Whimsy December Showcase... and SWEET STUFF!!!!



Happy Saturday everyone!!! Gosh, do you all feel the excitement of the season??? There are so many things going on these days that I am not really sure that I am in touch....so many new releases....so many changes...and so much holiday spirit galore...that....who am I really and what am I supposed to be doing next!!! I love it!!!! At least it gives me a good excuse to be completely OUT OF IT!!!! hahahhah

Today I have for you another showcase of a darling image from the December Release at Whimsy Stamps. This release is amazing with the 20 new stamps, 3 new dies, and 6 new shape EZ templates. As I told you earlier in the week, there is great excitement over at the Whimsy Inspirations Blog with this new release...each day there are prizes given just for visiting those blogs which are showcasing the new stamps. So I urge you to go over to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog where the special event continues until December 21. Whimsy DT and Special Guests (and I am one) are showcasing the fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hoppette where there is a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24 hours to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog by 12:00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12.00PM EST on 21 December.



For my card today I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for all double matting, the DP is from the MME Stella Rose paper pad, and all background panels are machine stitched. The sweet sweet image is Sam's Special Delivery which was designed by the magnificent Sylvia Zet. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers. I decided I wanted alot of texture in the wagon so I added lots of greenery made with a MS Branch Punch, tiny 4mm Closed Rosebuds, and Gypsophilia. HUGS and KISSES are from the
Love Mini Tickets sentiment set and were cut out with Mini Ticket Die. The horizontal is SU grosgrain dotted ribbon tied into a double flat bow.

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps Store along with all of your Whimsy favourites.



And now for some SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!!


I would love to put a little cute boy like I used on my card into someone's lucky home. So I have an extra Sam's Special Delivery and of course I will add in some surprises to keep him company along the way. Just please leave a comment before tomorrow, December 18 at midnight EST and he could be yours!!!! And I know you will enjoy playing with him just as much as I have!!!


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check back at the Whimsy Inspiration Blog tomorrow for more new release creations and for your next adventure! Also don't forget SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious right here tomorrow for a very cute surprise. I have 2 winners to announce and will do that either later today or early in the morning! Until the next time, I send BIG HUGS!!!!
