A Whimsy Christmas

Good Monday Morning All!

Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. We stayed home for most of it and just relaxed. It was nice. I got to read, the kids played, and the hubby did some work around the house. I started the Twilight series, well let's just say not much else got done this weekend, including stamping! I'm addicted! Can't wait to get the next one!

I did make some time today, after my book was finished (hee hee) to stamp. I made a holiday card using my Whimsy Frog image and some holiday designer print paper from SU!. I also tried out my new sewing machine (hubby bought it for me for my birthday, in May) to do some stitching around the edges. I'm still trying to figure it out! I hate to sew, but it was fun on a card! :)

I also took out my heat embossing tools and added iridescent ice EP to the image piece once my stamping and coloring was complete. The accents here are felt snowflakes and brads, wide ribbon, a metal clip, and oval punches with the sentiment.

I do have some Whimsy Stamps news to share today as well! Vicki Parson of Stamped Smiles is going to be the first monthly guest designer for Whimsy. She'll be making projects for the month of December! We are lucky to have her fabulous talent contributing to Whimsy Stamps! Thanks Vicki! I hope you'll go over and visit her, she always has amazingly creative ideas to share!

Whimsy also has a new group on Paper Craft Planet. Membership on PCP is free and fun! I hope to use the Whimsy Stamps group to post announcements, news, challenges, and also have a place for lovers of Whimsy to share their work and creations!

I think that's about it, at least for now! Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping! :)

I love the Christmas froggie!!! All the layers you've used are just beautiful!

I read the 1st Twilight book about a month ago and couldn't put it down. I'm wanting to read the others so badly, but I told myself I can't...til after the holidays. (otherwise I won't get everything done!)
