Whimsy Blog Hop Is Here!!!!!




Hello everyone, glorious weather here in the south of England and today is the day we start the WHIMSY BLOG HOP. There is a super candy up for grabs for one lucky person so what you waiting for, get hopping!!!
If you are joining in the hop you should have arrived here from TRUDY"S blog if not then you'll need to go back to the start which is DEB R's blog to make sure you haven't missed anything.
I am so excited to have been chosen to take part in my first BLOG HOP for WHIMSY STAMPS.




We were asked to make a card using our favourite stamps and colours. Well, mine has to be Emma and I really so enjoy using all the colours of the rainbow so have made a summer themed card. Coloured with Copic Markers, I stippled the grass and sky with Chalk Ink Pads. I then used a variety of stamps to create a scene and finished with a Butterfly made with the MS Punch and Flowers and Charm. Can you see the cow in my scene? I thought I'd follow it round so one side is the head and the other is the rear LOL.

Dont forget that WHIMSY STAMPS are on sale and we mustn't forget the recent launch of the gorgeous Animal and Kids collections. they have been a bit hit and it would be a sin if you didn't have at least one piece of rubber in your collection LOL!!!!!

WHIMSY also have a CHALLENGE BLOG with super prizes for the winner, but please dont feel you cant enter the weekly challenge. You DO NOT have to own a WHIMSY STAMP to enter, its open to all. New challenges are every Monday, so why not check out THE WHIMSY CHALLENGE BLOG and see what the latest challenge is this week!

Now its time for you to hop on over to MINDYS blog, who is our Guest Designer. Please make sure that you leave comments on all the blogs to qualify for this fantastic Prize.
Closing date is the 27th June (pm).
Good Luck and Time to HOP ON!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog
& Good Luck
