A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Day 3 - Whimsy Stamps GRAND BLOG HOP

Hi everyone & a huge welcome to the ...

PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! To enter the draw, simply leave a comment HERE and at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday August 8th. 

 For today's project, I have inked up this beautiful image by Crissy Armstrong called 
' A Girl and Her Pumpkin'.
I coloured this gorgeous girl in Prismacolor Pencils and chalked the background.  The beautiful papers are Emerald Isle by M R Designs.  I added cheesecloth between the layers and some twine to my little flower buttons.  The acorns and acorn shell came from a little nature walk with my little boy - left over from a school project he had to complete last year.  I know they're not from the sycamore tree .... but they do add more texture :)

Here's a little close up of this beautiful stamp
I feel very honoured and have thoroughly enjoyed participating as a GDT in this fabulous hop! 
So now it's time for you to continue today's hop! Don’t forget to leave a comment at every stop along the hop to be entered into the draw to win a $25 gift certificate. 

 Thanks so much for visiting today. 
Happy hopping!
