March Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews Day #1 73

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 26, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | ,

Hi There! Welcome to Day #1 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps March Previews. Claire will be releasing FIVE new stamp sets on Tuesday, March 1 & for the next 4 days, Claire, the Waltzingmouse DT & myself will be sharing some awesome samples showcasing these amazing stamps!  Today, we are all previewing Way Out West and Back in the Saddle. Living here in Phoenix, AZ aka: The WILD WILD WEST I immediately fell in love with these stamps! I was inspired to create a mini book featuring my step-daughter Meredith who happens to have a passion for both Western and English riding. These stamps were just what I needed to create this mini! Hope I don't bore you with a few pics :)

Page 1: Features the sentiment "WELL HEY THERE Little LADY" from Back in the Saddle:
Page 2: Features the sentiment "HOWDY PARTNER" from Back in the Saddle:
Page 3: Features the sentiment "GIDDYUP" and the pair of boots images from Back in the Saddle and the wood grain patterned paper was stamped using a background from Way Out West:
Page 4: Features the sentiment "Have a ROOTIN' TOOTIN' time" from Back in the Saddle and what looks to me to be a Navajo inspired decorative border from Way Out West:
Page 5: Features the sentiments "HAPPY TRAILS" & "ROUND UP THE POSSE" as well as the cowboy/horse image from Back in the Saddle and the star border from Way Out West:
Page 6: Features a quote from John Wayne aka: THE Duke :) from Back in the Saddle:
Page 7: Features the sentiment "GIDDYUP" from Back in the Saddle and a fun border full of "Western themed" words from Way Out West:
Page 8: Features the sentiment "KITH 'N' KINSFOLK HOEDOWN BRING THE POSSE" from Back in the Saddle:
Page 9: Features the sentiment "YEE  HAW" from Back in the Saddle and the patterned paper immediately behind the photo was stamped using various images from both Way Out West and Back in the Saddle:
That's all I have for today - for some awesome inspiration be sure to see what Claire (Owner), Julia, Lynn, Anya, Bonnie, Jennifer, Belinda, Carly and the newest Waltzingmouse DT Member, Sarah Martina Parker. I am sure you will all love her creations as well as the entire DT's so please be sure to visit all of their blogs and leave them some love.

I hope you come see what I have to share tomorrow for the Waltzingmouse March Previews Day #2.

Thanks so much for visiting! Be Sweet :)

Oh, WOW, Mona -- these new stamps are perfect for my hubby who'd have LOVED Ridin' into the Sunset with the Duke any ole day of the week! If anyone asks him to go see a movie, he replies, "Why? John Wayne's dead, isn't he?" LOL!!! I'm pretty sure these sets will be required before his next birthday.
Amazing that Claire came up with these fabulous Wild West sets from Ireland?!
You have such a lovely way of creating beautiful keepsakes that I know will be treasured!!!
