February WMS Blog Waltz


Good morning, waltzers! Welcome to the February Friends of WMS Blog Waltz.

If you want to waltz along with us and you haven't yet linked up your project, head to this thread in the WMS Forum to link up your creation and view the other participants. There is also a thread for chatting about what you've seen and participating in our little contest! This month's Waltz competition is to guess the subject of one of the stamp sets being released in March (previews start Feb 26th!). The participating DT members each have a one-word clue on their blogs. Once you see all of them, you should be able to guess! A correct guess could win you a stamp set of your choice!

This month our theme was designing with buttons. Really, what isn't there to love about buttons? Here is my card, with buttons standing in for flower blossoms.

The background flower and stem pattern was created using some little accent stamps from Pic-Nic Patterns. The sentiment is from Say It With Style. I enjoyed sorting through my buttons, such a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors!

Have fun waltzing! Don't forget to head back to the WMS Forum to chat and join the contest.

So glad you could stop by today - don't forget the clue!!
