You Mean Everything To Me

This is my second post for today. For my post for The Pink Elephant, please scroll down or click here.

Yay!!! It's finally time for the new releases at Waltzingmouse Stamps! Claire's designs just get better and better. If you've been following the previews for the past few days, you know there are three stamp sets being released today: Roses in Bloom, Vintage Labels 3, and Nestie Eggs. Not only that, but three sets of gorgeous digi papers are also making their debut.

We're having a blog hop to celebrate, and there are prizes to be won! The blog hop begins at the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog, so if you haven't already started there, I encourage you to click over to see all of the gorgeous creations Claire has made with the new sets, and then follow along from there. The Design Team has pulled out all the stops to give you a memorable journey! Plus, someone's name will be drawn from comments left on one of the Design Team blogs (it's a secret which one) AND from the comments left on the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog, so there are two chances to win a stamp set of your choice!

We are also excited to launch a new forum for fans of Waltzingmouse Stamps called Waltzingmouse House! Be sure to join us there, too!

My card features Roses In Bloom. To show off some of the new digi papers (I'm using Victoriana), I decided to do a bit of paper piecing and paper toling instead of coloring the images. It gives a very different look, but one that can be quite interesting, especially when the paper is as lovely as this.

Now, your last stop on the hop is with Jak Heath, our very special guest designer this month. We are so excited to have her with us!

Have a wonderful day!
