Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop back here to the Whimsy blog tomorrow for the next mini blog hop list showcasing more amazing new release creations!

And here is my sample featuring the overly-cute Love Trip stamp created by Sylvia Zet, as well as a smashing sentiment from the Always and Forever set by Ann Vento.


I painted in distress inks, big shock, I know. The papers are My Minds Eye, I used parts of a square doily to make the border for my purple polka dot paper, the flowers are from I Am Roses and the punch used is by Martha Stewart. I sanded the edges of my papers and distressed the white paper in Walnut Stain.


and here's a close up of the bugs in their little hot air balloon, which is fascinating to think about because, proportionately, it would only have to be as large as say, a thimble or an itty bitty saucer. Yeah, I think too much.

I'm going to add this to the entries at Sketch Saturday and Bunny Zoe's Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I'll be seeing you soon with some more cute Whimsy goodness!!

Big Hugs, stephanne
