Whimsy's 24 Days of Christmas Event - Day 5



Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps
24 Days of Christmas Event!



For all of you who do not know what's going on at the moment....Whimsy Stamps and it's design team is holding a 24 Days of Christmas Event to thank you all for your continued support of Whimsy Stamps! :-)

Every day from 1st to 24th December, a member of the design team will be sharing a brand new Whimsy holiday creation on the Whimsy blog.  Included in these daily posts will be a LETTER.  Visit us every day, make a note of each letter and keep them safe.  Once you have collected all 24 letters, you should be able to unscramble them and make a 4 word phrase. Email your phrase to whimsystampscontests@gmail.com by 31st December 2013, and if you've guessed correctly, you will be entered into the draw to win a fantastic GRAND PRIZE! 
But that's not it, there will also be some fun SPOT PRIZES throughout the entire event. They could be hidden either on the Whimsy blog or on our design team member's blogs! And just to let you know even the DT doesn't know where the prizes are hidden!! Be sure to leave a comment on the Whimsy blog  AND on the DT's blog posts each day to be in with a chance to win! Today that will be here on my blog!

Here's the card I made for today using the super cute 'Santa's Glee' stamp by Crissy Armstrong.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Mini Letter Seals and layered on top of one of the 'Layered Snowflake Dies' . That gorgeous Santa's Sleigh is also a Shapeology die. I've added silver Fran-Tage embossing powder to both dies to give them a bit of a vintage look. The DP is from Teresa Collins 'Santa's List' collection. Flowers are from WOC and Magnolia. The small red ornament I got at Hobby Lobby and the wooden star is from Prima. The tree die is a Marianne Design Creatables.


Here's the list of markers I've used:
Copic:
Red: R22, R24, R46, R59
White: B000, C1, C3
Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20
Paper: E53, E50, W3
Hair & beard: warm greys
Shoes & belt: cool greys
Outline: Prisma pencil non-photo blue & OMS





Don't forget to collect your letter on the Whimsy blog and leave comments on both blogs - here and on the Whimsy blog - to be eligible to win!

Good luck and have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hugs,
