Happy Monday Everyone!! It is a beginning to a new week and Whimsy is kicking it up with some fun!! ...... A blog hop for their new Digital image and sentiment release!!! Today is the release of 2 images illustrated by the uber talented Katie Sowa and 4 by the exceptional Crissy Armstrong!! That isn't all...there are several sentiments to coordinate created by our very own dt sister Ann Vento of Rain Drop Echo designs!! So now Denise at Whimsy Stamps will be selling both digital and rubber stamps!!!

If you have been on the hop and came here from Simonne's blog, you are in the right place, if not, you may want to start at the beginning here at Crissy's blog. You won't want to miss the team's exceptional creations or the blog hop prize....
a $15 gift certificate to the Whimsy Store Crissy's Digi "Pebbles the Cat", Katies's Digi "Awww, So Tweet!", Ann's Sentiments "Mother's Day Sentiments", Whimsy Digi "Princess Coach"

and there will be a freebie digital stamp set available to all blog hoppers.

Here are my creations for the hop:

This is an easel card with four drawers that I created using the Hang In There image illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and the Hang in there sentiments designed by Ann Vento. The dp is from K& Co.'s Madeline collection. I colored the image with prisma color pencils and gamsol. For some finishing touches I added lots of stitching, flowers, pearls, satin ribbon, bows, and lace. I color sprayed the background behind the turtle and sponged as well.
This second creation uses the Love Bunnies image illustrated by Katie Sowa, the Love Bunny sentiments designed by Ann Vento, and the Perfect Presentations gift treat box template designed by Leigh Ann Baird.

I used no dp just Cool Caribbean cs. The image is colored with Prisma color pencils and gamsol. I plan to use this for a birthday gift for my niece to package some earrings I bought her.

I am entering these creations to the following challenges:
