SS #114 & Whimsy Stamps : New Digi Release & New Monthly Challenge

Hey everyone and thanks for popping by today!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing a whole host of gorgeous new digital stamps,  and to celebrate, the digi team plus guests are holding a blog hop. So if you'd like to join in (and I know you will!), hop on over to the Whimsy Inspiration blog where there is a complete hop list and details of the prize, etc.

Not only does the 1st of the month mean new Whimsy digi images, it also marks the beginning of a new monthly challenge over at the Whimsy Inspiration blog. This month we have the nice and easy challenge of ANYTHING GOES! So get your Whimsy rubber or digis out and join in - we have a wonderful prize of 5 digis (winner's choice) for one lucky randomly-drawn winner, and that winner could be YOU!!

Because I seem to be caught in a never-ending "busy whirlwind" at the moment (plus I'm having more dental problems, new treatment, and more investigations...oh joy!), I have combined today's Whimsy challenge card with yesterday's Sketch Saturday sketch #114. Sketch Saturday #114 is being sponsored by The Craft Barn this week, and we have another of Jo's amazing sketches to follow (I have turned the sketch 90 degrees to the left):

For my card today, I have used the adorable and brand *NEW* Whimsy rubber stamp called Jelly Bean.  Isn't Jelly Bean the sweetest?  You can purchase this wonderful stamp from Whimsy Stamps (or from Quixotic Paperie if you're in the UK/Europe).

Please pop on over to both Sketch Saturday, and of course the Whimsy Inspirations Blog to see what my amazing DT sisters have created for you - I promise you won't be disappointed!  And then start hopping away to see the new and fabulous Whimsy digis!
Have a fabulous day, and I'll see you on Tuesday with my Sparkle Creations challenge card!
