My First Whimsy Card!

Oh, I just cannot believe that those 2 long weeks of holiday that I have been dreaming of for so long are almost up - back to work on Monday for me. I thought I was going to get masses of crafting done whilst I was off but no such luck. We've done a huge amount around the house though and got rid of lots of stuff, so it's not all bad. Just wish I had another week off.....!

Although, I am a very happy bunny still as my Whimsy DT kit arrived! Whoo-hoo! Denise posted it Monday from the US and it arrived in Southampton on Friday! How is that for service?! I was totally blown away by the quality of my new stampies too. For those of you who don't own any Whimsy stamps, each one is pre-mounted on super thick ez-mount stuff, and they each come in their own little resealable bag, with a lovely printed plastic index card. So practical for storage - I love them. Of course, I just HAD to get them inked up right away.....!

Isn't this little fella adorable?! Look at those gorgeous little lips, wish I had a pout like that! ;o)

Goodie List........
Stamps: Frog, Accessory Set 2, Animal Love Sentiments.
Paper: 3 Bugs in a Rug 'Snips & Snails' Stripe & Inch-worm from Dies to Die For.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine, now that it has FINALLY arrived!
