Whimsy Blog Hop plus New Challenge for November!

Hello Blogging Buddies!  Whimsy Stamps is having their digital release party today, with a blog hop for you to participate in and have chances to win free digi's! 
If you have landed here from Sandra's blog, you are right on track. If you have landed here randomly and want to start at the beginning, go to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog.  They also have a complete list of the order of the hop if you need it. 
I have illustrated four new Christmas themed digi's for you this month.   I hope you like them!
The one on my card is Little Christmas Angel.  She is available to purchase through Whimsy right now. There are many more new images being released today from all the Whimsy illustrators, so you might want to go check them out. 
And, the whole month of November is Whimsy's 2nd Anniversary celebration!  There are fantastic specials and
  giveaways all month long!  The first special starts now and runs all week with 25% off all rubber stamps (excluding custom rubber designs).  The following week there will be 50% discount off all digital images, wow!  That's just a couple of the many fun things going on! Check out all the details by clicking on the little blinkie I have on the sidebar. 
Be sure to hop around to all the blogs on this hop and leave a comment on each one, because there will be two winners chosen randomly from the comments on all the blogs!   They will get a free digi of their choice from Whimsy.  And, there will be a grand prize winner, and get this; the grand prize winner will get to choose five digi's of their choice from Whimsy AND, they will be our guest designer for the whole month of November!  How cool is that!
The hop starts today and runs through til Sunday Nov 7 at 12 noon EST.  So you have lots of time to hop from blog to blog and enter to win the blog candy!

Now since it is the first of the month, it is also time for a new challenge at Sundays With Crissy.  And the theme I have chosen for this month is a colour recipe: Red, Green and Gold.
If you are also interested in making a card or project with that colour combo, click here and follow the guidelines for the challenge.  If you use one of my digital images from Whimsy, Squigglefly or Wags 'n Whiskers, you also have a chance to win some blog candy.  Check it out on my challenge blog here

  25. Oh Crissy, you have no idea how much your kind words on my blog mean to me! Especially when I keep looking at your colouring and thinking I would never be able to do your images justice the way you do! I've been staring at your angel for ages, figuring out how you did her wings - such soft and very natural effect!! And your cards are always so rich, luscious and detailed - whoever gets them must surely frame them!

  26. WoW! It's Gorgeous. LOve your colours and ribbon.

  27. Hi Crissy, I don't know where to start!! Firstly, I am rather new to the Whimsy team, but have been a long-time fan of your adorably sweet images, getting to create with your Little Christmas Angel for the hop was a true pleasure, I loved bringing her to life with colours!! Thank you for the kind words on my blog, though I am a little embarrassed because the picture you saw was of very poor quality, lol. Now, onto your jaw-dropping project, nothing short of amazing!! Your colouring is a dream, I love the reflections of light within the image and your embossing and thoughtful details are gorgeous!!
    hugs, stephanne
