WMS May Release Blog Waltz

     Today is the day and now is the time for the Waltzingmouse Stamps May release and the Design Team’s Blog Waltz!!
    If you have arrived here from Laurie's blog, then you are right in step. If you just happened to cha-cha onto my blog, you may want to start at Claire’s blog. She has a complete list of the Blog Waltz order, in case you get lost dancing to the tune of your own drum. 
     Leave a comment for a chance to WIN!!! Leaving a comment on today’s DT blog posts will enter you into the drawing for a stamp set of your choice. You have until 11:59 pm Eastern, 10:59 pm Central and 8:59 pm Pacific time on May 2 to comment. You don’t have to, but commenting on each and every blog will increase your chances of winning.

    The first card I am showing you is my favorite of today’s bunch. It has a picnic tablecloth kind of feel to it. The sentiment is from WMS Say it Loud. I used the largest of the three gingham designs from Gingham and Co. for the background. The doilies are all from Dainty Doilies-Large set.

Doilies 7

     Here, I used WMS Dainty Doilies 2-Small for the background, Say it Loud for the sentiment and the line border is from Very Vintage Christmas.

Doilies 5

     This next card was the prototype for yesterday’s cards. I used WMS Dainty Doilies-Large and Say it Loud.
