Whimsy Blog Hop -- Digital Release!



Welcome to Whimsy's Blog Hop for their first ever Digital Release!  I am the first stop on the hop today!  The hop runs all week and ends at noon on Friday April 16th!  So you have lots of time to check out all the Whimsy Design Team blogs and get a chance to win the blog candy as well!  It will include images from the new release of course!  
Whimsy is releasing four images from me, as well as a couple of super cute images from Katie, some really cool sentiments from Ann, and also some images from Whimsy's previous rubber stamp collection, now available in digital format!  Each download contains a zip file with three versions of the image; JPEG, TIFF and PNG.  Images can be flipped, rotated, and resized to fit your crafting needs.  And of course you won't have to wait for Mr. Postman to bring you the images.  Then there's also the savings $$ because digital images cost less than rubber.  Sounds tempting, doesn't it!!
I saw this card by Lisa and I got really inspired to make one similar to it.  It isn't an exact CASE, but pretty close!  I coloured my new digi image, "Gift Horse" with the following Copics:

Saddle: B32, 34, 37, 39 
Saddle blanket, cinch, and gift: R14, 17, 27  
Gift bow, ribbon: Y28 and gold stickles
Ground: C0, 2, 4
Horse's body: E51, 55, 57
Hooves: E55, 57, 59
Mane and tail: E55, 57, 59, 49
E41 on the rope
E95 in his ear

The star was hand cut.  I know it ain't perfect, but it wasn't easy to do either.  Guess I could use a star template on my wish list. :-)

I have entered this card in the following challenges: 
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - birthday card
ABC Challenge - R is for red

NEXT STOP ON THE HOP, the lovely and talented: ANN
Have fun peeps!
Blessings!

P.S. Just started a new challenge blog, if you're interested!  And, I'm looking for a Design Team! Check out this link for details!
