the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog.

My card features Afternoon Tea, one of two sets that are all about a favorite subject... the fabulous tea!!! Together with its companion stamp set, Afternoon Tea Sentiments, the possibilities for cards for many different occasions are endless!!!

And you have to pick up the template for this adorable cake slice (did you see Claire's earlier post showcasing this amazing template AND a template for a tea cup??? Claire's a genius!!!). Again, let your imagination and creativity run wild!!! Who wouldn't want to receive a gift inside a gorgeous cake box with a matching card???

There is so much to take in today... I hope you'll hop over to the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog to see the full reveal of all the new stamp sets and two new templates and read all about the free shipping offer available this weekend only!!! Plus, you'll want to Waltz with us and leave comments on the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog and the Design Team blogs for a chance to win a stamp set of choice!

Now, on you go to visit Bonnie and see what she has created in celebration of this wonderful day!
