Claire's Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello~ Welcome to Claire's Birthday Blog Hop! Today is the owner and designer of Waltzingmouse Stamps - Claire's birthday. The WMS Design Team and the Mischief Makers are throwing her a virtual birthday party. If you came from Sarah's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from the WMS Blog. Please stop by and wish the sweet Claire a Happy Birthday and give her some love!

Here is my card for Claire:


I pressed wild honey, barn door and tea dye distress inks on my craft sheet, spritzed water over the inks then dragged the piece of watercolor paper through the pool of ink to create the background.


I then built the tree scene using the beautiful and versatile Teeny Trees set. The sentiment is also included in the stamp set. A piece of seam binding dyed with milled lavender distress ink and some pearls finish the card

Happy Birthday, Claire! Hope you have the most wonderful day and hope you get spoiled by your loved ones! =)

It's time to send you to Julee's blog. You can find the master hopping list at the WMS Blog in case any of the links is broken.

Hope you have fun hopping! =)
