Blog Hop and Prize Stop!

Hi everyone and welcome to the Whimsy Prints BLOG HOP! You've landed on a prize stop, so if  you add your name to the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post, you will be entered into a draw to win a Whimsy Prints Holiday Wishes set!   In October, Whimsy Stamps announced the release of a BRAND NEW Whimsy Stamps product line - the Whimsy Prints Collection. The Whimsy Prints Collection are beautiful sets of hand-colored images which have been digitally reproduced and die-cut into various shapes. Whimsy Prints are printed on 100lb premium coated paper and professionally die-cut leaving smooth edges. Each pack contains 12 die-cut prints (3 sets of 4 images). The Crissy Armstrong prints are lovingly hand-colored by Yours Truly ;-)
The Elisabeth Bell prints have been hand-colored by our talented Senior Designer Simonne Clay:
Whimsy Prints Collection are very straight forward and easy to use. They can be attached directly to your project with glue or double sided tape. Use them as is or cut to fit the needs of your project. One of the benefits of using Whimsy Prints is to cut back on the amount of time needed to hand color images. To summarize, it is a great way to make quick projects when time is of the essence! These are also wonderful for beginner crafters and kid projects. If you joined us for our last 2 releases, you may have seen some of the beautiful projects our DT and Special Guests have created using these prints. Today we are showcasing these gorgeous Whimsy Prints with a special BLOG HOP! In addition to our regular Special Guests, we are delighted to welcome both Crissy Armstrong and Elisabeth Bell who are joining us for this hop! The hop starts today (Friday November 30th at 12.00PM EST) and ends on Monday December 3rd at 12.00PM EST. For this hop we have 4 different candy stops where you can enter to win a set of Whimsy Prints. The location of these candy stops is a secret, so if you haven't found them, please go back to the beginning and start hopping! If you would like to hop along with us today and haven’t arrived from the Iris Wiechmann's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Bev's blog.
Here is what I created using one of the Whimsy Prints from the Holiday Wishes collection.  I had originally hand painted the "Christmas Pony" image (which is also available from Whimsy as a rubber stamp image) using water colours.  The DP is from Kaiser Craft Dec 25th 6x6 pad.  Roses are Whimsy Buds.  Ribbon, red twine, rhinestone swirls and flat back pearls from Michael's.  The cinnamon sticks are from my stash from years ago, originally from the spice aisle of the grocery store! The sentiment was a freebie that came with an order at Whimsy Stamps!
I'm entering the following challenges:
 Crazy 4 Challenges: Put A Bow On It
Creative Moments Bloggers Network: Anything Goes/Buttons and Bows
Unique Crafters Challenge: Little Girls
Emergency Crafters: Anything Goes
Raise The Bar: Bundle Up
Pixie Dust Studio: Winter Holiday
