A Ride on the Merry-Go-Round

Round and Round and Round we go. What a fantastic ride on the Merry-go-round this is! Haven't the DT made some gorgeous creations with these new stamps?

If you've landed here from Nikki's Blog you are at the right stop.

If you have just hopped on the merry-go-round at my blog, then you may want to start the ride from the beginning at Bev's Blog.

The hop will run until Wednesday, March 17th at noon EST

The Whimsy DT are celebrating the launch of some new stamp sets in the Crissy Armstrong Collection. There are 3 new stamps:
Spring Stepping
Proud Momma
Wings of Hope ($1 from every sale will go to the American Red Cross)

For my card I've used Spring Stepping.

I'm also going to enter it into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - the fab sketch (which I've taken a liberty with by moving some items. lol)
The Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations Challenge - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy - Horse
Cupcake Challenge - Flower Power
Stamp with fun - Spring
Creative Inspirations - Charms

This is such a gorgeous stamp! And so much fun to colour in. The stamping round the edge of the card is one of the accessories that come with this carousel horse.


I decided to decoupage the horse - only 3 layers but it looks really effective.

I'd better let you have a look at the prize for this hop. It's a full set of the new stamps, two pieces of satin ribbon, a package of ICE sticky gems, and 10 two-tone pink Prima roses. Please remember to leave all the DT a comment on your way round to be in with a chance of winning this prize.


Whimsy Stamps will be offering a special promotion from noon EST on Sunday until noon EST on Monday. The first 25 orders placed at Whimsy, regardless of total, will receive free shipping. Shipping will be charged at checkout, but if your order was one of the first 25 orders in that 24 hour period, you will receive a shipping credit. This is a one day only special promotion during our new release!

To carry on the Merry-go-round ride hop on again and your next stop is our new teamie Chris's Blog

Don't forget that Whimsy are looking for a couple of GDT members and you can find the details here.




Have fun and thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
