Introducing "Miss Innocent" and an old friend.

Hiya everyone.  (Scroll down if you're here for the Whimsy Blog Hop)

I've been busy crafting whilst packing to go camping tomorrow - there's a pretty good chance Pete'll open his case looking for his toiletry bag and find my pencil case full of copics and promarkers instead lol. 


We have some new stamps being released today at Whimsy and there are some right crackers!!  They are being released today and we're having a blog hop to celebrate  - whoo hoo.  If you want to join in then you need to start HERE.

I was had massive difficulty in choosing just one for the hop so did three rofl but could only use one in the end - these two will be entered into the following challenges

"Miss Innocent"

Created by the very talented artist that is Chrissy Armstrong, isn't she GORGEOUS!

Sweet Stampin - Sketch
Fussy and Fancy - Pink and Black
Daring Cardmakers - It's a Girl Thing
Simon Says - Going Dotty

StampInsanity - Pink and Black

Also, the lovely Denise over at Whimsy is planning to release some of the older rubber stamps into digital format - HAPPY DAYS.  They have some gorgeous stamps of which I have some and now - I can't wait til they are digis lol.

This next image is one of my favourite original stamped images by Katie which is now available as Katie's Digital Critters.

I cannot tell you how long I have wanted this image and just never got round to it until now!!
