On the Fifth Day of Christmas...

"On the fifth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Five Golden Rings
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree"


If you've come from Stacey's blog singing about the Fourth Day of Christmas, then you're on the right track. If not, start at the beginning of the song at Bev's blog to make sure you haven't missed anyone!

Whimsy Stamps, with it's new upgraded Shopping Cart, has another exciting release to bring you! We're celebrating the new release of four stamps designed by the talented Crissy Armstrong. We're very lucky to have her on board Whimsy and we're sure that you will love her wonderful images.

Stamp: Whimsy Purrr-fect Gift; Ink: Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black; Paper: Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, embossing folder, Prima pearls, ribbon

For this card, I've used the sketch from High Hopes Stamp Challenge (Sketch by Lacey). I'm also entering this card into a few other challenges: Stamp Something (1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 embellishments), Stampin' B's (Christmas Card), One Stop Craft Challenge (Cards for Kids), and Cupcake Craft Challenge (Snow Much Fun - cardstock was embossed with a snowflake folder).

It's time to sing the next verse! Head over to Debbie's blog to see her wonderful creation!
