Waltzingmouse October Release Blog Hop!!

I hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful projects made with the latest Waltzingmouse Release!    Claire always makes the best Christmas images and sentiments and these were loads of fun to play with.  We're celebrating the stamps hitting the web store today with a blog hop and another opportunity to win some of these goodies for yourself.  If you're hopping along you should have reached me from Laurie Schmidlin's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning you can get all the deets here at Claire's blog!

I made two cards for you today - the first was made using the swirly peppermint accent from Elf Made.  I was tempted to dress up some cupcakes, but thought that some lollipops would be just as nice.  I had a heck of a time finding the wood coffee stirrers.  I'm not a coffee drinker so I didn't realize that most everything is plastic now.  I found these at Hobby Lobby touted as "wood craft sticks".  They were in the aisle with other wood items like clothespins and images to dress up with paint.

This one is my favorite card I made from the release.  I use the assembled Santa image from the "Jolly Old Elf" set, and the cute little tag from "Elf Made.  The tag is made using the new Pretty Panels Two die, and the "Certified Elfmade" tag stamp fits perfectly on it!   I really like that the die is made with a separate little outline that allows you to add a bit of color to your stamped image.  
My latest addiction is tulle.  It's available in shorter rolls now in lots of colors and makes a wonderful poofy bow.   A bit of gold sparkle does wonders for my soul!   
Ready to see more beautiful designs?  Your next stop is Karin Akesdotter!!  I can't wait to see what dreamy confection she has for us today!   

Here's a list of all the ladies with projects for you today!  Enjoy!  Happy Hopping and GOOD LUCK!!!

I really, really like both of these cards Jeanne. Your work always makes me smile too! I must try using that colour combination as it looks so effective. The elf approved ticket is so cute and I've just had to buy all the new stamps already :)
