Happy Birthday Whimsie Doodles!

Welcome to our 2nd Birthday Blog Hop!  We are so excited that you are here and we cannot wait to celebrate with you!  In honor of Whimsie's second birthday, Melyssa has designed an adorable new rubber stamp set-- woo hoo!  I love that it is Whimsie's birthday, but we get all of the presents!

Before I show you the new images, let's get to the nitty gritty on how today's BLOG HOP will work, shall we?
  1. Each participant must visit each Doodlelicious Diva design team blog, as well as this one, and leave a comment.  At each blog you will collect a letter, which you will unscramble to receive 20% off in the Whimsie Doodles store until midnight on Thursday, March 17th! 
  2. In addition to the HUGE discount you'll receive by hopping and unscrambling, we'll draw one random winner to receive a HUMONGOUS prize: The new BABY JOY rubber stamp set, a set of hand made cards designed by the Doodlelicious Divas and a $25 gift certificate to the Whimsie Doodles store!
And now for the star of today's show.... this is Baby Joy!

I decided to use non-typical baby colors for my Baby Joy card.  I stamped in black and used Copics to color the image.  For the sentiment, I stamped the full "A New Little One to Love and Adore" as pictured above, and used my scissors to snip out just part of it and attached it as a tab on the side of my image panel.  This is a great way to stretch your sentiment sets out-- and maybe even use them for a different occasion than they were intended.  The possibilities are endless!

Have you figured out what my letter is yet?  I gave you some clues in the beginning of my post :)  If you haven't guessed already, my letter is....

Now, on to the Diva blogs, to see their amazing cards and projects!  Don't forget to gather your letters and leave some love at all of the stops!

Go forth and HOP!  Have fun!  Thanks for stopping by!
