Whipper Snapper November Release!!

O.K., Let me just say that I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this day for awhile now.

But first some background . . . My first step into blogland was through a link from Anna Wight's (A.K.A Sweet Miss Daisy) Splitcoast Stampers online gallery. I absolutely fell in love with her style, sense of humor and daily musings. I instantly became an avid follower and fan. She was my stamping idol! I bought all the tools she blogged about, I CASE'd her projects and cards and I practiced the tutorials she posted. I was thrilled when she ventured into the realm of designing stamps for Whipper Snapper. Her stamp designs are just as fabulous as the cards she creates. Always so heartwarming and filled with her sense of humor - some of them just crack me up! :0)

Soooo . . . when I received an email from Anna asking ME if I'd like to be a Whipper Snapper Featured Designer I just about pee'd my pants!! No, really!! She is my stamping rockstar and to let me go "on tour" with her for these next two months is literally a dream come true - Thanks Anna!

Today is RELEASE DAY for two of Anna's new sets!! Woo- Hoo!! Here's a peak;

Aren't they the cutest?? She always has the best sayings to coordinate with her images. I'm having fun playing with these sets and will be posting cards I made through out the week. Here's my first one to show you:

I don't think I've ever seen a snowman of hers I didn't like. She has a way with ice ice baby! (sorry I couldn't resist). This chubby little guy is from the Gardening Snowman set. I used the large SU! snowflake die to cut out the image on chipboard. I then used the negative image for the card. I distressed the chipboard with Ranger distress ink and then stamped the snowflake from Think Snow. I backed the image with a page from an old book, added some faux stitching and buttons. On the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment "Like a snowflake, you are one of a kind."

So, that's my first card as a Featured Designer for Whipper Snapper. I hope you like it. Both of Anna Wight's new sets are available today, over at Whipper Snapper Designs.

Wanna check out some other fabulous creations made with these sets???
