Stamp Something

Hi! In honor of Thanksgiving here in the states, the theme of this week's Stamp Something Challenge is Thanks!  I used this adorable new Magnolia I won from Bunny Zoe's.  The papers are from Whimsy Stamps and I love them!!!  Very soft non-traditional colors.  The sentiment is from Whimsy as well, the "thank you" is from Stampin Up.  Simple embellies on this one ribbon, stickles, pearls and a felt snowflake.
I am most likely taking the week off from blogging to celebrate the holiday.  So here's wishing you all a fabulous Thanksgiving, my it be filled with friends, family and turkey:)

Digi Day!

***CLICK HERE for the WHIMSY BLOG HOP***

Hi all! Another Digi Day at Stamp Something!!  I used this sassy image from Sassy Studios.  The sentiment is the new winter seal from Whimsy Stamps.  This is one of those cards that was really cute in my head but not so much on paper.  I think I need to fiddle with it for a bit before I'm happy with it. 
The strand of tinsel is from Stampin Up.
