A Spin on the Merry Go Round - A Whimsy Blog Hop!

Hey everybody and welcome to my 2nd post of the day! Double posting is a bit of a rare occurance for me but it's with very good reason - I'm the 10th stop on the Whimsy Merry Go Round blog hop! If you have spun here from our wonderful illustrator CRISSY'S blog, then keep reading. If not, you are going to want to bounce right back to the fabulous BEV'S blog, right at the start of the hop.
Today, we are each going to show you the latest of Crissy's amazing illustrations in Whimsy's beautiful carousel horse collection. I decided to get Spring Stepping inky first......

Isn't she gorgeous?! I figured that she is so colourful, she just had to be a girl! That's one of the things I love most about these images actually - you can really let loose and colour them just how you want. So much fun. The other great thing about these stamps is that each one comes with an accessory stamp and a couple of sentiments. What a total bargain, huh?!
