WMS Customer Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the first Waltzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop! As a DT member, I am really excited to see all the wonderful creations that you have made! I know how much *I* love WMS, but it is great to see so many of you sharing your support as well!

You should have come here by way of Peggy's blog and the next stop after me is Nancy. If you just happened to stop by here, I am so glad that you did! You can visit the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog to start the hop from the beginning.

Here is my spring-themed creation. Mother's Day is in spring! :) Never too soon to start thinking ahead!

My inspiration started with Jen del Muro's SFYTT from last week. I turned to the very springy Spring Baskets for my card, and pulled out a fun color combination.

The background was stamped with the herringbone pattern stamp from Little Box Labels. I combined two sentiments from Spring Baskets - I love to do this, and Claire's sets work really well for this.

I colored the flowers with Copics, pulling colors from the patterned paper and then I added some burgundy rhinestones to tie into the card base color. Fun stuff!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you are enjoying the Customer blog hop! Your next stop is Nancy. Have a great day, I am going to get hopping!
