Introducing Forest Whimsy + Giveaway!

Paper Smooches  recently released a NEW stamp set called "Forest Whimsy". You may remember these images from a former stamp set called "Forest Friendzy". It was sold by Cornish Heritage Farms and Illustrated by Kim Hughes. Kim "tweaked" every image in the set and gave them a fresh new look! They are now manufactured with the highest quality clear photopolymer on the market and stamp beautifully! She is releasing a new stamp set from the former "Kim Hughes Collection" on the 15th of each month at the Paper Smooches web site.

I am LuCKy enough to be sharing a card made with Forest Whimsy with you today, AND I have a Forest Whimsy stamp set to give away to one lucky person! You have until midnight on November 20th to leave a comment. I will post the winner on Monday, November 21st.

Before I show you my card, I want to share a bit of the inspiration for my card, giggle!



My tribute to Forest Whimsy and my beloved Green Bay Packers, complete with cheesehead cap and matching banner!

I had so much fun playing with this set and can't wait to conjure up a few more sports gnomes! Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to WIN THIS SET! For more chances to win, please visit Kim and Debbie's blogs where we both KNOW they'll have something wonderful for your eyeballs to ogle!

My husband is a huge Packers fan! He isn't quite sure about gnomes though! I wanted an Iowa Hawkeye gnome and he just couldn't quite see why. Now, a Packer gnome just might hit the mark. Meanwhile I would love to have the set. Maybe if I made a cheesehead gnome he wouldn't mind me purchasing another set but if I won it..... Thanks for the cutie patootie!
