Whimsy Stamps Digi Sale and other happenings...

Hi there everybloggy,
I am pretty excited to share with you a little inside scoop from
Whimsy Stamps!!
This week, ALL DIGITAL STAMPS ARE 50 % OFF!!!!
Hot dog!! 50% off, half price, 2 for 1, no matter the approach,
the end result is the same!!
Whimsy digi's are on sale!!

Phew, now that I got that out of my system,
I have a little Whimsy project to share today.
As my faithful blogging buddies know,
I need to get my Christmas crafting done before December,
so these fabulous digi's by the amazing Crissy Armstrong have been calling me name since they were released!! What I did was open the files up in Live Quartz, which is a free photo editing software system that is Mac compatible, and took the png files and gave Classic Santa a Little Helper, aptly named Santa's Puppy.

Colouring is done in distress inks. The papers are a mix of K & Co (dots), Echo Park (snowflakes) and an embossed panel. I've used a sentiment by Ann Vento. This is from the Warm Winter Wishes digital sentiment set, it comes with 4 beautiful phrases, and right now, you can get 'em for a buck, holy wow!!!

In other Whimsy news, there will be a most fabulous new release party to celebrate some new rubber stamps, new designer papers and other goodies exclusively designed for Whimsy Stamps, with a blog hop beginning this Wednesday, which is sure to be a blast, as Denise has lined up some special guest designers in addition to their already dynamic rubber stamp design team, so be sure to pop in and check it out, lots of ooooohs and awwwwws to be had, I am certain ;)

Welp, I better scram, a busy day ahead for me tomorrow!!
Big fat cyber hugs to all!!

Now that is a jolly Santa! And love his puppy, or is the puppy a gift from Santa!!
Love the simplicity of your card, makes Santa really stand out. The touch of red in the gingham is wonderful. You've got the touch, girlfriend!
