Two Special Guests...

...were asked to create a project using Forest Whimsy.
These sweet designers are:

Amy Rohl

Debbie Olson

I have always admired these talented ladies and I can't wait to see what they created for today.

Both gals have one Forest Whimsy stamp set to give away on their blogs.  You will have to go visit them to find out the details.

I have a stamp set to give away here as well - YAY!!  You have until midnight on November 20th to leave a comment.  I will post the winner on Monday, November 21st.


I thought it might be fun to make a card showing only a portion of the gnome...it's kinda silly :)  I made faux stitches with a black pen.

























Hope your weekend is wonderful

This has got to be my fave set yet, I'm so thrilled to have finally got it after waiting so long for it's release!
