Whimsy blog hop - a spin on the merry-go-round

Whimsy314releasebutton

Today is Whimsy Stamps Blog hop day to celebrate the launch of their new stamps by Crissy Armstrong.

I have used Spring Stepping for my card.  I just love the carousel horses by Crissy – they are amazing.

I have used the MME free paper from a card magazine and have coloured the image with Copics.  The big flower is one of the Marianne Creatables die cut flowers and I have threaded fine organza ribbon through.  The lacy border is a Spellbinders Grand Lace border.  The sweet sentiment is from the stamp set too.

Right, if you’re still with me then here’s the details of the blog hop.  Denise has put up a fab prize to one lucky person. 

I am the first stop on the hop, the next stop is Simonne

The hop will run until Wednesday, March 17th at noon EST. We'll draw one random winner to receive the prize pack and post that info on the Whimsy site.

The prize includes:
Proud Momma Stamp Set, Spring Stepping Stamp Set, Wings of Hope Stamp Set, two pieces are satin ribbon, a package of ICE sticky gems, and 10 two-tone pink Prima rose

blog hop candy 3.14
Also, Whimsy Stamps will be offering a special promotion from noon EST on Sunday until noon EST on Monday. The first 25 orders placed at Whimsy, regardless of total, will receive free shipping. Shipping will be charged at checkout, but if your order was one of the first 25 orders in that 24 hour period, you will receive a shipping credit. This is a one day only special promotion during our new release!
