April SOAP - Day 4 - Happy Birthday Balloons

Today is the April Waltzingmouse SOAP Day 4! In case you missed my post from the other two days, you may remember that ClaireOwner/Designer of Waltzingmouse Stamps announced that she will be releasing new sets every other month which we will be referring to as SOAP, otherwise known as Stamps Of Approval Parade. For the last day of the SOAP event, we are re-visiting an old friend - Spring Baskets. We also have some new team members to introduce so be sure to give them a friendly welcome! :)


For my card today, I opted to use the egg image to create balloons. The shape is so simple and makes for a grand birthday card as well as Easter cards. ;-)

I think I've mentioned before my family isn't into Easter. I remember dying eggs as a kid once and then my mom promptly left those eggs on top of the car on our way to church. Yeah... That might explain why you see no Easter cards, layouts from me. :)

Be sure to check out the wonderful DT's blog and the new ladies as well! ;-)

We hope that you have enjoyed, and have been inspired, the past few days from our Stamp of Approval Parade; highlighting last month’s sets and our beloved Spring Baskets set. Now it’s time for you to get your craftiness on as we invite you to participate in a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) competition.

Find a card or project from any of the projects posted over the past few days by the WMS Design Team, CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog. At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs.

We hope you will enjoy this competition and that it will inspire you be creative. You have one week to complete and link your project as the competition will close at 8:00 AM Claire’s time on April 10th, which is 3 AM Eastern, 2 AM Central and Midnight, Pacific time. The winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on April 11th.

Great idea... I think that freaky Easter Rabbit at the malls is just that, freaky. What is up with the big fake plastic head? There have been no pictures of my boys with that big rabbit head!
