Slumber Party with Whimsy!

Good morning everyone! Hope everyone is well and having a good start to the week:) Leo is much better today, bless him, and I got some decent sleep so I'm back in the land of the living, mostly anyways;)

The dt for Quixotic have a fun week planned starting from today, over the course of the week we'll be featuring different Whimsy stamps which you can check out and purchase from Elainehere:) I absolutely love Whimsy stamps, as the images are so unique and have such character, particuarly the animals! But for today I've chosen to use Pajama Time Emma, she's so cute in her snugglies:) I've been coveting her for a while and as luck would have it Elaine sent me her in my dt package:) First thing I thought was that I wanted to do a slumber party (sleepover as us Brits call it) invitation card. So as you can see that's what I've done, and well it just had to be all pink and girly didn't it! Here's a close up of Emma:~

I've made a large circular tag to pop the stamped invitation wording on so this fits in with Paperplay Challenges and over at The Secret Crafters challenge they want to see our cards for girls so this is perfect, the colour combo I've used is bang on with the one at the Our Creative Corner, love pinks and browns and Cupcake Craft Challenges want to see our use of distressing techniques!

Stuff: Whimsy Stamps 'Pajama Time Emma' available here, MME Laundry Line glittered paper stack here (I LOVE every single sheet in this stack-totally gorgeous!), Core'dinations cardstock in brownie, distress ink in worn lipstick, tim holtz distressing tool, su ribbon, su sentiment, Martha Stewart doily lace punch here, circle nesties, mini doily, organza ribbon from stash, copics to colour.

I'll be back tomorrow with any luck and later on in the week I'll have another Whimsy make:) Keep an eye out for the other Quixotic dt's Whimsy creations this week and stop by and show em some love! Thank you for popping by today and for any comments you might leave for me. Huggles xxx

  18. Another gorgeous card, Rowena. Any little girl (and not so little too!!) would love to have this for a sleepover invite. And that round tag is great with the doily as an edging.
