January Friends of WMS Blog Waltz


Welcome to the Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - it all starts in the playroom of the WMS forum - you can find all the details here. We hope you'll come join us! This month the theme is Love/Valentines!

Even though my card is pretty clean and simple - I did manage to use three WMS stamp sets on it! Text It, Frame It, and Sweet Hearts.

I just love the traditional Valentine colors of red, white and black don't you?! It reminds me of making Valentines when I was little - working on the diningroom table, covered with newspapers, with red, white and black construction paper, white paper doilies, some dime store stickers and that globby paste!! LOL!! I can taste it now!!

I also love making this size card - 5 1/2" x 3" - long and narrow but still fits in a standard A2 envelope!

As usual - there's a contest going on during the waltz - there could be hidden clue(s) on my picture (do you seE them?!)- count them up and enter the total found on all the DT's cards over in the playroom. A random correct guess will win a WMS stamp set!

I'm off to check out everyone's cards!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Text It, Frame It, Sweet Hearts
Paper: White - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress - Fired Brick

Julia,
This is drop-dead gorgeous! I love the way the sentiment runs through the box and off the card - it hints at "more" and is exciting! Awesome work!

So clever to think outside the frame. Here I was always thinking I needed to stay inside it, but the text going over it is awesome...might have to try that.
