Waltzing Mouse Stamps Waltz!





Here's my Masculine card for the Waltzing Mouse Bolg Waltz. It is also for my colleague "to be" Anders Frank who turns 60 today. Congratulations!!!
Anders, who teaches maths and scince worked at the Ytterby school when I started there 14 years ago - but we've never shared a class together before - but in the fall we'll take on 30 new 7th graders together - something  I'm really looking forward to! - It's always very fun and exciting (and sometimes challenging!) to start with a new class and meet the teenagers you'll be working the closest together with for the coming 3 years!!!!

Have a super nice Waltz, hugs Karin

Fantastic card, Karin! I love how the trees look water colored. And love how you tied the twine, knotting it on the label.

This is great, Karin! I love the little hills and the trees, and the knots fastening the burly twine to the labe are perfectly masculine! Love it!

This is such a cool card, masculine, yet still a great deal of detail. So cool!

Ooooh this card is lovely! The trees look so serene. I love how you inked them with more than one color. And the twine! How cool is that!
