February Friends of WMS Blog Waltz 72

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, February 17, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | , , ,

Hi There! Here today for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz. This month, Claire is challenging us all to Design with Buttons.

Once the Waltz begins, you have plenty of time to visit all the participating blogs/galleries at your leisure. A separate thread will be set up for chat and a special game for a chance to win a stamp set of choice. And, of course, we will draw a name from all those who participate in the waltz to win a stamp set of choice! The competition doesn't end until 11:59 pm Eastern on February 19th, so you have plenty of time! We are playing the "Guess the theme of TWO of the new stamp sets being released March 1st game". All the details are in the Waltzingmouse Forum (Playroom:Blog Waltzes), where you'll also find all the links for the waltz.

With Spring right around the corner, I thought I would create a few cards featuring Waltzingmouse Easter Eggs. Here in Phoenix, a sure sign of Spring are the beautiful blooms on the cacti especially the SAGUARO ;)
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the Get Sketchy Card Challenge #74:
 I inked up several different Easter egg images from Nestie Eggs, layered with chipboard and glammed them up with some yummy glitter and buttons.
Next up, is a card featuring a speckled egg image from Nestie Eggs. This stamp set is jam packed with so many Easter eggs in a variety of sizes and designs and sentiments.
One can't go wrong with Easter eggs and buttons can they?
Thanks so much for looking! I'm off to Waltz along taking in all the button inspiration along the way! Be Sweet :)
