Waltzingmouse Stamps July Blog Waltz

Hello Everyone!

July 17th is Blog Waltz time with Waltzingmouse Stamps!  I have not been able to participate for the last few months, so I am very excited to be back!

This month's theme is Birthday Party!  Since my little nephew is having a birthday in September, I made my card with him in mind:

Driving by saying Happy Birthday
Stamps:  Half Pint Heroes (WMS)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock:  Soft Stone, Stamper's Select White (PTI); all others (my scrapbox :) )
Accessories:  Flocking (on the smoke, Doodlebug), Copic Markers, Cricut

My daughers wanted to play along as well . . .

My daughter Kelli's card:

Happy Birthday
Stamps:  Half Pint Heroes (WMS)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Aqua Mist (PTI)
Cardstock:  Ocean Tides, Kraft, Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Accessories:  Copic Markers

Can you tell we'll be really excited when Claire release Half Pint Heroines???

My younger daughter, Julie, decided to do two challenges at once and made her blog waltz card in the same colors as the Summer Card Camp:

Birthday Wishes
Stamps:  Bountiful Basket Additions (WMS)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Cardstock:  Fine Linen, Vintage Cream (PTI); misc.
Accessories:  Copic Markers
