A Christmas Fairy & Some Fun Whimsy News



Hello All and a very Happy Tuesday! The card I want to show you today was one of my creations for the Whimsy Inspirations Magazine # 14. You can view the whole issue online HERE. Sadly to say that this was our last issue so far :-( So while supplies last make sure and grab your print version here in the Whimsy Store. 84 pages full of inspiration and tutorials! Before I go on with my card I have some exciting news for you:

 Whimsy is holding a
24 Days of Christmas Event


To thank you all for your continued support of Whimsy Stamps, the Whimsy design team are holding a fun Christmas event on the Whimsy Inspirations blog in the run up to Christmas!

Every day from 1st to 24th December, a member of the design team will be sharing a brand new Whimsy holiday creation here on the Whimsy blog.  Included in these daily posts will be a LETTER.  Visit us every day, make a note of each letter and keep them safe.  Once you have collected all 24 letters, you should be able to unscramble them and make a 4 word phrase.  Email your phrase to whimsystampscontests@gmail.com by 31st December 2013, and if you've guessed correctly, you will be entered into the draw to win a fantastic GRAND PRIZE! 

That's not all!  There will also be some fun SPOT PRIZES throughout the entire event.  The prizes could be hidden on the Whimsy blog or on our design team member's blogs, so be sure to leave a comment on the Whimsy blog AND on the DT's blog posts each day to be in with a chance to win! 
 
So onto my card for today now....

This cute fairy is called 'Silver Fairy' by Sylvia Zet. Available in rubber in the Whimsy Store. I colored her with Copics and the background paper is from MME. I also used the 'Holiday Wishlist' stamp from Whimsy and the sentiment is from the Snowflakes Mini Letter Seals set layered on the Snowflake Mini Seal die. Other dies used are Mini Lace Doily Corner die, Layered Snowflake die and from Memory Box the 'Holly Vine' die. Flowers are from WOC and all other embellies from my stash.


Here's a close-up on the cutie.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. I will be back Thursday with my creation for the 24 Days of Christmas Event!

Hugs,
