Heidi with Sledge

Hello and welcome to day 6 of Whimsy stamps Release blog hop.

On Wednesday (19 September) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies, Whimsy Designer Paper packs and Shape EZ templates. From then until 25 September the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop! Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.  

For my card today I used the super cute stamp "Heidi with Sledge" from the Wee Stamps collection. Isn't she gorgeous!!


She has been colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

The papers I used are from Bo Bunny which I bought sometimes last year.
Embellishments used are seam binding and some twine, a couple of buttons and then I added a snowflake which I cut out using one of Whimsy Stamps "Layered Snowflake dies". The sentiment is from the new set "Holiday circle pennants".

I would love to enter my card to this week's Catered Crop challenge. The theme is "tying a knot". My knot is on the white button by the snowflake. At Christmas Stamping all year long the theme is stitching, so I am entering it there as well.



 To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the participiating Designer's posts by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on 26 September.  You can find the complete list of blog hop stops on the

Thank you so much for visiting!
I hope you enjoy your Monday!

I live in Georgia now but this card reminds of a fresh snow when I lived in Ohio. Love the Christmasy (if that is a word) feel it gives.
