Hello? You there? Hello...(echo, echo, echo) Chances are you are spending lots of time outdoors, enjoying your summer. The longer days and pleasant weather affords lots of possibilities.
Perhaps you are going on vacation.
Maybe spending some time at the park with barbecues and picnics
Or lucky enough to attend a family reunion.
Will you visit the beach?
Or maybe a fun filled day at the amusement park… and generally doing all those things of which we enjoy most during the long summer days.
Whatever fun the summer months may bring your way, it’s almost certain that you will be spending some time outdoors. So it is appropriate that the theme for the July 2012 Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party is THE GREAT OUTDOORS. Use your imagination; show us some ingenuity and create a card, a 3D project, or even a scrapbook page, using images from Waltzingmouse Stamps to share your interpretation of the GREAT OUTDOORS. Maybe your idea of outdoors is a beautiful garden scene, a walk in the woods, a colorful butterfly, or even a day at the beach. Which ever direction your mojo takes you, just go with it.
What? You don’t have any Waltzingmouse Stamps images? Check out the “freebies” section of the store and perhaps you will find your image AND inspiration there.
Below is the schedule of beginning and end times in which you can enter your direct link to your project. Your blog post, or on-line gallery, may go live anytime you wish on the 17th, but you will need to post your direct link here on the WMS blog using the Inlinkz widget that will be available during the time frame (outlined below) .
The festivities begin right here, according to your location, as indicated below:
UK - 6:30 p.m. 17th July- 6:30 p.m. 18th July
USA (New York) 1:30 p.m. 17th July- 1:30 p.m. 18th July

Norway - 7:30 p.m. 17th July- 7:30 p.m. 18th July
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 acceptable, if you don't have a blog, to use an on-line gallery for your project. 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, 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 – color or other inspiration should be noted in the description of your creation.
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 to use it at the top of your post on "party day".
On the 20th of the month – we will highlight a few of the entries that really catch our eye and you'll be able to see those here on the WMS blog. We will also select and announce our winner of the FREE stamp set of choice, using a random generator from those participating in the Blog Party.
You know the date - you know the time - and now you know the theme, what are you waiting for? See you the 17th!
