Waltzingmouse Blog Party!!

It's the 17th of the month and time for....
This month the theme is based on colors... black, orange, and purple!! Now, I love to use black, and it's not uncommon for me to use orange, but, purple is not a "go to" color. So, with this combo and being it is Halloween month and Claire has the best Halloween stamps...

I made a treat bag and card.

The bag is a coffee bag {these are in the WMS store} filled with some color appropriate Hershey's Kisses. The topper ended up not as fancy as my original thoughts, 'cause... I wanted that shrinky dink tag to stand out... yes, that's right a shrinky dink tag... I was like a little kid so excited about that thing!! And, see the bottom of my treat bag.... the Waltzingmouses got in on the act too!!




Close up of the tag with a glitter star, purple tulle, and my shrinky dink tag!! Stamped the sentiment from Hocus Pocus in black stazon onto the shrinky dink material, die cut with an oval nestabilitie, punched a hole for the twine, and heated it up!! See how clear the image is...fun!

Aren't those mouses adorable!! Make me smile!!

The card is a 4.25 x 4. I stitched the outer wisteria wonder paper, added some circle panels, net ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel. The witches pot, sentiment, and fussy cut bats are from WMS Halloween Party.

The treat/coffee bag, shrinky dink material, and stamps are all in the Waltzingmouse Store!!

Thanks for stopping by... Happy Waltzing!!

PS This was one of those photo nightmares... does this every happen to you? I think I took 50 pics, seriously!! Sorry!

That little mouse is too cute!! Well done with the shrinky dink stuff too - may daughter uses it a lot to make jewelery. So fun to watch it as it shrinks in the oven :) Great project! Did the chocolate "props" survive the after party LOL!

Love your projects Vickie! The mouse is way too cute! Some lucky person is just going to love this. Your photo looks great, but I know what you mean. Sometimes I honestly take 100 pictures and it still comes out wrong.

I understand your enthusiasm for your tag and the mice. So much fun when something comes together so well. I love the treat bag. Now I want candy!

Claire said...

These are fabulous Vickie and I love the shrinkydink tag..I keep meaning to buy some of that. I know what you mean about the photos...mine were a nightmare. I probably took longer to do that than the entire project!
