Blog Hop and first Whimsy Design Team Post

Hello everyone and thanks so much for stopping by today!

I am so excited to show you today's card. It's my first card as a digital DT member for

Whimsy Stamps

plus we are having our January blog hop to show off the brand new digital images released today!! We have new images and sentiments from Crissy, Meljen's and Ann to show you today, some of them are even precolored!!
I hope you'll hop along to see all the amazing projects the rest of the Design Team came up with.

If you arrived here from Stephanne's blog you are on the right track, if not and you'd like to hop along, you will want to go to Debbie's blog to start. Be sure to leave comments along the way as there will be 6 mystery Design Team members who will each be choosing a winner from the comments left. Every winner will win one digital stamp of their choice.
The Grand Prize winner which will be chosen from the very last stop will win 5 new digital stamps of their choice and will get a chance to use those stamps as a guest designer for whimsy stamps for the month of January!

Now onto my card,


I decided to use the brand new image Tweet Heart Birds by Meljen's Designs. Isn't it adorable? I thought it would be perfect for making little pocket cards for my daughter to take to school on valentine's day.

It's been colored with copic markers and then I added some stickles glitter. My papers are from bo bunny and card stock is from stampin up. On the tag inside I stamped the sentiment "to someone with a very big heart" and I am planning on adding one of those flat packets of sweet tarts to it with a glue dot. I just have to purchase a bag of them first.

Here is a picture with the tag taken out.


These are super easy to make, if you need instructions you can find Beate's tutorial here.

I would like to enter my card to these challenges:

Your next stop on the hop is Domi's blog. Be sure to hop over there to see her fabulous creation!

If you get lost along the way you can always go back to Debbie's blog for the instructions and start over again.

This hop is open from Thursday, January 6th 12noon EST until Thursday January 13th 12noon EST so you have one whole week to hop along!

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

have a great day and happy hopping!

Ellie.
