Hi everyone!! This is my second post of the day so if you are here for my
YNS or Creative Belli creation, click here.

Please forgive me for the skipping of lines and the format of my post.
Blogger just is not cooperating.   GRRRRRR!

Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps December New Rubber Release
Blog Hop!!! Ann Vento, Crissy Armstrong, Melissa Jenkins (Meljen's),
as well as Denise have been busy preparing a gorgeous new line of images
and sentiments!! You are in for a real treat!!  
We have NINE gorgeous new Whimsy Stamps to show you today!
These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Whimsy
 Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. We also have our
wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - the amazing trio
of Bev, Deb, and Beate!

Here is a full list of the super fabulous new rubber stamps being released

Winter's Joy (Crissy Armstrong) Valerie's Gift (Crissy Armstrong) I'd Follow You Anywhere (Crissy Armstrong) Love in a Bucket (Crissy Armstrong) Cozy Cap Mouse (Meljen's Designs) Penguin's Present (Meljen's Designs) Love Letter Seals (Raindrop Echo Designs) Music Notes Background (Raindrop Echo Designs) Friendship Tickets (Raindrop Echo Designs)
If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive

chance to win. 
The grand prize of ALL 9 of the new release stamps is being

Now on to my creation....I began working on a card using the
I'd  Follow You illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and the Winter Letter Seals
designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo designs,
and then decided to do something different.  I created my own
treat bag template and came up with this.  The top border is created with
the jumbo scallop borderabilities from Spellbinders.  The papers are Basic
Grey Marjolane.  The bow on the bag uses green silk ribbon from May
arts.  The ribbon for the handles is Blue Bayou ribbon from my in color stash
from SU a few years ago. The blue snowflakes are felt from SU (a few years old).
The green snowflakes layered over top is punched using old olive and a MS 
Snowflake punch.
 I hope you enjoyed my creation, for the next stop on the hop,
