Happy 1st Birthday Waltzingmouse & Meri! 93

Mona Pendleton | Monday, May 17, 2010 @ 8:00 AM | ,

Hi Everyone! Today I am waltzing along with Claire, Owner/Designer of Waltzingmouse Stamps, the Waltzingmouse DT & Friends in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz continuing the 1st Birthday celebration of Waltzingmouse Stamps.A Birthday celebration isn't complete without a cake! The Waltzingmouse A Piece of Cake Template is super easy to bake - oops - I mean make! LOL You can make a slice or an entire cake! Not only does this make for a beautiful display but it makes serves as a very useful, unique gift package.My family will be celebrating Meredith's, (my step-daughter), 13th birthday on Wednesday, May 19th :) I met Meredith when she was only 3 yrs old! Time sure does fly! I am putting a little gift in each slice - how fun is that?! :)

If you have a special admiration of Spellbinders™ die templates like I do ;) then you will surely love what Claire calls her "Nestie Friendly" stamps! I have said it before & I will say it again, "a match made in my stamping Heaven! :)"

In this close up photo you can see how fabulously the Spellbinders™ Labels Three die template fits flawlessly around the Waltingmouse embossed image.

I have been getting a lot of miles out of my Spellbinders™ Borderabilities die templates. Didn't know what I was missing! You can cut, emboss & stencil with the Borderabilities™ & they don't jam up, eating your paper, they are super light weight & require very little storage space!

For a close up look at just a slice, you can see how fun this template is to embellish with all your favorite papercrafing goodies! :) Green is Meredith's favorite color, I hope she likes her cake! This cake doesn't get my off the hook! Meri is having a pool party on Saturday with 16 of her friends - so I will be baking cupcakes :)

Thanks so much for waltzing by :) See you on the Waltz!

Yummy! The cake looks so good that I want to eat it! The green tea cake with lots of cream at the Japanese restaurant is my favorite, and yours looks exactly like it! Thanks for all the details, I just bought a cuttlebug last month, I need to look into those die cut at Spellbinders!
Not forgetting, the matching card is as lovely as usual!
