Tuesday's October Whimsy Stamps Sample

Hi there and welcome to Whimsy's final October release day sample blog hoppity hop day thingymabobber!!

I'm posting this a little on the early side, just to make sure it actually goes live, 
so for up to the minute intel, please refer to the
for a full list of designers samples.

At long last, I have a sample to share using snazzy Whimsy Card Toppers, these ones are illustrated and coloured by Crissy Armstrong. 

The papers are Basic Grey and the little goodies are from my stash!! Perfect solution to that "Oh crap, Christmas is right around the corner and I simply do not have time to make everyone on my card list something!!!" problem we all face!! I feel disappointed in myself when I have to turn to Hallmark, and having such gorgeous precoloured images on hand will make card-making this season go by a little bit smoother!! I love to colour, of course, but I quite literally take HOURS to colour, so this helps out a ton!!!

Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by!!
Prayers to my friends on the east coast!!
hugs, stephanne
