Whimsy Blog Hop


Welcome to the Whimsy Blog Hop!

Hopefully you will have already been to visit Denise and Vicki but if not pop on over there as we are holding a Whimsy Blog Hop today through 'til wednesday.


This is my creation for the Blog Hop, the theme was to use punches! I made my box using nestabilities for the top and bottom, I used a strip of card for the middle. I used a Fiskars lace edge punch for the decoration on the side, an EK success flower punch and Woodware flower punch for the flowers and my favourite L-Em leaf punch. The Whimsy image I used is 'Pajama Time Emma', she is such a sweetie and you can get her at a special price just now at the Whimsy Online Shop! I used my circle nestabilities to get just a portrait. The papers are Basic Grey 'Porcelain' also available at the Whimsy Online Shop.

You can also now get your hands on the newly released Whimsy Animal Collection 'pig', 'lamb' and 'geese'!
The next Whimsy DT member on the blog hop is Erin, hop on over to check out her creation. She will also tell you the next DT on the list to visit! You should end up back at Denise's blog and have visited everyone to be in with a chance of winning a prize!


The DT call for the Whimsy Challenge blog ends today so make sure you get your entry in asap! The challenge goes live next monday, 13th April!

The 'little sister' sentiment is a Basic Grey Rub-on from the Sugared collection.

All flowers are handmade using punches and the same Basic Grey papers!
*********************

Okay, that is it from me for today. Fingers crossed that it worked as I had to schedule it as we are away for a few days. We should be well on our way home as this posts though, so I will catch up with you all soon!


Now, don't forget to hop over to Erin's blog now to continue on the Whimsy Blog Hop!


Have a great sunday, thanks for dropping by!
