Waltzingmouse All Time Favorite Blog Waltz


I'm so glad you've stopped by, today the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team is having a very special blog waltz to celebrate the merge of the Mischief Makers with the Design Team. We're now one (very) big, happy family and we thought we'd celebrate by sharing lots and lots of inspiration.

If you're waltzing along with us, you should have arrived here from Clare's blog. Sarah will be your next stop along the way.  

We were asked to use our all-time favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps set for this waltz. Well, asking me to pick one favorite WMS set would be like asking me to pick one favorite flavor of ice cream. Or nail polish color. I just can't do it. I love so many, it really depends on the day!

I finally decided that I wanted to use the French Country set - today, its my favorite :)

I built this card around the patterned paper. I thought it looked a little Frenchy and a little Country, so I used it as my starting point. :) Metallics are really hot right now, so I added some gold embossing to the design. Good stuff - adds instant elegance.

There is a ginormous list of gals participating in today's waltz, so I won't keep you any longer. The list of players are below - everyone in red is a new DT member, so it would be fab if you could stop by, say hello and wish them well. We are gearing up for a new release next week, so be sure to add it to your calendar and stop back.

Anya Schrier - you are here!

Sarah is your next stop - she has put together something stunning, so don't miss it! Thank you for the visit, have a great day!
