Whimsy Stamps New Release BLOG HOP


Hey everyone, and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps New Release Blog Hop!

If you'd like to participate in the hop, and you didn't arrive here from Vicki's blog, then click here to return to the start of the blog hop, as you don't want to miss all the gorgeous new releases!

The hop begins today at 9am (EST) and ends at noon (EST) on Thursday 8th October, so you have plenty of time to get hopping. If you fancy being in with a chance to win some delicious Whimsy blog candy (see pic below), then all you have to do is leave a comment on every one of the DT's blog hop posts - easy! But make sure you visit everyone, as otherwise you won't be eligible to be entered into the grand prize draw to win ... 3 new Pet stamps PLUS the matching sentiment set:

Also, some of the DT will be giving our individual cards away to one of our blog hop post commenters (and there might even be a little surprise included!), so if you'd like to be included in the mini-draw, please say so in your comments.

So today I'd like to share with you a brand new release stamp called Whimsy Summer Day Emma, and this will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store from Monday 5th October, along with all the other stamps you'll see on today's hop.

For my card, I followed the scrumptious sketch over at Sketch & Stamp challenge #20 (...again - told you I loved this sketch!!). My new stash is the Whimsy stamp (of course!) plus the OA paper and co-ordinating Bazzil cardstock.
