Whimsy Stamps May Blog Hop

If you have arrived from Anneke'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 from 12 noon EST Sunday 1st May and will close on Sunday 8th May 2011 at 12noon EST (or 5pm UK time).  Please leave comments along the way as there will be two Mystery DT Members who 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.

The Grand winner of the hop, chosen from the very last stop, will receive FIVE new digital stamps of their choice from Whimsy, and will also get a chance to use those new digital images as a guest designer for Whimsy for the entire month of December.......why not take part in the Whimsy Monthly challenge, you can read all about it here.

My team buddies over at Whimsy have come up with some cracking samples as you'd expect from them - absolutely stunning!!  Here's my humble creation using this awesome lion design by Chrissy Armstrong titled "Courageous Carl".  I couldn't wait to layer him up though I have to say, now I've done it, I'm not sure I like his layers???????

The papers are from my stash and I've had them ages and no idea who there by - sorry!

Whimsy Stamps also have some limited edition digi stamps to raise much needed funds for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.  This is your last chance to get these images while helping the people of Japan.  For one week only stamps. For one week only Whimsy Stamps has put them on 50% offer until 7th May.  All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund.

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

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
