Whimsy New Release and Blog Hop

If you have arrived from Heike's Blog you are in the right place - if not, please start at the beginning HERE 


Today sees the release of some new fabulous new digi sets from Whimsy Stamps.  You can find them in the store HERE.

Our blog hop will run until 12 noon EST 7th July.  Two Mystery DT Members will  each be choosing a winner from the comments left on their hop posts! These winners will each win a Whimsy digi image of their choice.  There will also be a grand prize of 5 digi images of the winners choice and for even more fun......why not take part in the Whimsy Monthly challenge, you can read all about it here.
 
Below is my creation using "Great Day to Fish"


Now, I know we don't have beaver or moose here in the UK, but I just couldn't resist this image - fella's can be so tricky to make a card for and I could see so many great uses with this, it's soo versatile!  The great thing with digi is that you can resize to what you need, the trees were made larger for this project and are from a previous release called "Fairy Tale Castle".
The sentiment is also a new digi, from another one of whimsy's talented Designers - Ann Vento !

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges......

Double Dutch - "Fold It"
Ooh La La - "Simply Summer"
Digital Tuesday - "Summertime"
La La Land Crafts - "Try Something New" (1st Step Card Attempt)
ABC Challenge - X for Xtra Dimension
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - "The Great Outdoors"

Please now hop along to the wonderfully talented Annika's Blog
REMEMBER - Please leave some love along the way for your chance to win! 

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

Paula said...

I had to laugh - why do tall men choose short wives? Isn't this just so apposite? I like the trees & how the whole composition reminds me of a lake midst woodland. Brilliantly effective.
