Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

Welcome to a retrospective edition of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team Blog Waltz!!! There is no new stamp release today, BUT there is always fun to be had at Waltzingmouse Stamps. Claire is adding new products to the store today, so you must waltz over to her blog to find out more about it. Not even the Design Team knows for sure! LOL

The blog waltz starts at Claire's blog, so you'll want to start there and leave comments on every blog along the way for a chance to win a stamp set of choice! One will be chosen from all the comments left on Claire's blog and one from all the comments left on one of the Design Team blogs (to be determined!). The competition ends 11:59 pm Eastern on Thursday, June 3rd, and the winners will be announced on Claire's blog on Friday, June 4th.

Since we celebrated the one-year anniversary of Waltzingmouse Stamps last month, we decided to feature beloved stamp sets from the early releases. My card features one of my favorites, and I think the first set I bought... Earth Angel. Angels are very special to me because my mother loved them so.

A truly simple card, but perfect for the feeling this stamp set provokes. You can also use the wings in this set to make butterflies! And I love the font and variety of greetings. A delightful set for so many reasons!

Your next stop is Bonnie's blog. Enjoy! Before you go, be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a stamp set of choice.


Things are hopping at my blog today! Please scroll down to the next post for my Simply Betty Stamps New Release Blog Hop and a chance to win the entire new release, and to the post after that for my Claudia & Company New Release Blog Hop and yet another chance to win prizes!!! It's a prize winning kind of day!!!

This Angel set is one of my favorites, and SO versatile. My m-in-l loves angels, and is convinced that they have contributed to all her 89 years here on Earth. Her Mother's day card employed this set, to be sure.
Love the strip of eyelet used along the bottom of the card.
Very swwet card.
