Waltzingmouse Stamps April Release Blog Hop

It's time! Time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps release blog hop! These months are flying by, but at least we have great new stamps to look forward to, right?! If you came here from Belinda's blog you are on the right track. But if not, you'll want to go to Claire's blog and start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing. This month Claire has given us great new sets that (you'll see) are as versatile as they are fun:


I mean, come on, when was the last time you made a card that said, "Cowabunga Dude?" Never?! That's what I mean! The Free Spirits - Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments sets just make me want to s-t-r-e-t-c-h my creative skills to see what I can do. This card definitely has a "boys of summer" feel, wouldn't you agree? I used my corrugated paper to create some sand for my surfboards. And I have discovered that I love orange and aqua together!



Well, I'm the last stop on this Blog Hop today. I hope you enjoyed everything you've seen. Remember, go back to Claire's blog to start at the beginning to catch all of the WMS goodness! And don't forget to leave comments on each design team member's blog for a chance to win stamps!

Ink: Orange Zest, Pure Poppy, Water Lily Green, True Black (PTI)
