At the end of release week (Wednesday 28 March) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of new release DT work from the past week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.


*****************

Here is what I made for today's mini hop, using the stamp "Birthday Pile -up" from the Crissy Armstrong Collection.
Photobucket

I used Faber Castell Polychromos for coloring. The tickets are from a previous Whimsy Stamps release, from the sent Celebrations Mini Tickets, and I used the mini ticket die to cut them out.

The paper is from a pack by My Minds Eye. It's a pretty simple card, at least a simple sketch, I added a couple of buttons and some ribbon, and then did some sewing with my janome sew mini.

I am entering my card to the following challenges:
