Waltzingmouse April PJ Party – Challenge No. 1 – Shower with Gifts

Waltzingmouse April PJ Party – Challenge No. 1 – Shower with Gifts


Today’s whim is to join Waltzingmouse Stamps April PJ Party. It started across the pond at 11:45pm their time, 6:45pm here in the former colonies aka USA.

For Challenge No 1 – Shower with Gifts, I chose to make a gift tag for a baby gift:

I had fun stamping the smallest dolls around the flower twice, then fussy cutting them and shaping them to look like a flower. I think it’s cute that the background paper says ‘stop crying’ (just to the right of the flower)! ; )

Stamps used: Waltzingmouse Stamps: You’re a Doll; Afternoon Tea (part of sentiment)

Hope you enjoyed this cute little tag.

Here’s the link if you’d like to join the fun:

Now, off you pop to see the rest of the hop!
