Three squeaks for the Birthday Girl!!

Good morning!! Today the Waltzingmouse DT are having a very special BIRTHDAY blog hop, for a very special person - Ms. WaltzingMouse herself -  Claire, owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps is celebrating her birthday today. 

Over the past number of months not only has Claire been a fan.tas.tic 'boss' but she's become a very good friend to me and I am truly blessed to have 'met' her. I know every member of the WMS DT feel exactly the same and that's why we wanted to do something special for her....

So each of the DT, The Mischief makers and some friends have made a birthday card for Claire... and we've used her wonderful WMS stamps too.. ;) 

If you've arrived here from Lisa's blog then you're on the right path.. if not then you need to jump back to Claire's blog {which Lisa hijacked for the occasion, lol}


I've used Very Vintage Labels 10 stamped out using Victorian Velvet distress ink and a sentiment from Tiny Trees stamped with Tuxedo Black Momento along with Magnolia design papers, distressed seam binding and a beautiful 2-tone white/pink rose.


The little tag has been inked and stamped with a tiny bird from the Tiny Trees collection, using the Victorian Velvet and a touch of Brushed Cordoroy. The border has been punched out using Martha Stewarts Vintage Lace punch and then inked to co-ordinate. All of my papers have been machine stitched. 

Well that's it from me.. Your next stop on this hop is Mona, and I'm pretty certain that she will bowl you over with her wondeful creativity.

I hope you will all join us in wishing Claire a very very very happy Birthday!!
