Waltzingmouse Stamps January Blog Waltz


Good morning!! It seems soooo long since we've had our monthly blog waltz even though we only missed one month!! This month the theme is Valentines, we want to see loads of Amoré!! If you haven't added your link to the forum thread and plan to play along you can do so HERE. It only takes a minute.

We will also be playing the watermark game. Each or the DT {may or may not have.. sneaky, eh??!!} added  some watermarks on their blog post today. Count how many watermarks in total you find by visiting each of the design team members' blogs and you could win yourself a very nice prize  - which is a full set of Waltzingmouse stamps of your own choice. Just remember - some watermarks may be well hidden, so look carefully ;) Once you are happy with your count you can post your guess HERE.


I have created a little Valentine gift set.

 The papers on this card were given to me by a friend. They were her scraps from a scrapbooking class she took and she challenged me to make something from them. Well, this is actually the 2nd card I've made from the scraps.. the other card I will share soon. I hope I did her proud, barely a piece was wasted.


 Believe it or not, I made these candies :D I had planned on giving them to hubster but, 3hrs after I made them, they are completely gone!! Not a single one left.. kids!!!! They are so easy to make that I might whip up another batch. 


Supplies
Paper: Cosmo Cricket "Togetherness", PM Craft & white cardstock
Ribbon - American Crafts
Martha Stewart punch
Pearl topped pins from my local drapery
Sewing Machine & white thread
Flat backed self adhesive pearls

Thanks for stopping by!!
