Last Whimsie Doodles Post

Good morning crafty peeps!

Today is my last post as Guest Artist for Whimsie Doodles.  I have had so much fun playing with their adorable images !

I figured I would get a jump on my Anniversary card for my hubbs and used this adorable image called Holding Hands in the "What's New" section of the Whimsie Doodle store. 

I used some Bazzill cardstock and new papers from Fancy Pants called Park Bench.  I love the color palette and me thinks it just might be my new favorite paper pack.  I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday as inspiration - while I didn't follow it to a tee, it definitely was used as a jumping off point.  This happy couple is colored in Copics and her cute little bow was given some glitz with Yellow Stickles from Tim Holtz.  I distressed the image and then inked it with some Studio G chalk ink.  The beautiful corner pieces were cut with my Cuttlebug using a Sizzlit die and I also used a Fiskar's punch for some edging behind the image.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  To finish things off, I used some black and white American Crafts twine, a Recollections flower and a button from my stash!

Next up is a card I created using the precious Need A Hug digi in the Whimsie Doodles People section of the store:

This little sweetie and her beary cute friend are given life via Copics and Cotton Candy Stickles.  I loved the design from the Sketchy Colors challenge this week and used that as inspiration.  I used Bazzill cardstock and Recollections With Love paper collection.  I also threw in a journaling card (scalloped circle) from the Making Memories Noteworthy Spiral Notebook.  There are some self-adhesive Recollections bling on the one panel and a K&Company brad on the Bubblegum MFT grosgrain ribbon.  I used Rubbarb Stalk Memento Ink for the sentiment which came in the MFT Pure Innocence Bear Hugs stamp set. 

Hope you all have a fabulous day!
