This past weekend I attended the Whimsy Stamps Weekend Workshop, a fabulous retreat held in Fort Myers,  Florida.  We were kept very busy throughout with amazing classes and a huge amount of make and takes.  
I haven't had time to make anything new since getting back yesterday so
my card that I am sharing this week is one we made in Andrea Shell's class, using this super cute stamp set called Santa's Train.  Andrea's card design was amazing and she gave us clear instructions and the whole movement mechanism works great! 
The only thing I did differently was I coloured it with Prismacolor Pencils and changed up the colours a bit.

Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop!



Welcome to our World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop!  
World Cardmaking Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the art of handmade cards – whether made with construction paper and crayons or with more sophisticated supplies. As we crafters can all agree, a store-bought card, while nice, just can’t replace the personal and thoughtful nature of one made by hand.
As well as cards, I love to alter things. Decorated gift bags are one of my favourite things to do.
Here I used
and the

Today, the Whimsy Design Teams are honoring this craft with two hops – one here and another on Instagram.
For each hop Whimsy is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the store.
To increase your chances of winning, be sure to leave a comment on each stop of the hop. All comments must be left by midnight EST on Saturday, October 12th.

One winner will be randomly-chosen from each hop, and the winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Sunday, October 13th.
For more Halloween fun and prizes, be sure to check out the Whimsy Blog every night this month for the 3rd Annual 31 Nights of Halloween blog celebration!
