Waltzingmouse May Blog Waltz

I was very excited to receive my new stamps in time for the blog waltz this month. In honor of the first birthday of Waltzingmouse Stamps, the theme this month is Happy Birthday!

I went to work immediately and created 2 cards, one with a feminine touch and one that would make a good masculine card.

First up is the girlie one. I used stamps from Pic-Nic Patterns, Off Beat Backgrounds, and Fancy Phrases for this. The plaid is made from Summer Sunrise and Hibiscus Burst and I also used Dark Chocolate (PTI) and Shabby Shutters (distress ink).

I went for a clean and simple approach with my next card. I used stamps from Fancy Phrases and Off Beat Backgrounds. The colors used were Dark Chocolate and Ripe Avocado.

I hope you're enjoying the blog waltz. Thanks for stopping by.

Is it the 17th yet?

So I got received my new stamps from Waltzingmouse and created a few cards for the Blog Waltz, now I just have to wait so I can post them!

I hope to have more time this weekend to do some creating, so maybe I'll have something to post before Monday. Until then here's a pic of my little Bonnie taking a cat nap.

More changes

I'm still playing around with some new looks. One of these days I'll figure out how to get it exactly how I want it to look. :-)

New Look

I've been playing around with some new background templates and I think I'll give this one a try considering how much I love the beach. The photo at the top of the birds/coastline was taken on the first night of our honeymoon. We went for a walk just as the sun was setting and it was so peaceful, just the two of us and the birds. I can almost smell the ocean now just thinking about it.
