April Blog Party Details–Bloomin’ Springtime

Blog-Party-Logo 70%25

Hello friends.  How can it possibly be April already? In many places around the world, spring is seen in budding trees and little flowers poking their heads toward the sun. Spring is running late in my part of the world, and even as I type this, there are patches of snow on the ground. I'm SO ready for winter weather to end.  I need a little color in my life.

So, color is what we shall have with this month's theme - SPRING FLOWERS. We all have our own special spring flowers that make us happy, and we would love for you to use your imagination and share with us what is blooming in your craft space.  Design a project that highlights flowers using Waltzingmouse Stamps. It can be a card, a 3D project, or even a scrapbook page, using images from Waltzingmouse Stamps. We hope we have "planted the seed" for your floral creativity and you will join the fun.

We will follow the usual schedule for the April party, and below you will find a 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 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 April- 6:30 p.m. 18th April

USA (New York) 1:30 p.m. 17th April- 1:30 p.m. 18th April

Australia (Queensland) - 4:30 a.m. 18th April- 4:30 a.m. 19th April

Canada (Alberta) - 11:30 a.m. 17th April- 11:30 a.m. 18th April

Malaysia - 2:30 a.m. 18th April- 2:30 a.m. 19th April

Norway - 7:30 p.m. 17th April- 7:30 p.m. 18th April

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 and enjoy the colors of spring.

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,  Picasa or even Pinterest are all fine.

You only need to do three things:

1.  You will need to be able to link your project here, using a direct URL

2.  Your project needs to contain something directly related to the theme – color or other inspiration should be noted in your description

3.  You must use Waltzingmouse Stamps images somewhere within your design

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.

So now that you know the date - you know the time - and now you know the theme, what are you waiting for?  See you the 17th!
