Whimsy Digi Stamps ~ Daddy Lion

Oh my goodness I am in love…….. I found Whimsy Digi Stamps only a few short weeks ago, just before I went on holiday and I downloaded a few freebies to play with, I ADORE them so I went and bought a couple more too and some paper packs.

This one is a FREEBIE from their website, its Daddy Lion and a cutie he is too, I have coloured him in using alcohol markers and made my own sentiment to add to.

Hope you like hugs Aly xx

Itsy Bitsy teeny weeny……

Well after a nice recharge of the old batteries in Devon, I am back and today I was rummaging through an old box of stamps and I found this little teeny tiny set at the bottom and I thought I have to make something with them as they are so cute, so I had a play and made this little card, sometimes I overlook stamps as I think they are too small or not enough to make a decent sized card but small is beautiful as they say so here is my little 4x4 card I created.
