Whimsy Christmas Hop

Welcome to the ... Whimsy Stamps October release BLOG HOP!</ b>

The Whimsy Stamps DT and GDT have been sharing some amazing creations made with the new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP! The hop starts today (Wednesday October 8th at 12.00PM noon ET) and ends on Friday October 10th at 12.00pm noon ET. If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at Iris’ blog.

For today's project, I have made another ornament, I am loving making these so much and have so many ideas for more.   I have used the SCD Christmas Moments sentiment set for the sentiments on the front and back of the ornament.  I thought the Peace Love Joy sentiment was just perfect for the design.


And a peek at the back


And another look at the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used gold glitter glue on the flowers for a change.  I used a magnolia (my favourite flower at the moment), lilies, cosmos daisy, open roses, spiral stamens, and finished off with some rhinestones and tiny little pine cones that I picked up whilst out walking the dogs. 


And now for the fun stuff!

One lucky hopper will win a $25 gift certificate! To enter the draw, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday October 10th. Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:
