Wee Rubber Stamp Cutie

Hi everyone!

Today is the final showcase day for the December Whimsy Stamps Rubber Stamp and Die Release hop. I hope you enjoyed hopping along with the Whimsy Team over the last few days and left comments too for a chance to win one of the daily prizes. Don't forget to check the Whimsy Inspirations blog to see if you were one of the lucky winners!

For my card today I used the super adorable Wee Stamp for Whimsy Rubber Stamp
"Fluffy on the Lilly".

I just love this cutie, definitely one to fall in love with!! I have also used one of Whimsy's new Sentiment Set
"Stylized Notables 1".

Fluffy has been colored using Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and baby oil for blending. I am feeling a little challenged these days choosing and mixing designer papers and somehow I am just liking the simpler cards at the moment, so that is what I made again. And I went with just one designer paper. I believe it's by Bo Bunny.

The sketch was inspired by last week's Sketch Saturday, but I left off a layer so I won't be entering it there. The sentiment was done using the new Whimsy Stamps "Stylized Notables 1". It was cut out using Whimsy's Shapeology die "Notables 1". I love how versatile this Notables Set is, I can use any of my smaller sentiments to add to it. In this case I used the stamp Hello from a set by Crafter's Companion.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
