Whimsy Stamps - Holiday Card Contest

I'm back!! So sorry for my long absense, but I am officially back to my stamping, yeah!! And what a better way to get me back into stamping than with a challenge!! My card today was for Whimsy Stamps Holiday Card Contest. You can check out all the details on the website here:




The rules for the contest are as follows:


Enter only once with a holiday themed card, which MUST include a Whimsy Stamps image and it must also be created for this contest. Please feel free to combine it with other challenges, but do create a NEW card with this contest in mind.


Post your card on your blog with links back to our home page: http://whimsystamps.com, spreading the word about our contest


No blog, no problem! Just email your entry to Whimsy Stamps and we will be sure it’s included in the contest


Provide a direct link to your card, by Saturday, December 12th at 11:59pm ET using the Mr. Linky Feature below


The 3 finalists will be announced on Sunday, December 13th, here on this page and the voting we begin! We we add a poll for voting along with images of the cards from each of the 3 finalists. Voting will continue until Saturday, December 19th at 11:59pm ET. We will announce the winner on Sunday, December 20th!



So, what's a girl to do when she doesn't have any of Whimsy Stamp's holiday stamps? She improvises! See my Mele Kalikimaka card below!!



I used their adorable Whimsy Turtle stamp along with a stamp set from Close to my Heart called Tropical Christmas. How cute is this turtle wearing a Santa Hat? And I love the palm tree all decked out for Christmas! Someday, when I live in FL, I will have a palm tree with lights on it in my yard!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays and Happy Stamping!
