Sweet, Sweet Remedies...Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!



I am super excited to be participating in
my very first
'Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz'.

I am a huge fan of Claire's stamps
and having received my first set, I could
NOT
wait to play, I mean...
waltz along.
 The theme for July was to use
'colors of summer'
shades of blue & green'
(obviously I added just a hint of pink as well)


'Rescue Remedies' is one of the newest
releases from The Waltzingmouse line.
It is a collection of 'vintage-style' labels
that are so unbelievably versatile.
When I think of 'sweet confections' I think of  

drippy...
     sweet...
            gooey...
                      goodness

which is what led me to pull out my
Martha 'Drippy Goo' border punch.



I managed some pretty good 'Boo' on
this card as well, which I haven't done in
quite awhile (shame on me...and if you don't
know what I am talking about, make sure
you click 'Boo' to find out more)
I used DP from Graphic45's
'Baby to Bride' and BasicGrey's
'Eskimo Kisses'

There are so many wonderful creations out
there being shared today by the
'Friends of Waltzingmouse'
so make sure you go over to the
Waltzingmouse blog and find out more!
