My Very First Blog Hop!

Blog-hop-logo-sml

Welcome to my first blog hop! It is also WMS first customer blog hop. I will be sleeping when the hop officially starts, but I will join in with comments later this evening.  To those of you who might have hopped in from a different direction and wonder what is going on, the Walzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop starts here, at Claire’s blog. The theme is Spring. So, here we go.

I used Claire’s very first Template Temptation, the Spring Basket Template. I used my Cricut to cut out the SVG file. Worked like a charm!!! The stamps I used are all from WMS: Very Vintage Christmas and Seasons of Love. Paper, ink and buttons are PTI. Unfortunately, for some reason, my pictures seem to be highlighting the mints rather than the basket

Next up on the hop, Ms. Bonnie Sharp. Enjoy!!

I have also included some cards I made with WMS Peace and Plenty, Very Vintage Christmas, and Very Vintage Labels sets. The “Perfect Pear” and “Wishing You Well” sentiments are PTI. Buttons, ribbon, and cardstock are PTI. I used colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits.

Perfect Pear

With Gratitude

Wishing You Well
