WMS April Release Blog Waltz

This is my third post of the day. Please be sure to check out this week's CASE Study Challenge as well as the new Play Date Cafe Challenge!

Hello there!

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps April Release Blog Waltz. Today, the three new Waltzingmouse stamp sets we've been previewing for the past few days will be available for purchase in the Waltzingmouse Stamps store.

You should have arrived here from the incredibly talented and super sweet Sarah Martina's blog. The waltz starts over on Claire's blog, so be sure to head there if you're just popping in.

As usual, Blog Waltz prizes are up for grabs! One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments left on one of the Design Team blogs, so let us know what you think of the new release! You have until 6:59 AM EST on Sunday, April 21st to leave your comments. The winner will be announced on the WMS Blog on the 23rd.

Here is what I have for you today, using a little bit from My Kind of Guy and Man of the Hour.

Such great complimentary sentiments. I loved adding the little monocled guy to the mix. The small houndstooth pattern from Heirloom Patterns was a perfect compliment. I added a strip of washi tape for a pop of color along with a little clothespin and some twine.

So that is all for me today - you still have a little waltzing to do - so I won't keep you any longer. Next stop on the waltz is Chupa, who will no doubt have created something awesome! I have only peeked at the rest of the DT blogs over the past few days and I am SO looking forward to the weekend, curled up on the couch with my laptop checking out what everyone else has made!

Thank you so much for your visits and kind words over the past few days. It means so much to me that you stop by and share your thoughts. Take care!
