Blog Hoppin' with Whimsy and Stars Studio

(If you haven't had a chance to cast your vote over at Fashionista I'd really 
appreciate it if you'd pop over and vote for my card.  Here's the link.)

     It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  To get ready for the season, we are having a blog hop to show off all the Christmas and winter themed images available from Whimsy and Stars Studio and to introduce the new Winter 2013 design team!



     If you just arrived from Suzanne's blog, you are on the right track!  If not, please start at the beginning of the hop at the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog to make sure you don't miss out on anything. Hop along and leave a comment for each member of  design team.  The hop will end on Friday, December 7th at midnight EST.  One random winner, to be announced on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog on December 8th, will be picked from all the comments received to win the Grand Prize of THREE Digi Stamps.
     Decorations, the spirit of giving, and showing love to those we know and don't make this season so special.  I'm not really sure why we don't practice it all year long it's so wonderful.  I've used Mabelle's new "Christmas Tag" digi on my card.  I colored the image with Copics and then added Glossy Accents to the berries.


     I tried to get a better picture of the shine of the Glossy Accents on the berries.  It looks so cool in real life.


     Since we're showcasing the winter and Christmas images from W&SS I thought I'd pop in another pic of the card I posted last week using "Snowball Boy".


     Isn't he a cutie!  
     For the duration of the hop,  Mabelle is offering a special gift with purchase. With any order from the Whimsy and Stars Studio Etsy store, you can select one of two special images, Stocking Ted or Xmas Tag.

                                   

     Thank you for hopping with us today!  I'm the end of the hop, but we'd sure love it if you popped back in to the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog and let us know what you thought of the hop.  
     Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop on the hop to increase your chance of winning the Grand Prize!
     Here is the entire blog hop list in case you get lost along the way:
