Whimsy Advent Event - Day 1!

***** CANDY DRAW NOW CLOSED! *****



Hello and welcome to day one of the Whimsy Stamps Advent Event..... try saying that fast! During the lead up to Christmas, each of the DT will be taking it in turns to post some Whimsy inspiration for you and every day, a little Whimsy treat will be won by 1 lucky person! I am the advent treat giver today and I will be giving away this gorgeous Whimsy reindeer!

Isn't he adorable?! To be in with a shot of winning him, all you need to do is leave your name with Mr Linky below and I will draw a winner tomorrow morning. Simple huh?! Now, on to my card!


I've seen a few cards lately where people have layered up their card using these Cosmo Cricket papers and have created rolling hills. I loved the look that they created and thought those fab hills would be perfect for my Whimsy snowman! Due to my awful photography skills, you can't really see the effect on the photo above but {hopefully} you will be able to see it a bit better on the picture below!


I also managed to beat my fear of the Flower Soft! I got in a heck of a mess creating this snowflake but I really think it was worth it as I love the final look!

Goodie List........
Stamps: N'ice Friends by Whimsy Stamps.
Paper: 'Jolly by Golly' from Cosmo Cricket.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Tools & Embellishments: Polar White Flowersoft, snowflake punchie, button and twine from stash.


OK, so that is it from me! Make sure you check out the Whimsy homepage for more updates and further details about the advent schedule. Also make sure that you leave your name with Mr Linky below to be in with a chance of winning that wonderful Whimsy Reindeer stamp!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope to see you again soon!

I love that card. Sooo fun, what a cute snowman. I recently discovered flower soft myself and have been using it a little. It's a fun way to add a little pop.
