Whimsy New Release - May Blog Hop

ooohhhhh don't you just love the start of a new month????  There are many reasons why a new month is lovely but one of them is because there is always a new release of digi images from

and another reason is because there is a Blog Hop ... which of course means lots of inspiration and some prizes....... so don't forget to go in the proper order and leave a comment on everyone's blog!

You should have arrived here from Suzi's blog ... The Manic World of Mrs Weyremaster  If you get lost along the way then just head back over to the Whimsy blog for a list :)

For my card I have used this totally cute new image called Little Bear Garden Delight.  As soon as I saw this little bear I just HAD to colour it.  I have used Copic Markers and some Spica pens.

 The base card is a lovely deep purple and I have used a matching piece for the 'diamond border' piece.  This is a Spellbinders Die from Classic Decorative Inserts Five.  I have stuck on some little rhinestones to tie in the pinks.  The flowers are from Kaisercraft (I think ... ).  The Flourish is a Cheery Lynn Deigns Die called Tropical Flourish.
The gorgeous background paper is from a Collage Paper Pack from Pink Paislee.  The Pack is called Vintage Vogue.

This little bear was a pure delight to colour ... so simple and so gorgeous.

Don't forget to start at the beginning of the hop .... and leave a comment on each page .... there are gorgeous projects that will truly inspire you.  And of course there will be a couple of prizes to win along the way.

Your next stop will be Michelle's Blog ... Stamps, Paper & Donkey Smiles.

Thankyou so much for stopping by ... enjoy hopping.
