Hello and welcome to a very special blog hop today!
The illustrators of Whimsy Stamps have come together to draw a special set of digi images for the purpose of raising money for the relief effort in Japan. All proceeds from the sale of these images will be donated to that cause. Kenny K, Raindrop Echo Designs, Meljens Designs, and Crissy Armstrong all contributed art work.
For the whole month of April, you can purchase the images as a set or individually (your choice) by visiting this page
on the Whimsy store site. Please consider helping this special cause by purchasing one or all of the digital images we are offering.
If you have landed here from Debbie's blog
, you are right on track. If you have come here randomly and would like to start hopping from the beginning, please go to Crissy's blog
. She has the blog rotation order posted if you need to refer to it.
The amazing ladies of two design teams have come together to host this blog hop for you! Crissy's Crew
from Sundays With Crissy and Denise's Design Team
from Whimsy Stamps have joined forces to design some amazing creations for you. You have seven days to hop through all the blogs and enjoy all the lovely creations.
The hop runs from now through Sunday April 10 at noon. There will be several opportunities to win blog candy! Four random commenters will get a chance to receive one of the three individual images or Ann's sentiment set. So be sure to leave comments all along the way for your chance at a free digi!
Also, if you post the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's sidebar, you can enter into the draw for the grand prize!
The grand prize will consist of the entire digital set made just for this cause as well as a gift certificate donated by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs worth 10$ to use at the Whimsy Stamps store!
To enter, you must help us advertise for this cause by posting the "Help Japan" button on your blog's side bar (just grab it from my side bar or from the top of this post) and then get your name on the Inlinkz option on Crissy's post so we can be sure to find the winner.
Now on to my project:
I have used Crissy Armstrong's Heartfelt Angel
in my project today. The image has been colored with derwent coloursoft and some copics for the skin tones. Papers are from a new 6x6 paper pack from My Minds Eye. I applied dazzling diamonds glitter to the angel's wings, the trims on her dress and the flowers. All edges were distressed and I used my sewing machine for some stitching. Flowers were punched with a SU punch and layered, then I used sticky pearls for flower centers. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
Would love to enter my card to these challenges:

Next you'll want to visit Jackie's blog

Hope you'll have a wonderful day!!
