Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz!

Welcome to the September Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! The fun starts in The Playroom:Blog Waltzes:September Blog Waltz Links thread in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Forum. If you haven't already registered, it's just a couple of quick questions and a few clicks away!

We also have a game we're playing for a chance to win a stamp set of choice, which is open to everyone! You'll find the chat and deets in The Playroom:BlogWaltzes:September Blog Waltz Chat and Game thread. The competition is open until Sunday night at 11:59 pm Eastern, so you can waltz at your leisure over the weekend.

Our theme this month is Halloween. Claire has designed the most wonderful Halloween stamp sets, Halloween Party, Midnight Feast and Wanda's Pantry. Have you seen them? Waltz along with us today and check out the Waltzingmouse Stamps Gallery for some spookalicious samples!

My card features Winnie the Witch from Halloween Party, set within one of the stamps in Very Vintage Labels No. 10.  The DP and die cut are from The Spider's Web collection by My Minds Eye. I sponged in and around the image with Tim Holtz Wild Honey distress ink to give it a more vintage look.

The weather has been pretty warm here in California. I can't wait until it gets a bit cooler and the days a bit shorter so that I know that fall is really here. For us, that usually doesn't happen until around Halloween. I can't wait!

Thanks so much for waltzing by today! Enjoy the rest of the waltz!
