 From today until 29 January, the Whimsy DT and our Special January Guest, Gail Lass, will be showcasing these new products with a daily mini blog hop.

At the end of release week (Wednesday 30 January) a 'Release Round-Up' will be posted on the Whimsy blog together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.

  *******************************


This image was so much fun to color and use! It's "Bart on St. Paddy's Day" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I don't really send out  St. Patrick's day cards, but I just couldn't help but LOVE this stamp, and I thought he would be just perfect for a masculine but fun birthday card



I colored the image with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, as usual, and it's been cut out. I really wanted to add some liquid appique to the foam on the beer mug, but just  cannot find it anywhere. It's one of those things that are only used rarely and when I reorganized my stash a few months ago, I probably put it somewhere and don't remember where. Might buy a new bottle before I mail the card out to my brother in law.

Don't know why the button appears so dark in the photo, it really is only a bit darker than my mellow moss card stock that I used for the grass.

Both sentiments are from Whimsy Stamps too, the top one is from the newest release "Simple Everyday Greetings". A really versatile set that's perfect for all kinds of occasions. The circle sentiment is from the set "Party Mini Letter Seals".

I'd like to enter this to
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge where anything goes this month, at Forever Friends the Challenge theme is Birthdays, and then at Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge the theme is Punch it
