Come take a spin on the Merry go Round......BLOG HOP

Welcome to the next stop on the Merry go Round!!!  You should be riding in from LISA'S BLOG, if not head on back to the beginning at BEV'S BLOG.
I decided to use the new carousel horse, spring stepping designed by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy.  I could use some spring!!!!!I chose to use lots of soft spring pastels, flowers, gems and sparkle.  The papers are basic grey and the card stock colors are pink pirouette and cream.  The sentiment is whimsy as well and comes with this lovely horse.
Like all Whimsy hops, there's a fabulous prize at the end.  This time Denise is giving away.....Proud Momma Stamp Set, Spring Stepping Stamp Set, Wings of Hope Stamp Set, two pieces of satin ribbon, a package of ICE sticky gems, and 10 two-tone pink Prima roses. So leave comments all along the ride and don't forget to enter at the last stop.
Finally, Whimsy Stamps are offering a special promotion from noon EST today (Sunday) until noon EST tomorrow (Monday). The first 25 orders placed at Whimsy, regardless of total, will receive FREE shipping. Shipping will be charged at checkout, but if your order was one of the first 25 orders in that 24 hour period, you will receive a shipping credit. This is a one day only special promotion during our new release!
Next you'll be heading round to NIKKI'S BLOG...enjoy the ride!!!!
