My first Whimsy Stamps sneak peek from the new Christmas release features the fabulous Holiday Tickets that go on sale on Sunday 3rd October. I LOVE ticket sentiment stamps so to have the chance to own and stroke some Christmas Ticket sentiments … well I jumped at the chance lol. There are 6 ticket stamps (one blank so you can use one of the additional 3 sentiments) in the set.
I have used two sentiments from the set – Tis the Season ticket and the Peace on earth (in the Stempelglede grunge circle) is one of the additional text stamps.
I have also used one of my neglected Hanglar and Stanglar stamps – shame on me!! You will be seeing lots of them as I am loving colouring them (bought a set off Ebay the day before yesterday and another set last night – no hope for me lol).
The cream holly paper is from an Anna Griffin Christmas set that a friend bought from QVC then kindly gave to me (she prefers me making her cards for her *wink*) and the gingham is one of my freebie sheets (link in the side bar). The poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little pine cones I picked up in the fields on one of my walks with the dogs.
And on the back is my awesome Custom Rubber Stamp also from Whimsy – LOVE IT!!

Next up is my DT card for Lili of the Valley challenge and also my lst GDT card for Cute Card Thursday. The LOTV challenge is my sketch, the theme on CCT is Tic-Toc – time (and the closest I could get to this is the date – 25th December an/or Christmas “Time” …… it works for me rofl) – thanks so much for having me as a GDT for September Leann x
Also, did you know that Lili of the Valley are now stocking fabulous Super Smooth card for stamping and colouring with Copics and Promarkers?

The sentiment stamp is from Clever Cut, the gorgeous papers are from Bearly Mine Designs (love the rich, traditional colours in this set) and the raffia ribbon is from Hobbycraft. The pine cones are from one of my walks, I sprayed them with some gold spray paint, the berries and rose are from my stash. I applied Diamond Stickles to all the layers – paper, image and sentiment for a little bit of bling.
Phew, that’s all from me today – I have three cards for tomorrow (guess who has been busy!)Thanks for stopping by,
