For the whole month of April you can purchase the images as a set or individually by visiting this page on the Whimsy store site.Please consider helping this special cause by purchasing one or all of the digi images we are offering. Now if you've landed here from ERIN'S BLOG then you're in the right place,if not you may want to start from the beginning which is CRISSY'S BLOG,and she has the blog rotation order posted there if you need it. The amazing ladies of two design teams have come together to host this blog hop for you!Crissy's Crew from Sundays With Crissy and Denise's DT from Whimsy Stamps have joined forces to design some amazing creations for you...you have seven days to hop through all the blogs and enjoy all the lovely creations from these talented people. The hop runs now until Sunday April 10th at noon EST.....there are several opportunities to win blog candy!....four random commenters will get a chance to receive one of the three individual images or Ann's sentiment set......So be sure to leave us all some love,also if you post the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's sidebar,you can enter into the grand prize draw....which will consist of the entire digi set made just for this cause as well as a gift certificate donated by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs worth $10 to use at the WHIMSY STAMPS store...GRAB THE "HELP JAPAN" BUTTON FROM MY SIDEBAR......and then get your name on the Inlinkz on CRISSY'S post so we can be sure to find the winner. Now on to my card.....i've gone with Crissy Armstrong's "Heartfelt Angel" coloured with Copic markers and Prisma's and alittle glamour dust...isn't she gorgeous,another stunning image from Crissy.I've also added glossy accents to the heart bubbles,not showing up very good in the photo. The red and whit colour scheme i went for was decided by the colours of the Japan flag...the glittered cardstock is DCWV "Citrus stack" and the pattern reminds me of Japanese lanterns. The sentiment is also WHIMSY STAMPS from the "Tickets Sentiments" set by Raindrop Echo Designs. Everything as been edged with Old Paper Distress Ink and the large pearls are from stash. Well that's about it from me....next you'll want to visit TINA'S BLOG to continue on the hop. Thank you so much for stopping by,and for your support of this very worthy cause. ENJOY THE HOP Take care
