Hello and happy May Day; a day to celebrate Spring. I don’t know about you, but every day of spring is a day of celebration…even when rain clouds fill the sky – spring is the epitome of happiness. May also bring another Waltzingmouse Blog Party just for you. The theme for the May Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party is: Felt or Cozy Fabrics. What does that mean? We hope that you will use Waltzingmouse Stamp images to create a project that also contains elements of felt or some other cozy fabric. That could mean a felt or fabric border or hand rolled flowers – die cute elements are great too. Perhaps you might try your hand at piecing fabrics where parts of the images would be – use your imagination and amazing us, just like you always do each month.
Below is the schedule of beginning and end times in which you can enter your direct link to your project. Your post on your blog, or on-line gallery, can go live anytime you wish on the 17th. But during the time frame (outlined below) you will need to post your direct link here on the WMS blog using the Inlinkz widget that will be available.
The festivities begin right here, according to your location, as indicated below:
UK - 6:30 p.m. 17th May - 6:30 p.m. 18th May
USA (New York) 1:30 p.m. 17th Ma y- 1:30 p.m. 18th May
Australia (Queensland) - 4:30 a.m. 18th May - 4:30 a.m. 19th May
Canada (Alberta) - 11:30 a.m. 17th May - 11:30 a.m. 18th May
Malaysia - 2:30 a.m. 18th May - 2:30 a.m. 19th May
Norway - 7:30 p.m. 17th May - 7:30 p.m. 18th May
The linking option will be closed after that time. From there you can just click on any of the projects linked and be directed to any of the participants’ blogs to get a closer look at their creativity.
Although we call this a "blog party", it is perfectly fine to use an on-line gallery for your project, if you don't have a blog. It doesn't even have to be the Waltzingmouse Stamps gallery either (although you are most welcome to upload as many WMS projects as you like there). On-line galleries such as Flickr or Picasa or other galleries are also fine.
You only need to do three things:
1. You will need to be able to link your project here, using a direct link URL
2. Your project needs to contain something directly related to the theme
3. You must use Waltzingmouse Stamps images
We encourage and welcome you to grab this "party mouse" blog button (at the top of this post for your blog sidebar) and use it at the top of your post on "party day".
Then, on the 20th of the month – we will highlight a few of the entries that really catch our attention and you'll be able to see those highlighted here on the WMS blog. We will also select and announce our winner of the FREE stamp set of choice, by a random drawing from those participating in the Blog Party.
So now that you know the date - you know the time - and now you know the theme, what are you waiting for? Grab those Waltzingmouse Stamps and shower the Internet with creative inspiration!
See you on the 17th!
