Waltzingmouse Blog Party

It's the 17th of the month which means it's time to party with that cute little waltzing mouse! And today the little furry fellow is feeling lucky.

If a four-leaf clover is good luck, how lucky is a wreath of four-leaf clovers?
I made the wreath using the Silhouette Cameo. While I cut the clovers from different shades of green cardstock, I cut the bow from white cs and colored it with Copics. The sentiment and pretty frame are from Waltzingmouse Stamps Fancy Phrases, stamped in New Leaf ink and matted on Berry Sorbet cs.

For this second card, I used one of the first Waltzingmouse Stamp sets I purchased and still one of my favorites, Irish Blessings.   I also used the beautiful digital stamp, designed and offered by Claire.Thank you, Claire!

Again using the Cameo, I resized the stamp, used the trace feature, and finally the print and cut feature to get my cut stamp.Then I colored it with Copics. I stamped the sentiment and the clovers from Irish Blessings on a panel of Aqua Mist cs and then impressed it with a linen impression plate. I stitched the halves of  two doilies and then added the sweet bouquet.  

Happy Saint Patrick's Day and the luck of the Irish be with ye!

  13. These are amazing, Cammie! I LOVE how you colored that die cut bow...it looks like a stamped image! What a sweet idea to make a shamrock wreath. The second one really captured my heart...it's so feminine and delicate. Beautiful coloring on the bouquet and love how it's settled on the half doilies. ADORE the tone on tone stamped shamrocks along the border! Wispy and wonderful!

  19. Vegetation Zinnias in full sunlight, good earth with many different compost extra provide them with about a single in . of water every week. Steer clear of wetting foliage, as some are given to powdery mildew and mold. Clip spent blossoms often to help keep every single plant producing blossoms, or lower just higher than the next division promising for stunning reduce blooms.

  20. When looking for employment, and even though on-the-job, continue to keep make-up and perfume to a minimum. Makeup products must use normal shades and spotlight your normal features. Too much cosmetics may be distracting for your qualifications. Cologne odors can stay for a long period in tiny business office areas. That is why, and the fact that a lot of people are sensitive, you need to steer clear of it at work. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Vi7765ity[/url]

  21. If you have unused cooking grease, tend not to put it down your house drain. The fat or gas can clog your deplete and in many cases trigger irreparable injury. Alternatively, place the unused oil or essential oil into a plastic-type case. Or, you can put the grease into an empty tin can, set it inside the family fridge to firm up, then toss it away.
