My Favorite Waltzingmouse

If you're looking for my 12 Kits post...please scroll down.

Sweep! sweep!
it's been a while since I've been on this little ole blog...
feels like it needed to be dusted off a bit before I got started.
But I can tell you that even though it's been so quiet around here you could hear a pin drop...
I've been very busy behind the scenes...
all of which will be coming to light in just a few days.
Which is also why I'm here today!

Today all of us at Waltzingmouse Stamps have come together for a special Blog Waltz of our Favorite Waltzingmouse so that you can be introduced to the new Design Team!
Now you're going to recognize all of us...
from the Design Team that you know and love and the former Mischief Makers!
And before we get the ball rolling on our upcoming release of new goodies...
we thought it would be fun to do a little waltz using our favorite Waltzingmouse set of past releases and when Lynn first suggested it I jumped at it with this one little thought in mind...
"That'll be easy!"
Do you know how hard it was to pick one favorite set?!!!
I have discovered that just like picking a new book to read...
it's depends on what day of the week it is...
what my mood is...
what moon cycle we're in...
and apparently whether the Dow is up or down...
as to what my favorite set is.
It changed so much I seriously thought about just using a few of my favorite sets all on one card...
but a French Country/ Yonder Star/ Heirloom Patterns/Cicely and/or Gracie at Halloween/ Seasonal Remedies/Say It With Style/My Heart/Asian Gardens card was going to be REALLY hard to pull off...
well beyond my abilities to say the least...
but if you ever decide to tackle that project...
please let me know!
I eeny meeny'ed and choose...
French Country!
I love this set.
Loved it from the very first moment I laid eyes on it and my love has not weakened...
it's still one of those sets I reach for first and have to make myself use something else.
And since we're introducing the DT and you're going to be able to get a look at all of our individual styles...
I decided to keep it simple...
because that's what I usually do...

And since I have decided it's my personal mission in life to make everyone love NAVY as much as I do...
I stamped the background pattern from French Country in SU's Night of Navy...
the rooster and sentiment are stamped in Memento's Love Letter...
adhered them to a Night of Navy base...
some navy satin ribbon that was gifted to me and I have been hoarding...
a dash of red bling...
and viola!
All done.
Easy peasy!

Now everyone is here for this and Claire has assembled the most amazing, most talented, most diverse DT around...
whatever your personal style...
you will find examples of that style right here...
so you don't want to miss any stops along the way and if you came from Edna's blog you're right on track and will be stopping by the uber incredible Jeanne Jachna's blog next.
I am in awe of the talent in this group and am constantly amazed by everyone and their creativity...
and still pinch myself that they let me play with them!
And stay tuned to Claire's blog HERE for details for the upcoming release!

Till next time!
