Wings of Hope

Good Afternoon!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We had some really wild weather here with power outages and lots of wind damage. Luckily, we are all fine and only lost power briefly, but others weren't so lucky. Mother Nature has been quite angry lately! I'm so looking forward to Spring! Anyway, hope you had a nice relaxing and calm weekend.

I have a special card today and some special Whimsy Stamps news to share. Yesterday was the last day of our Wings of Hope/Help for Haiti fund raiser. I'm so proud to say that with your help we raised $1228.92 in sales and donations from the Wings of Hope image! I will be mailing the check to the American Red Cross tomorrow and now just a big huge THANK YOU to those who purchased this image and helped us to raise money for the people of Haiti!

I've printed out and colored this Wings of Hope image with Copics and then highlighted with lots of Stickles. I kept the layout clean to fit the challenge at Saturday Spotlight, plus a simple layout draws the eye right to this beautiful image. And don't worry, if you didn't buy this image as a digi, you will soon be able to purchase it as a rubber stamp set with coordinating accessory and sentiments at Whimsy Stamps! I embellished gently with ribbon and flowers. This is as clean as I can get! LOL!

This card also fits the challenges at:
The Pink Elephant: Add Green
Pile It On!: Lucky, Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring this one!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great evening!

Happy Stamping,
