WHIMSY BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE

Good morning all!! While you are reading this, I am off on vacation for the next ten days with my family!! We are going to be on a houseboat out on the lake and looking forward to some wonderful swimming, tubing, skiing, playing on our new water trampoline, and catching up on my reading!!! I am sooooo looking forward to this - I need to rest up after the crazy month I have had at my new job!!! I will have a few posts to share while I am gone starting with this one! Today is Whimsy Challenge day and the challenge is to make a birthday card!! I decided that the Whimsy pig was exactly what I needed to use for this one, and I love how he turned out! Make sure you check out the rest of the DT gals - they did a fabulous job and made some really fun cards!! And, why not try it out yourself? If you do, remember to upload your link to the Whimsy Challenges Site so that at the end of the week you can be in the drawing for something fun from Denise! And no, you do not have to use Whimsy stamps, but if you have them, why not use them? And, if you don't have them, check out the Whimsy store, Denise has lots of cute stamps and some new digi items as well!! Enjoy your day - and thanks soooo much for stopping by!! I will visit you all when I get back!! Toodles!!!
