Whimsy and Stars sneak peek

Happy Easter! Thanks so much for dropping by today. Hope you are having a lovely Easter with family and friends if you celebrate.

On Thursday Whimsy and Stars is having a big Spring release. I always love the girly images from Mabelle (the talented artist behind these fabby images), and there are some cute ones coming. But I decided to color this one up first, cause it was a bit different. It's called Cups of Kindness (will be available on 4-28). I love the teacups, sitting kind of askew. Make sure to check out the Whimsy and Stars blog on Thursday to see all of the new images!

I've used Tracy's Eat, Sleep, Stamp sketch (Sketchy Thursday #127) for this one. Her sketches rock, they are always so well put together. And I'm using the Play Date Cafe color challenge (PDCC78). I love red and pink together, and throwing in baby blue was a fun combo.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are having a great Sunday.

Card Recipe:
Image: Whimsy and Stars Cups of Kindness. Verve sentiment
Ink: Printer, Palette Noir
Paper: PTI ssw, SU Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Bashful Blue, DCWV polka dot
Embellishments: nesties, copics, stickles, SU corner rounder, cuttlebug embossing folder, Amuse twinkle stickers

Your blog title cracked me up! I love wine, but can't stamp and drink at the same time: compromises my cards too much! LOL Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe. :)
