It's Release Day at Waltzing Mouse Stamps!!

Hi!! Today is release day for Waltzing Mouse Stamps and we are Waltzing!! If you've come here from Bonnie's blog then you are on the right track, if not, you need to shimmy back over to Claire's blog to begin your waltz from the start.

The 4 new sets being released are Vintage Ornaments, Twas the Night Before..., Around Christmastime and Festive Foliage and, as always, these stamp sets are out of this world.  The store will re-open @ 7.15pm GMT once the new items have been added.
  
Today I have used Around Christmastime on my samples. I am just LOVING this set, it's so perfect for gifts and tags as well as cards. Dare I say it's my favourite.... ???


I found these cute bags at the NEC. All of the background stamps and the tags are from the Around Christmastime set. So easy to make and the kids LOVE them filled with yummy Christmas candies.


Don't forget -  there are prizes!! 2 lucky waltzers could each win a stamp set of their choice!! One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments left on one of the DT members blogs, the other will be chosen from the comments left on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog.

Now you need to hop over to the final stop on this waltz - Julia's blog!! I do hope you've had fun.
