Whimsy Blog Hop

Where does the time go?  It's October already and I think I've missed September... but the good thing is that with a new month, there's another new digi release and a blog hop at Whimsy stamps and this month is no exception. 
The hop starts today and runs for one week, ending on Saturday, October 08, 2011 at 12:00 noon EST.
To have a chance at winning, you need to leave a comment on each of the design team blogs as you hop because there are two random blogs among the DT posts who each will select a comment and the winner will get to choose a digi of their choice.  The Grand Prize winner of the hop will receive 5 new digital stamps of their choice from Whimsy and will also get a chance to use those new digital images as a guest designer for Whimsy for an entire month.  And it's fun... the team has come up with some fabulous inspiration for you to check out plus you get a look at the new digis for the month which will be available in the store today at 10:00.  You should have arrived here from checking out Heike's creativity and in case you lose your way, simply go back to the Whimsy Inspiration blog for the order.

For my card, I chose Moon Cookie Gallery's (MCG) Sparkly Tree digi and I'm loving those little trees she's created.  They work up quickly and I like the whimsical style.  The papers are from Basic Grey's 6x6 Wassail pad.  I used gold embossing powder for Whimsy's Winter Letter Seals sentiment and the snowflake die is also from Whimsy.  Everything was then outlined with gold Stickles (and I covered the brads with the Stickles as well), plus my hand caught a gob while it was still wet and I ended up with a smudge up by the star that will not come off.

 From here you want to blast on over to see what the fab Pattie has planned for you.
