Hello everyone! Welcome to the fun of the Whimsy Stamps New Release Blog hop! I'm so glad you could join in.

What is the hop all about? Whimsy have a new release of stamps which will be available to purchase from 5th October from the Whimsy Stamps website, and the design team are all giving you sneak peeks at the brand new images. They are wonderful!
Here's my peek at one of the new releases.
