Whimsy Blog Hop

Afternoon everyone! Got a lovely start to the week this week with a Whimsy Blog Hopshowcasing the gorgeous new rubbah release!
If you've just come over from Marley's Blog then you're on the right track. If not then start at the beginning at Chris's Blog.

Ok onto the fun! There's going to be an awesome candy prize at the end of the hop so make sure you comment on everyones post to be in with a chance of winning! Ooo and the hop ends Monday July 26th Noon EST so you have lots of time to complete it!

Today I'm showcasing one of Crissy's gorgeous new stamp designs for Whimsy called Maya and Marissa-aren't they adorable! Just such sweeties! I really had fun colouring these girlies in and decided to go all bright and use my unopened Cosmo cricket DeLovely paper pad-I LOVE it! The fun colours go perfectly with this image don't you think? I coloured them in with my copics. The sentiment is from one of Ann's fab new sentiment collections called Fancy Friendship Tags which have just been released today also! If you live in the UK and Europe you can also get your Whimsy Fix from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie:)

The sketch I've followed is from the fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week. Am also entering this card over at: allsorts (summer days theme), Secret Crafter (summer hols)

Well that's it from me, not going to waffle too much today-don't forget to leave a comment before you hop to the next stop! And your next stop is Crissy's Blog. Her work is always jaw droppingly amazing so I can't wait to go and see myself! Have fun and thanks for stopping by today!

P.S. If you'd like to purchase my card it'll be up in My Etsy Shop:)
