Whimsy November Blog Hop....



Well the day is here... The Whimsy Stamps November Blog Hop and we're celebrated the release of some wonderful rubber stamps. There are new collections from Ann Vento, Melissa Jenkins and Crissy Armstrong. Crissy has also designed a snowflake die called Winter's Jewel 1 and Ann has 10 new custom designs available in the Store. This is Melissa Jenkins Cozy Little Snowman. I have coloured him using Copics and added stickles everywhere. Now you should have arrived from Beate's blog, Be sure to enter for a chance to win and make sure to leave comments along the way as there are tons of great prize give-a-ways up for grabs. The winners will be announced on November 17th.
Your next stop on the hop is Denise Lynn's
Have fun hopping and have a wonderful day!

I am entering my card at the following challenges... Sunday Sketch & Stamp - sketch, A Spoonful Of Sugar - snow / snowflakes, Caardvarks - holiday cards using die cuts (snowflakes), Crafty Calendar - winter, Paper Sundaes - let it snow, Paper Players - snowmen

I have a second card to share as well this one features Ann Vento's Christmas Tree in Words also available in rubber at Whimsy Stamps. It is simple and elegant and makes quick and easy cards. I embossed mine in gold and added that gorgeous sparkly poinsettia. It's really so much more beautiful in real life!


I am entering this card at....Flourishes - glitter, Wild Orchid - classic christmas, Secret Crafter - red and gold.
