Trust in Him...

Good morning!

I have a Waltzingmouse Stamps project for you today - sort of a quick and easy if you will! - but first some fun business to tend to!

We hope you have all marked your calendars for Thursday, June 17th... the date of our monthly Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! They are always on the 17th of each month so that you can plan ahead.

The fun will begin at 7:00 am Pacific, 8:00 am Mountain, 9:00 am Central, 10:00 am Eastern, 3:00 pm GMT!

Our theme this month is Let's hear it for the boys... masculine cards/projects! All we ask is that you use Waltzingmouse Stamps stamps (and/or templates) for your blog waltz cards/projects.

As always, the festivities will take place in the Play Room in the Waltzingmouse House forum. (If you haven't registered yet for the forum, it's just a few clicks away!) The threads will go live when the waltz begins... one for you to post your blog address if you are participating in the waltz, and another for chat.

And of course there will be prizes!!! A stamp set of choice awarded randomly to one of those who participate in the Blog Waltz, and a stamp set of choice awarded randomly for one who correctly states the number of special watermarks found on the Design Team (and Claire's) cards/projects!

We'd love it if you would post the Blog Waltz badge above on your blogs to help spread the word, linking back to this post. For those who participate in the waltz, please include the Blog Waltz badge at the top of your post so that we can easily find you.
It will be so fun, so please plan to join us - that's the day after tomorrow so let's get those masculine projects started - let's face it - we all need help with those silly men cards lol!

Onto today's project!!

I love the Papertrey Ink's Green Boutique patterned paper - probably because it has that delicious Hawaiian Shores colour in it - I am truly in love with this colour!

Using Hawaiian Shores cardstock and Green Boutique patterned paper, I decorated the bottom half of my card. Then I got out my Zva crystal flourishes and added the green one to the card so that it would look like a tree - use your imagination - lol!!

Using Waltzingmouse Stamps Words of Wisdom I stamped the sentiment in New Leaf Ink.

I got out my seldom used Spellbinders bird die and cut out a small bird. Before I removed it from the die I inked it with PTI's chamomile ink and added a little crystal gem that I had coloured with a copic marker.

I popped it up onto the card and presto! facto! done-o!

Hubby is out flying his remote control planes tonight - it is such a beautiful night I can hear them buzzing around like little dive bombing wasps lol!


  1. Lovely card and the gemstone flourish is a great touch :)

  2. Oh the gemsone flourish is perfect!

  3. Stunning card! The paper is delish and the gems make a lovely tree. The bird is sweet and I love the sentiment.
