Waltzingmouse Blog Party

Please click here for my Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Post

Top o' the morning to you...
Back again because it's time for...
I'm going to keep this short and sweet...
I know there is so much goodness to be seen today that I don't want to keep you long...

I used one of the fabulous digi images that Claire has available in the store here...
I told you Claire's got your back...
and there's that beautiful sentiment from Irish Blessings again...
when you have a good thing...
go with it!
I used my new Spellbinders Labels 25 that just arrived yesterday...
isn't that shape gorgeous?
I'm giddy that Claire used this with so many of the new release sets...
I can see them getting quite the workout already!

Now...if you don't have your project ready yet...
no worries!
The Party will last 24 hours...
so there's still plenty of time to get inky and link up...
you can get all the info here!
If you are needing a fabulous Waltzingmouse image to join in...

Before I send you on your way I have to show you a pic of what I just received in the mail today from my dear, sweet and wonderfully talented friend Kim (Cupcakes, Cards and Kim)...

a candy rainbow!!
With chocolate!!!
I told the kids to back off...
it's MINE!!
And here's a quick shot of a real one I shot the other afternoon after a sudden and unexpected hailstorm...

It was literally disappearing as I snapped this!
Hope everyone has a wonderfully festive...
and safe...

  1. Oh, this is just gorgeous Renee! I love your colouring of this shamrock posy, and the beautiful orange gingham and silky ribbon! Happy partying!

  2. Beautiful card - I love the shading in that new Spellbinder die! You're right - can't go wrong with an Irish blessing and shamrocks! A sure sign of spring! And two rainbows!!! The treat from Kim looks so cool and you snapped a real one too - I hope that means something lucky is headed your way!!

  3. Renee this is perfect in every way. Great coloring and layout. Love the heart pin too. I've had this digi for ages, but have never used it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Beautiful card! I love that you used the gingham and it's not green, really makes a stand out card. Beautiful shading on the die too.

  5. Oh WOW, beautiful coloring, Renee! SO love the bouquet with the orange gingham...but you already knew that I would :) The shaded label is amazing, and your embellishing so sweet. Annnnd 3 cheers for Kim and that sweet goodie bag! I need to tuck that one in my memory bank for a school party :)

  6. This is so pretty. I love your sketch for the week. Maybe I'll finally be able to play, since I got a bunch of goodies in the mail this week. Also, can you come over and give me bow tying lessons, please.

  7. I'm so "over the rainbow" excited about this card.
    Amazing detail - love the orange patterned paper and how it makes the orange in your image just pop!
    Such a great card, Renee!

  8. Just I have to have that die too. I love the orange gingham patterned paper you used, just so springy! So happy to hear that both you and your children loved the little treat too.

  9. Here is my Irish Prayer

    There are many good reasons for drinking,
    One has just entered my head.
    If a man doesn't drink when he's living,
    How in the hell can he drink when he's dead?

    xoxoox Beautiful card RENEE!!!

  10. Love the punch of orange on your card with the pretty gingham paper Renee - and what a fun candy rainbow you received, how very clever!

  11. I just love your orange and green color combo! It's so bright and cheery. Your card has those awesome kind of vibes! Yep, it's a pleasure to look at. Happy St. Pat's Day!!!

  12. Look at you all stocked up on candy! YAY! I think what makes this card is your superb coloring and that cute stick pin, Renee. I hope you enjoyed your very Irish day!

  13. Beautiful card Renee! Great job coloring the digi image! The soft coloring around the edges looks fab!

I can't believe how creative your friend is - that package of candy is simple and yet completely perfect, what a fabby idea for this time of the year - thank you for sharing that, I may have to do some packages of my own next year!

  19. Wow, Renee this is FABULOUS!! Love the sweet gingham paper and the beautiful label with those shamrocks (coloured to perfection!) & Irish blessing. Just wonderful - love the shading effect that you added around the edge of the label too.

  20. I love the green and orange!! The orange gingham is just perfect for this sweet bouquet of shamrocks :) And that little heart pin is just the right touch. That St. Patty's day gift from Kim is awesome!! How sweet of her :)
