A Spin on the Merry Go Round Whimsy Blog Hop



Welcome to the Whimsy Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from  ERIN'S blog you are on the right track.  If not please start at the beginning of the hop HERE.  Today we are introducing you to the latest stamps by Crissy Armstrong.  These horses are BEAUTIFUL. Denise has also started selling Primas and some bling in the WHIMSY STORE:)

I have used the WINGS OF HOPE Carousel Horse.  ONE DOLLAR from each purchase will be donated to the American Red Cross.  Don't you love when your "addiction" can help benefit others.  Seriously, what a wonderful thing for Denise to do.  I paired my stamp with some K&Co papers called Amy Butler.  I got to use some new trim and some of those vintage buttons I love.  My sketch is from the latest PaperCrafts magazine and, YES, my trim is supposed to be crooked:)

Denise has some BLOG CANDY  for one lucky person participating in the hop.

Check it out!



Follow along on the blog hop to find out how to win this great prize.

One final thing to add.....

"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!
So don't miss out on the fun....
Take another spin on the carousel and end up at SHARON'S blog.  Wheee!
