Advent Calendar - Day 8 giveaway


Welcome to Day 8 of the Whimsy Advent Calendar.


How are you liking the calendar inspiration from the DT so far? Brilliant, isn't it.

Are you ready for a prize?



Today it is my turn to host the prize and I have a lovely Soccor Conner stamp to give away. This stamp is one of the handiest I have in my stamp collection for making boys cards. It's one of those stamps that you'll always be reaching for.



Okay, to win this stamp, just leave a comment on this post and tomorrow I will pick one lucky person at random to be the winner.



Here's my inspiration for you today. A little Christmas card using the Whimsy Penguin and Seal stamp.

This card has another home made background of smudged ink, I stamped some holly swirls from an Inkadinkado Christmas Border set around the edge, embossed it with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder and stickled all the dots. The image is coloured with promarkers and some glamour dust has been added to the ice puddle. The sentiment is one of the Whimsy Holiday Circles postmarks. Then I simply matted the two pieces of paper onto some blue paper, added a ribbon and the card was made. A really easy card to make.


Don't forget that Whimsy also have a holiday card contest which is still open until 12 Dec - just click on the link on my sidebar and it'll take you to the details.


Thanks for looking and Good Luck!
