Whimsy Stamps: Emma Swinging

Hey everyone!  It's my turn to post on the Whimsy Inspiration's blog today, and I have a brand new card to share that I finished literally 30 minutes ago!

I've used one of the May release Whimsy Digi stamps called "Emma Swinging" - she is available to download instantly from the Whimsy Store along with all the other scrumptious Whimsy digi stamps (and of course Whimsy rubber ... although you'll have to wait for your postie to deliver those, LOL!).

I've decided that I'm going to have to tidy up my crafty stash, as I'm just shoving things in my Ikea storage unit at the moment and consequently it's very difficult to find stuff quickly and efficently!  Although I don't have a huge amount of stash, I am finding that I'm forgetting stuff that I've 'hidden' away, like this fairly new DCWV Garden Variety stack that I've used for today's card. So I think a trip to Ikea is necessary (urghh!) plus I'm going to have to spend some pennies on some 12x12 paper storage and a good system for storing stamps., baskets for punches, etc. etc - you know the drill!  I do have my buttons and nesties sorted and stored ... well it's a start, LOL!

I've followed this fortnight's fab sketch from Truly Scrumptious (in its mirror-image) -Whimy Stamps is sponsoring this challenge, so do pop along and join in to be in with a chance of winning a $15 Whimsy gift certificate!  Talking of sponsorship and challenges, I can also give you the heads up that Whimsy is sponsoring tomorrow's new Creative Card Crew challenge!  So two chances to win some Whimsy goodies this week!

Wishing you a wonderful day, whatever you're up to!
Thanks for popping by!
