Whimsy Stamps Digital Stamp Release and some exciting news

Hello, I am back with my second card for the day!

Since today is the first of the month (can you believe it's already september??) it's also new release day over at the Whimsy's Stamps Digital Corner. Several new cuties have just been released, from Crissy Armstrong, Kathryne and from Whimsy's newest digital artist Lia Stamps. Lots to choose from, something for everyone!

Of course part of the team is holding a blog hop to show you these new digis. I am not part of the hop but if you'd like to hop along for some fun prizes, simply visit the Whimsy inspirations blog to start and to see more of the newly released digis.

I did make a card with one of the new gorgeous images. I used Crissy Armstrong's "Turk in boots.". What a fun image. I especially had lots of fun popping up several parts of the image.

I have to admit, the whole time I made this card, I kept humming the song "turkey in the straw". LOL. My son used to love the TV show barney when he was little, and one of his favorite movies from that series was the "adventure bus". He watched that so many times and that was one of the songs the kids were singing on that show.

Lucky me I had bought some straw patterned paper a long time ago, and never used it. The image was cut out and layered onto the torn pieces of papers. I hand drew the clouds and cut them out. (Really need go purchase a cloud punch or die!) To finish it off I added some hemp twine and tied the sentiment onto it.

Now onto my exciting news!

Denise of Whimsy Stamps invited me to join the Whimsy Stamps rubber design team!!!


I am so super excited about this, love their variety of stamps, and I am going to have so much fun!! Can't wait for the new release (to be released later this month) to arrive at my house and be part of the fun sneak peeks!!

Ok, and now before I go I'd like to enter my card above to the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by! And be sure to check out what the Whimsy Digital Designers have created by visiting the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations blog.
