Whimsy and Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Whimsy and Stars January blog hop. Mabelle has released two sweet images today! Both are super cute!


If you arrived from Christine's blog you are in the right spot. Hop along with us and leave comments along the way, two random people will be selected to win a stamp of their choice (and you should see the sweet Valentine images Mabelle has available)! You will want to have a chance to win for sure! The hop will end on Tuesday Jan. 8th at 7:00 am (EST).

For my card I've used Wintertime Boy. I've colored him with copics and paired him with some Authentiuqe papers. I was planning to send this one to OWH, but all three of my boys have asked if it was for them, lol. Might need to make a few more!
