Hi Everyone!! This is my second post of the day...IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE OUR DAILY BREAD DESIGNS BLOG HOP, Please scroll down to the next post.

Good Afternoon All!! Today is a busy day for me here and blogland with two new releases!! Oh how fun!! This post is to introduce the new challenge over at Whimsy for their new digi release!! Whimsy has lots of new digi's illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and Meljen's Designs!! If you go to the Whimsy blog, you will even have the opportunity to join a New Release Blog hop and have an opportunity to win some awesome images!!

A huge thank you to everyone who played along with us last month for the Whimsy challenge - it was so wonderful to see all your gorgeous Whimsy creations!

So onto this month's challenge - a sketch! Please remember to qualify for entry into the prize draw, you must follow the sketch and use a Whimsy Stamps image (rubber or digi).

For my creation, I used the new~"Love Me Anyway" digi stamp from Crissy Armstrong's digital collection. Isn't it just darling. The dp is some new October Afternoon paper I bought while away on vacation. Love October Afternoon paper and it is not available here so this was quite the treat. The flowers on the ribbon I created with beads and rhinestones.
