Waltzing Mouse Blog Hop!!

 This is my 2nd post today, please scroll down for my ABC Challenges DT card :)

For those of you who haven't heard about Waltzing Mouse Stamps here is a little snippet..
"My name is Claire Brennan and I design and produce clear photopolymer stamps, oh and make a few samples!! I live and work in Northern Ireland and I'm a huge fan of Christmas!
We release new stamps every month, check out the blog for competitions, prizes and lots of inspiration!!"


Claire also designs and sells the most wonderful nestie compatible stamps. Check them out HERE!! 

On to the blog hop.... Claire generously created some digi images and gave them out FREE for today's hop. All you had to do was make a project using the images and post a link to your card/lo/etc on her brand new forum. It only takes a minute to sign up if you're not already a member. The thread for posting a link to your project is open from 10pm (GMT). You can check your time HERE

My card... I coloured my image using Distress Inks.

I'm also entering into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge who are asking for St. Patrick's Day/Splash of Green projects.

The fun doesn't stop there... there's also a Leprechaun Hunt!!  

(My little homemade leprechaun charm is NOT part of Claire's DT hunt.)

Here's what Claire has to say..
 "We're having a Leprechaun hunt!!! lol

The DT will be playing along with the blog hop and some of the ladies may or may not have hidden a leprechaun, or two, or more, in their blog hop photos!! You'll have to be on your toes; he might be big, he might be small, he will be in several places all at once!

As you go through the hop, be sure to take note of where you see the leprechauns!!! then when you have finished hopping you can post the number of Leprechauns you have spotted in the general blog hop chat thread!

A random winner will be picked from the folks who get the number correct!! lol, The winner will be chosen on Saturday night, my time, to allow folks to have time to take part. The winner will receive a free stamp set of their choice!!"

I already know which set I want if I win :D 

So what are you waiting for.. download the stamps here, whizz up a card, layout, etc and link it up on the forum!!

Wow, Sandie you're quick off the mark tonight! Lovely take on Claire's stamp, hope you had time to enjoy the parade today... I did!

My little doggie ran away from home because I said she couldn't march with us in the parade. So she did it with the OSPCA instead with a shamrock bandana and a foster parent!:)
