Final sample for Whimsy's April Release, a Wee Snippet at play!!



Good day to you all!!
So you're here on our last day of showcasings of our new release Whimsy Stamps for April!!
Yes, I am afraid that all good things must end...
So I have used the fantastically cute
Wee Snippets Bubbles by the talented Crissy Armstrong!! She's coloured in distress inks, of course, with Star Dust stickles on her wings and 3d Crystal Lacquer to give the bubbles some sheen. I've also used a sentiment from the new Everyday Notables collection by Raindrop Echo Designs, very versatile!!




Within the next hour or so I will get the full card published here, just wanted to make sure there was something to see in the short term, I am feverishly hungry and need to eat before I can finish, yes, always bumbling in at the last minute or later....



So I FINALLY finished up, but not without incident, I decided to slice my left index finger open with an exacto knife, yarg!!! Not easy to place things with a stinkin' wound on that finger!! Anyhoo, my papers are by October Afternoon, the buttons are Basic Grey, the flowers are a mixture of different companies, and I've added in our lovely vine die cut because I just love it to bits!! Staples, laces, some sewing and distressing and we're done!!




Welp, I'm going to enter this in at PaperTake Weekly since I used their sketch and Stampin' for the Weekends Sparkle and Shine challenge



Please take a moment to visit my DT pals and see what loveliness they've created with these fantabulous stamps!!!
