Good Morning everyone and welcome to my post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week the challenge is called Make It Digital, so we would like to see your digital creations. You could use a digi stamp, digi papers, digi colouring and so on.

Whimsy Stamps New Release - Halloween Witchy Girl

Good evening. Apologies I am late with my new release post for Whimsy Stamps today. I am really suffering with a bad back, shoulder and neck at the minute and every little movement hurts. My back is the worst though and being bent over to craft and colour takes its toll after a while, so I can only do little bits at a time. I think my cards might have to be on the simpler side for a while until this heals!
