And here is my card with the superbly precious Holly image by Sylvia Zet. Boy oh boy, do I feel like a lucky girl getting to play with such fine designs month after month!! 


She is, of course, painted with my beloved distress ink pads, glitteration done with Star Dust Stickles, shimmering courtesy of Pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Snow was made using a DecoArt Snow Writer and adding Stardust Stickles on top. Lovely sentiment from the newly released Holiday Notables 2 set by the talented Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.


Yummy flowers, right??!?! Oh yes, I have just gotten a delivery from Wild Orchid Crafts the other day and could hardly wait to play with them!! I was ever-so-lucky to win a WOC gift certificate, so many thanks to WOC and Kylie, the hostess of the prize!! Perfect timing, as I was needing some more floral gorgeousness!!


And those little snowflake cut-outs that I've added onto the snowy scene, well, they are the little cut outs from the Ornaments Border Die. An excellent second use for this die, as I have purchased many snowflake punches and dies, MANY, and all seem a little too big and bulky for the images. Not these!!! These are PERFECT!!!


Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop back to the Whimsy blog tomorrow for more new release creations!
