Nearly Christmas!

There are now only 9 days till Christmas (eepppp!!!) so I thought I would share another Christmas card I made featuring one of the cuties from Saturated Canary (Bizzy Bec's now has an amazing range of these gorgoeus stamps!). I have coloured her with copics and added lots of glitter to the edges of her coat, hat and boots. My sentiment is a free one from Bizzy Becs and my circles and ovals were cut out with spellbinders dies. My corner die is by Cheery Lynn. All my flowers, buds and holly leaves are from Hooked On Craft and I spritzed them with glimmer mist.

Message from Whimsy Stamps

Hi everyone, here is a messge from Whimsy Stamps:

"To Our Valued Customers and Friends:

Over the past week some of you may have noticed intermittent problems with our website resulting in loss of carts, log in problems, and security errors. We apologize for any frustration this may have caused.

During our attempts to diagnose and correct the issues, we have discovered some problems with our current hosting provider and their servers. In an effort to serve our customers better, we have made the decision to switch providers and move our shop to new servers.

This change/move will require our site to be shut down for a number of hours this weekend. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This change will also result in a delay of our regularly scheduled monthly digital release. But as soon as we are back up and running as normal we will release all the fabulous new images...including those from our brand new digital artist Marika Collins!

Our goal is to provide our customers with the best quality of service possible. We thank you for your patience at this time. We will make every effort to have this transition go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued support of Whimsy Stamps and our artists!"
