Whimsy Stamps Showcase Day 5

Happy Friday everyone and thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are safe and warm where ever you are! We got hit pretty hard with a snowstorm here in the midwest yesterday, we had up to 50mph winds or more, the wind has calmed down a little bit, but it's pretty cold now! Thinking of all of you in the  midwest, please stay safe and warm!

 It's Day 5 of Whimsy Stamps Showcase Day and Mini Hop and I'm so excited to be part of it!

On Monday (17 December) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies, Whimsy Designer Paper packs, Shape EZ templates and *new* Whimsy Prints pre-coloured toppers. From then until 23 December the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop!

Here's what I I created, using another one of Crissy Armstrong's beautiful stamps, this one is called 

It's been stamped with memento ink on neenah solar crest card stock, colored using faber castell polychromos pencils, and then cut her and her little birdie friend out.

The papers are from the pack "Lost and Found - Breeze". I used tempting turquoise card stock by stampin Up as my card base.

The sentiment is from the set "Playful Kittens" from Whimsy's Wee Stamps collection. I punched it out using an oval punch.
Simply embellished with some twine and glitter, and then did some sewing around the edges.

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

Don't forget, each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts participating today by 12.00PM EST tomorrow
You can find the complete list of Designers HERE on the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations blog.
 All winners will be announced here on the Whimsy blog on 24 December.
