Whimsie Doodles January Release Day

GOOD MORNING WHIMSIE DOODLES FANS!  It is the 5th of the month (one of my most favorite times of the month!) and we have some fantastic new images to share with you today! They will definitely help you get your Whimsie Doodles fix...  well, at least for a little while, right?  I mean, really, can you ever get your fill of Whimsie Doodles?!?!  I know I can't :)

 First up Little Leah is on her way to a Birthday party, here's Gift Leah.

Penguin Hugs is the perfect image to warm up your loved ones during the cold winter!

What's not to love about Toadly??  He is CA-UTE, with a capital C! 
Does this little sweetheart look like anyone to you?  Melyssa is a big Criminal Minds fan, and when she made this image, she immediately thought it looked like the computer guru on the show (and I totally agree!!).  Say hello to Penelope!
 This one is for all of you Star Wars fans!  His name is R2...
  
And what is Valentine's Day without a little heat?  This cutie's name is Little Hottie!

And last, but certainly not least is the NEW Valen-tinies, which I just happened to use on my sample below. These adorable cuties are sized to fit in a 2 inch punch or Nestie perfectly.  They are just right for tags or mini cards, but can easily be sized to fit a standard sized cad as well!  We can't wait to see what you can do with these!
For my card today I have used the socks image and coordinating sentiment from the new set. I thought this would be a good card for my husband on Valentine's Day.
The colors I used on this card (red, white & gray) were inspired by the new color challenge at SCS (CC304) and make a great combo for a masculine card. The layout for this card came from the latest MOJO Monday sketch challenge - 172.

After coloring the image in red and shades of gray I hand-cut it out and adhered it to an embossed, scalloped, circle with dimensional foam. One end of the sentiment was rounded before being adhered to the left side. For a finishing touch I added some clear gems.
Be sure to visit all of the Doodlelicious Diva blogs today to see what they have created with the new images--  you won't want to miss any of the Doodlelicious eye candy!
