Hi Everyone!!  I am so excited I can't contain it!!
 Whimsy Stamps have some fab news to share with you today - we have a new rubber artist joining our team.... KENNY KIERNAN!

As many of you will know, Kenny K is currently a digital stamp artist (amongst many other things) and although Whimsy will not be carrying any Kenny K digis, we are making some of Kenny's existing designs into rubber and then hopefully adding some new designs along the line that will be exclusive to the Whimsy rubber collection!

So to celebrate this wonderful new venture, the Whimsy Stamps DT plus our fab special Whimsy guests Elaine Hughes, Deb, and Janna, are holding a BLOG HOP to showcase the EIGHT images that are being made into rubber:


All That
Devilish Donna
Download Diva
Kitty Katastrophe
Luscious Linda
Movie Star
Rock Chick
Troublemaker

Remember that Whimsy Stamps will be carrying the rubber versions of these stamps only. Kenny K will continue to offer the digital versions in his store. The rubber stamps are available to PRE-ORDER from today from the Whimsy store, and will hopefully be in stock and start shipping after the holidays!

Our super-talented Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) has designed some wonderful digital sentiments that work fabulously with these images - thank you Ann! These are also being released today!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Marley van der Heijden 's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Simonne's blog.

The hop starts today (Thursday December 16th at noon EST) and ends on Thursday December 23rd at noon EST.

For this hop we have 4 different prize draws! The grand prize of ALL 8 of the new release rubber stamps is being hosted by Denise at the very end of the hop, but there are also 3 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them! *wink* [Winners will be announced on December 23rd after the hop ends - what a wonderful Christmas present for those lucky hoppers!]

Now for my blog hop creation...
or  should I say creations...I used two images because they are so different than my normal style it was so fun breaking from the norm and these images were so fun to color!!!

The first uses the ever so fun Download Diva!!  I colored her with copics.  The paper just seemed so perfect with this image.  It is from DCWV Music.  I don't usually use bright colors but I just love bright colors with these particular images.  Since there were instruments in the background and I did not want to cover them up in my layout, I chose to add a banner instead of panels.  The letters were punched with a Martha Stewart Alphabet punch.

My Second Creation uses the fun Rock Chick image.  The sentiment is one of the sentiments created by Ann as a digi!!  The music background on one of the panels uses Whimsy's Music Notes (also designed by Ann).  The designer paper is from K& Co. Brenda Walton Peppermint stick and some K& Co Valentine paper.  The musical notes are brads. The different panel shaped panels are created with the Labels 14 Spellbinders die and Spellbinders hearts.


Challenges:
Craft Your Days Away (2 weeks) - punches or die cuts
Crafty Emma - anything but a christmas card
Sweet Stampin (2nd card) - 3 DP, 3 embellishments(gold baubles, brads, ribbon), 1 image

Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - For a kid (Teenager works right?)
The Crazy Challenge - at least 3 design papers (2nd card)

One Stitch At A Time #43 - Anything Goes.
Stampin Fairy- glitter - 1st card (dp is full of it)
AiFactory : Anything goes
Bunny Zoe's Craft : Sparkle and Shine
Crafty Sentiments : Anything goesSo now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Vanja Stevanovic's blog where I know she has something amazing to show you!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:
