We have NINE gorgeous new Whimsy Stamps to show you today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - the amazing trio of BevDeb, and Beate!

Here is a full list of the super fabulous new rubber stamps being released today:

I will be giving "I'd Follow You Anywhere" to one lucky participant!  All you have to do to enter the draw is use the Inlinkz option at the bottom of this post!  If you don't have a blog to link to, just let me know in the comments section and I'll make sure you are entered as well.  Here is "I'd Follow You Anywhere":

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Bev's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Bev's blog.

The hop starts today (Wednesday December 8th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday December 15th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 7 different prize draws - WOW! The grand prize of ALL 9 of the new release stamps is being hosted by Simonne at the very end of the hop, but there are also 6 mini candy stops throughout the hop! Of course as you can see, I am one of them, but  I'm not going to tell you where the rest are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them! *wink* 

For my blog hop creation I used Winter's Joy which I illustrated.   Here is your close-up:
I coloured her using water colour techniqes and water based Tombow Pens and Distress Inks.   I made her sparkle with glitter on her boots and Smooch Pearlized Top Coat on her scarf and hat.  The side view shows the sparkle more:
The sweet sentiment is by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs and is found in her Winter Letter Seals set.  
So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Beate's blog where I know she has something amazing to show you!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Here is a place where you can link your blog so you can be entered into the candy draw.


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new releases!
