Waltzingmouse October Release Hop ~ Day 3

Click HERE for today's Verve post.



Welcome to Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Release Hops.  Be sure and start with Claire's blog.  She'll have a list of all the hoppers too.  And don't forget you have an opportunity to win a stamp set of your choice.  All you have to do is leave comments on the blogs participating in the hop.  A random commenter will be picked and announced on Claire's blog Nov. 6.  You have until 6:59 am Eastern Time, Nov. 4th to comment. 

2 sets and a background are being featured today:  Half Pint Heroes Additions, Sheriff, and Cabin Plaid.  I used the Half Pint Heroes for the outside, and the Sheriff badge on the inside.  I thought it would be fun to create a little indoor scene with this charming young man, so I paper pieced him using Cowboy Up! dp by Best Creation Inc.  The window and tree are Cottage Cutz dies, and the string of lights is from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I also used some white Liquid Applique on the evergreen.


For the inside, I stamped the Badge with Onyx Black Versafine, ink distressed it using Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink), and added the sentiment "and he could do anything".  I don't have any young children, grandchildren or young nephews, so this card is going to a young boy in the hospital.  I thought it would be nice for him to receive an encouraging card over Christmas with a Sheriff's badge and toys.  I love how Claire's images work so well for all seasons and situations.

Here's the Hop List so you're sure not to miss a spot.  


Thanks once again for stopping by.  I'm honored that you visit!
Happy Stamping!!
