It's Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz time!!!


Good morning and welcome to the Friends of Waltzingmouse blog waltz. This month the theme is .. St. Patrick's Day/Irish, as it's St. Patrick's Day today, lol.

If you want to waltz along with us and you haven't yet linked up your project, head to the link list thread in the WMS Forum to link up your creation. There is also a thread for chatting about what you've seen along the way.

This month a random commenter will be chosen from the Waltz chat to receive a prize.

The very talented Ms. Mouse (Claire) has designed a free digi image, which is compatible with Spellbinders Labels Five dies, for anyone who wished to use it and I fell in love with it so I used it twice....


... and I made  a cute card/candy gift set.

For both the card and the candy jar I used the free digi image, which I coloured using copic markers,  and the Pic-nic patterns background stamp. I filled the jar with jelly snakes.. and for anyone who doesn't get why I used snakes you need to Wiki "St. Patrick" ;) 

For the card I added some green & mustard cardstock.

OMGosh! Never have I enjoyed a blog hop so much. Others you get "into" the hop and the "creativeness" takes a funny slide to "um okay, NEXT!" But EVERY single blog I've visited is incredible. Loving the jar topper and the card is beautiful. I'm thinking I need to make some be-lated St. Patrick's Day cards!

FrancineB said...

Very clever! Great projects. The orange really makes the label pop off the card.
