Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - Birthday Wishes...

Happy Friday, dear friends!

Normally, I'd show you some Christmassy goodies on a Friday, but today is the Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz! I haven't been able to play along for way too long, so I am excited I found time to make something for today's party!


This month, the theme of our Waltz is Birthdays... perfect excuse to add another birthday card to my stash!


I got my new Big Berries: Strawberry set the other day, so I thought this was a pretty good reason to get it inky! Plus, I had the perfect Crate Paper patterned sheet to go with it... it seemed like it was meant to happen, right?


The strawberries are huge - and SO cute. I just cut them out by hand (really easy for this fussy-cutter-hater), and layered them up on foam dots... I thought they accented the strawberry pattern on the Crate Paper goodies perfectly!

I won't keep you, since you have lots of hopping to do! Thanks so much for peeking in on me, and have a great weekend! I'll be enjoying the Ballerina Birthday Party (yep, it's a title now, apparently; Emma said so!), then a trip to the antique carousel that Emma chose to visit for her birthday on Sunday... It's a busy one, but she is so excited, so I am too! I took her birthday portraits today... here's a tease for you:

So cute - both your girl and the card. That card is really stunner tho - with the beautiful trim and delicious paper. I know what you mean about not playing along for a while - it's that nagging feeling that something is missing, including the fact that i don't get to stop by some "oldie but goodie wms friends" glad you're along this one! :)
