Sorry to be late with this post, busy morning here! It's about 90 degrees in the shade, but the can't complain after the cold winter we had. Hope it's nice where ever you are!
Today I want to share a very special digital image, which is now available at Whimsy and it's FREE! Crissy Armstrong created this sassy Beach Baby Jayme image for our DT member Lisa's sister Jayme. Sadly, Jayme was recently diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and so Lisa is asking for our help to send her sister some smiles. You can find all the details of Lisa's RAK request on her blog, HERE.

Here are a couple cards using this new image....

Looking forward to seeing your creations! Good luck!
Whimsy is carrying both rubber stamps and digital images in their store!! Two weeks ago they had a new digital release and I have yet to use all of them. I just love them and just had to ink up Emma's Swing illustrated by Kevin Lynn, Denise's husband (talent must run in the family!!) and Ann's digi sentiment set Emma Swinging Sentiments. I had so much fun coloring her. I don't usually use orange but I was trying to encourage myself to think outside of the box.I used some Basic Grey Paper and colored the image with prisma and gamsol. I used the Saturday Sketch from 2 weeks ago. I so am enjoying the Scalloped Edge Frame from Spellbinders and its versatility. I laced it with ribbon. The branches are created with a fern stamp from SU.
I hope you enjoyed my creation today and that you are inspired to create or even check out the Whimsy store.
Oh I also wanted to remind you that Whimsy has a month long challenge and you still have a chance to join us.
Please enter your NEW creation, using the linky feature here, by 12noon EST Sunday, May 31st.

Good Morning everyone!!!! I have a fun sneak peek to share with you today!!! Crissy and Ann are releasing some fabulous new sets next Monday, May 17th and here is your first peek at one of the fabulous images!!! These were created by my now 6 year old for her birthday party invites. I think she did a fabulous job!!!
These were fun and easy for her to create. I made little "kits" of papers and embellies and she helped put them together. They are 5 1/2 in square cards and the party info is typed on the back. I used my scraps where ever possible, so they even helped me get rid of some of those!!! They are colored in with crayolas:)
Thanks for stopping by today, be on the lookout for more sneak peeks!!!!
And the digi release challenge is still in full swing!!! Click HERE for more details and your chance to win!!
Have a great day,

Today I'm sharing with you some tutorials on how to merge images using some Whimsy Stamps digital images. There are a lot of possibilities for creating scenes and putting together sentiments and images. I've created three tutorials on how to merge images on three different programs: Microsoft Publisher, Word 2003 and Word 2007 all using a Windows operating system. The steps should still be similar if you're using a Mac. My favorite program to merge images by far is Microsoft Publisher because you simply have to open the images and drag them around - no need to format the pictures.
To play/pause, just click on the tutorial screen. To enlarge the tutorial screens to Full Screen views, just click on the bottom right hand corner of the tutorial window on the box containing for arrows expanding outwards. To exit from Full Screen mode, hit the "Esc" key located at the corner left hand of your keyboard.
(steps are identical for Publisher 2007)
Oh, I forgot to mention!

It's nothing but a corner in my bedroom...but it gets the job done! And it's quite clean in this pic compared to normal. So in this space, I created this:
I used the adorable "Three Little Pigs," by MelJen Designs for Whimsy. Isn't it just the cutest? I made it for my mother for Mother's Day. She is a pig collector, so I thought it was just perfect! The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy.
Please feel free to share pics of your workspace too! We'd love to see it! Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your day!
