Claire's Birthday Waltzingmouse Blog Hop!

I am so thrilled to welcome you to the first Blog Hop of the Waltzingmouse Design Team!
The team is excited to be doing this first hop in honor of our Claire - who's birthday is today!! whoo hoo! Happy Birthday Claire! Are you super surprised?!?!?!

Our hop is starting with Anya - so if you just happened here because you love me (!) - please hop over to Anya first and come back to me in the proper order!!

If you arrived here from Jennifer - you are in the right place!
In honor of Claire's birthday - we are all making birthday cards using Waltzingmouse Stamps!
I just love this Earth Angel set - the angel has several sets of wings you can use and a multitude of sentiments for many different occasions. A very versatile set! The smocking at the top of her jumper is a separate stamp - how fun! I paper pieced her jumper and masked her body to stamp her wings.

Here's a pic of the inside of my card. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment (of course!), an outline heart and a cute little solid heart! I also used two strips of the same designer paper I paper pieced her jumper with.
Now - hop on over to see what wonderful creation Laurie has to share with us!

Here's the complete DT list in the order of the hop.
