Waltzingmouse Stamps May Blog Waltz


Good morning!! It's the 17th of the month and that means only one thing - Waltzingmouse Stamps monthly blog waltz!!! All you need to do is make a card/project with a masculine theme,  and post a link to  it on the forum here.

  Full details of the montly waltzes can be found HERE.

I made a card for my 7yr old son who only a week ago sat on our driveway crying and insisting that he couldn't cycle his bike -  and now he's doing 3 mile bike trips with his dad and he's in the local cycling club!!


The stamps I've used on my card are from the Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments sets. The papers are Basic Grey Origins and they've been stitched onto black card. As it's a boy card and I couldn't add a gazillion flowers to it I just added some twine to embellish, lol. 

Well that's it from me, don't forget to check out what the rest of the Waltzingmouse DT ladies have created. 

Have fun!

I do like the story behind your card - and the card is terrific!! I actually thought you'd stamped and coloured real graph paper (geek in me!!). Love the texture in the string!

Congrats to your little guy on learning to ride!!
