Whimsy August Release Grand Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the ...
Whimsy Stamps August release GRAND BLOG HOP!

Our DT and GDT have been sharing some amazing creations made with these new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

The hop starts today (Wednesday August 6th at 12.00PM noon ET) and ends on Friday August 8th at 12.00pm noon ET. If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at Iris's blog.

 For my card today I have used the adorable new 'A Girl and Her Pumpkin' by Crissy Armstrong.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with Copic markers, and sponged around image with Distress Ink (leaving the Nestie in place to create a border).

The papers are from a Sweet Shoppe Designs digital kit, edged with Distress Ink. I foam mounted the image for extra dimension, and added a bow, some skeleton leaves and flowers for embellishments.

Hope you like it!

Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

One lucky hopper will win a $25 gift certificate!  To enter the draw, simply leave a comment HERE and at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday August 8th.
