DD Gallery Opening and Whimsie Doodles Release Day!!

It is the 15th of the month and besides it being payday (yeah!!) it is also the day that the
Splitcoaststamper's Dirty Dozen/Fan Club Gallery opens  

AND it is also a

New release day for Whimsie Doodles!!

I have been working like a fool because I am such a procrastinator who probably has a little touch of ADD as well!  I have just been swamped lately with deadlines and Christmas.  I am really happy that the Galllery projects got completed and uploaded even if it was just in the nick of time!  I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my chest.  Next month I am not going to wait too long to start my projects.  That is going to be one of my resolutions for 2010!  LOL!

To view the Fan Club Gallery at Splitcoaststampers, you can Click HERE.  But you have to be a Fan Club member to do so.  So if you aren't a Fan Club member, then click HERE to find out how you can become one!  The fee is minimal and gives you awesome advantages over the free membership!

The DD Gallery's theme this month is "Home for the Holidays" and it is filled with fabulous submissions from the current Dirty Dozen!!  You can also find out who the new Dirty Girls are if you head over there!!

Here is a snippet from one of my submissions!!

Now for Whimsie Doodles!!  It is another release day!! Woohoo!!  

I just love my WD stamps and look forward to playing with them as often as I can!  Today there are two new stamps available for puchase.  I am going to share only one of them with you now, and if all goes well, I will be back later to share another one with you this afternoon!

Here is the card that I created for one of the Whimsie Doodles releases today.  The digistamp is called Lush and from the looks of things, it is a very appropriate name!!

What do you think of that color combo?  It is olive green, navy and red!! After adding the red into the olives with Stickles, I decided to go with more red making it my accent color.  I think I like it, but I don't think I will have a lot of opportunity to use this combination again!  Just so you know, this is also the sample card that I made for the sketch challenge that will start tomorrow on the WD group at Paper Craft Planet.  So now you can get a little head start if you want to!  Wink!

Here is a closeup of the image. I colored the cute little lamb in with Copics, and kind of made her dirty like you sometimes see the wool being after the animals are roaming around on the farm.  The set that starts selling today comes with Lush in the martini glass and the sentiment too!

To purchase this Lush stamp, please visit the Whimsie Doodles stamp store and click on the Winter images tab.  Or click HERE to be taken directly there.

On this view I am trying to show you how I applied Diamond glaze to the martini glass to make it seem more realistic. It adds some depth and shine to the card as well!  The card stock used is Bazzill which I ran through the script embossing folder on my CB, and the DP is from K& Co.  The sentiment was printed out on white CS and both it and the mat were cut using oval nesties!

I hope you head on over to both the Fan Club Gallery at SCS and to the Whimsie Doodles store to grab this new image!! Have a great day and I hope to be back later with another creation from the other newly released WD digi!

Have a great Tuesday and may your bucket overflow with opportunities to enjoy the spirits  this holiday season!
