Yeah! It's Waltzingmouse Blog Party Day!

Hi Everyone,
Here with a card for today's lovely Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!  I am so excited to play along!

Blog-Party-Logo 70%25

The theme this month is "Birthdays" and you can find all the info and the linky party: HERE
I hope you are able to find some time to play along! 

Here is my contribution:
 I used a whole bunch of Waltzing Mouse Stamp sets on this card:
1. Vintage Banners
2. Nordic Winter
3. Jar Fillers - Jam Packed
4. Say it Loud
5. Compact Sentiments - inside sentiment - not shown in pictures

 I just love the gingham banner in Vintage Banners!  I added some of the border stamps from Nordic Winter to the top in pink and brown to dress it up.  The "hip hip Hooray" sentiment is from Vintage Banners and is stamped on a label from Jar Fillers-Jam Packed.  The "it's your big day" sentiment is from "Say it Loud". 
The pink doily is from Freckled Fawn (HERE) and I just love it!  The pink cardstock is impressed with one of my favorite designs: the old parchment impression plate from Cheery Lynn Designs.  A rolled rose and leaves die cut from felt, along with a bow made from green hemp twine and some "I am Roses" baby pink rosebuds finish off this card.

Thanks for taking a look at my Birthday card!  I sure enjoyed getting crafty this morning to make it!
I am off to spend some time with my little one in the Seattle Sunshine now....we are getting together with all of his preschool friends for a "back-to-school" party so it should be fun!  I have known all these sweet kids since they were 3 or 4 years old and now they are all 7 and 8!  Time flies so I am trying hard to treasure each moment!  Have a great day and happy blog hopping!  I can't wait to get home tonight and see what everyone has created! Bye for now...

:) Jill
