Waltzingmouse Stamps 1st Anniversary

(This is going to be a short post since I'm supposed to be working right now.)

Waltzingmouse Stamps is celebrating it's 1st Anniversary in a big way. Claire has a sketch challenge on her blog and the winner gets all 8 of the new release stamp sets! If you haven't yet, be sure to check out Waltzingmouse Stamps and Claire's blog (links on sidebar).

I apologize for the photo quality (or lack of), but I had to borrow a camera from work and I'm not used to all of the bells and whistles. LOL

I decided to make a Christmas card for this challenge because Christmas will always be the first thing I think of when I think of Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps. She has grown in many different directions since, but Christmas is how I was first introduced to her beautiful creations.

All stamps used were from Very Vintage Christmas. I tried to keep with a vintage sort of theme by not inking the background stamps evenly for a distressed look. The snowflake at the top has Stickles (icicle) on it so in person it really shines.

I hope you enjoyed my card and more importantly I hope that this is just the first of many anniversaries for Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps!

Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz

It's that time again! Time for another Blog Waltz over at the WaltzingMouse Stamps forum.

I got sidetracked with an organizational project and ran out of time to make a card for this one, but you can still join in the fun by visiting all of the blogs and seeing what everyone has been up to. There is also a contest where the design team members have hidden an image in their posts. Count the number of times you see that image and post it in the forum for a chance to win a new stamp set from WMS.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend and hope to see you waltzing. :-)
