Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps December Digital Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Sarah's Blog then you are right on track!

Whimsy Stamps are releasing new Digital Designs today from Crissy Armstrong, Lia Stampz, Moon Cookie Gallery, StampArt Design by Kathryne and our newest artist LivvyBo Designs! And all of the fabulous new images are available in the Whimsy Store right now! YAY!!

Your first stop on the Hop is always the Whimsy Inspirations Blog. You can find the complete list of participants there. The Grand Prize Winner of the hop will be chosen from comments left on the final stop...the lucky winner will receive 5 new digital stamps of their choice from Whimsy!
 But... make sure you leave some love along the way though, as there will be two bonus winners... these will be chosen from comments on two mystery blogs.
The blog hop runs for 1 week until Thursday, December 8th at 12 Noon EST (5pm GMT).
The lucky winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog.

Here's what I've made for you today...

What a lovely card! That digi is so sweet, a santa and snowmen in one! I Love the rich colors and the bow. I am gonna hop along now. Hugs, Hanneke

Such a jolly wee santa/snowman - I love him

Gram's Treasures said...

That bow matches perfectly to your colours in the image...not always that easy to do. That Nestie frame looks so good with the colours you have chosen for your card.
