Whimsy Digi Release Day CHALLENGE

What an exciting day today!!!!  First I want to say a big, huge HAPPY  BIRTHDAY to my BIG girl who is 6 years old today!!!!  I can't believe she's 6 already!!!  WOW!!

And today is also a giant Digi release day at WHIMSY STAMPS!!!!! For this and future monthly digi releases, we are holding a blog hop with half the team and a month-long challenge with the other half!!!!  That doubles your chance at winning some brand new Whimsy digis!!!  We have tons of new images from Crissy Armstrong, new designer MelJen, Ann Vento and Whimsy designs!

I am hosting the challenge and decided on a fun May-themed recipe of markers, papers, flowers and a Whimsy image.  The challenges runs until May 31, so head on over to the Inspirations blog and enter for your chance at  5 FREE digis!!!!  Plus you'll find amazing inspiration everyday with a tutorial and stamping space thrown in here and there!

I used party snail from Crissy Armstrong.  I just think he's soooo adorable!!!!  The sentiment is from Party snail sentiments by Ann Vento!  The papers are from SEI from the scrapbook convention.  I used them for the background and then paper pieced his hat and balloon.  They are super shimmery IRL, what a great find!  I stitched the edges and then added some flowers to complete the recipe! 

I'm off to check out the hop, to hop along with me click HERE to start the fun!!!!
