March Whimsy Stamps Digi Blog Hop

Woo hoo! It's the first of the month so that means it is time for the Whimsy Stamps digi release blog hop. This month we have releases from Crissy's Digis and Meljen's Designs.

If you came from Sandra's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you might want to start at the beginning of the hop at the Whimsy Inspiration blog so you don't miss out on any eye candy or chances to win the prizes. The blog hop will go until Tuesday, March 8th, noon EST. Two mystery blogs along the way will be giving away a digi of their choice to a random commenter. So be sure to comment on every blog along to way to increase your chances of winning. The Grand Prize winner will be picked at Dawn's blog. The grand prize is 5 digital stamps of your choice from Whimsy Stamps and the chance to use those new images as a guest designer for Whimsy for the entire month of March.

Now that all the hop details are taken care of, let's get to the eye candy. I decided to use one of Crissy's newly release images, Dog Song.

I knew I had to use this image as soon as I saw it. With it's head up and big ears, I swear Crissy must have based Dog Song on my dog, Summer. (Just kidding, but there is a really strong resemblance.) We have nicknamed Summer "Woo" or "The Woo" because when she is excited, or wants to be sassy, she puts up her head just like this and says "Woo, woo, woo". I'm not kidding. Her ears stick out just like this too. So, you certainly can understand my need to use this image.

I "liberated" these papers from my daughter's crafting supplies. (Because I don't have enough of my own you know.) Seriously, she has had these for a really long time and doesn't use them. Since I finally found my Tim Holtz paint, I decided I had better use before I misplace it again. It seems I can never find it when I want to use it.

Thank you for hopping by today. Your next stop on the hop is Melissa's blog.

Here is the complete blog hop list in case you get lost along the way.

I laughed so hard at your description of your dog Summer. Cuz this image is actually based on our dog Spitfire, who does just what your Summer does, when she is trying to tell us she can't reach her ball that rolled under a dresser or some such thing! lol Too funny! I love your card and the sentiment under it is perfectly matched!!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
