Whimsy Blog Hop

Wow... amazing isn't it? July 1st is already here!

Today is very special for a couple of reasons. One because it's my very first posting for Whimsy and second because it's also Whimsy's Digital Monthly Blog Hop!! Which means there are chances for YOU to win some images by commenting along the way of the hop! There will be 2 random blogs chosen to pick 2 winners from their comments and the winners gets to chose a digi of their choice. A grand prize winner of the hop will also be chosen and will receive 5 images of their choice!! Check out all of the teams blogs as their is some fantastic inspiration for you to check out. The hop will runs for one week and ends on Sunday July 8th at Noon EST.

Since you made it to me you probably came from Shannah and your next blog to visit to qualify for FREE images is Wendy. There are some really wonderful new digi releases this month which are available in the store today at 10 am.

For today's card I chose Lexi's Beach Ball. She is so adorable. She was colored with copics. The sand is two kinds of sand mixed together and then I placed some translucent smooth to make parts of it SPARKLE!! I paper punched Lexi's bathing suit. Her ball was also colored with copics, sparkle was added and then clear applique to give it dimension. A shell brad was added from my stash. The ribbon was airbrushed with green and yellow centers and I placed dew drops in the centers. I embossed the background with a cuttlebug folder and the edges were done with Martha Stewards shells corner piece. The centers from the shells I placed on the right side for fun.
