Whimsy Day 4 May Release

Win my Die Candy HERE
******************************************

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of our May Rubber Stamp & Die Release Showcase



On Wednesday (23 May) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs and new Shapeology dies. From then until 29 May the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop! 

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have24hrs to enter each prize draw. To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on 30 May. To take a peek at today's fabulous new release creations, stop in to the Whimsy Inspiration Blog here
 Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop back to the Whimsy blog tomorrow for more new release creations! 

Today my creation is made with the New Shape EZ Dad's Tie template and a stamp from Elizabeth Bell and they go together so well!   The Tim Holtz Paper was a perfect match for this awesome canvas print I found at Hobby Lobby.  I've had this braided trim forever now and decided it was perfect to close off those rough edges of the canvas.  This Dad's Tie PDF template will not print this large but if you can cut with the SVG, you too can adjust the size to fit your favorite stamp.  I've crimped the banner and wrapped it in chord for an extra textured look.  Truly, this is Paradise!

Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it. 
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
