Waltzingmouse Blog Party

For my Our Daily Bread Designs post, click HERE.
 


I made today's card for this month's Waltzingmouse Blog Party.  The theme is Love/Hearts.  I used red, and the sentiment "You are Wonderful" to convey love.  I hope that's okay.  ;)  I can't believe it's the 17th of January already.  Doesn't it just seem like this year started yesterday?  I know...the older I get, the faster time seems to fly by.  I just have to remember to enjoy each moment as it comes.  One thing I enjoy thoroughly, is working with Waltzingmouse stamps.  I love this beautiful Camellia, and enjoyed coloring it with my Tombows on watercolor paper.



The sparkly leaf panel is actually a Spellbinders die that I adhered to the back of the window opening with dimensional tape.  Thus it's backless.  It's hard to show with a camera, but irl the dimension and sparkle is quite striking.

The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

I do want to mention something you should check out.  Waltzingmouse Stamps has Cath's "Stamp of Approval" over at the Moxie Fab Blog today.  How fun is that?!?!?!  Cath is showcasing some super fun sets that you won't want to miss!!  You just have to leave a comment in order to win super awesome stamps!!

Happy Stamping!
