WHIMSY RECIPE CHALLENGE

Happy Monday all!!! Well, here it was, my first weekend off after starting my new job and wouldn't you know it, I spent most of the weekend fighting a huge migraine and sinus infection - ugggghhhh.......! None of the stamping and blogging I had planned got done so I was disappointed about that!! Still don't feel 100% but I have to get to work so I will take my drugs and hope for the best!! I am pretty sure it is because the weather keeps changing so drastically - we go from super hot to chilly every few days and it is killin' me!!! But, I digress.....let me get to the real reason you are here -it's Whimsy Challenge Day!! Today's challenge is a recipe challenge - you have to use two patterned papers, one ribbon, and either ribbons, brads, or flowers for your embellies!! Super easy, right? I decided to use my adorable new lion stamp - I just love this guy!!! Make sure pop by the Whimsy site and check out what the other DT gals did for this one, they are really amazing!! And, remember, if you want to play along, you don't have to use a Whimsy stamp, but if you do, you get an extra chance at winning a fabulous Whimsy stamp for your collection! Just upload your link and you are entered!! Have a fabulous day and I am will be stopping by to visit you guys once I get off work today!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Now that's one cute lion! I must get familiar with those Whimsey stamps! Glad your job is doing well, but sorry you are feeling so punk! I used to be plagued with migraines--terrible ones, then had my hysterectomy and lo and behold they were gone!! I will never forget them, however!!

Hope your Monday went well....and I hope you are enjoying your new job!
