For the 'fine print' on the contest, including how to enter your name in the drawing and the deadline(s), make sure to check out the blog hop post on the Whimsie Doodles blog by clicking HERE.


On to my sample…

I have used the new Christmas Greetings digital stamp set to create this set of 3x3 mini cards/tags. Once all of the images were colored, these were so easy and fun to put together. The bottom half of each card base was embossed. After a scalloped strip of patterned paper was adhered across the center, I inked all of the edges with white ink. Finally the colored images were placed, using dimensionals, on the center of each card.


This set will be available tomorrow at the Whimsie Doodles online store. Now you will head on over to Andrea's blog!! I know she will have some wonderful eye candy for you. By the way, have you guessed yet what my 'secret letter' is yet?!
