Whipper Snapper New Release!

It's another big day in Whipper Snapper World, as Anna Wight has designed two more amazing cling-mount stamp sets, and they're available today! Anna has captured the cuteness factor again with the fabulous new stamp sets, and you'll find that they both go quite well with the two new releases from last month! I'm just thrilled to death to get to spend another month showing you some samples from these great stamp sets, so I'll stop chatting and get down to business!

For my first card, I had quite an Aha! moment when I thought of my design. Remember last month, I made this card using the bird from Anna's Beautiful Day stamp set? Well, while I was cutting out the stamps for the new set, called Celebrate Nature, I noticed there was a little baby bird that closely matched the bird from Beautiful Day! And I thought about a baby bird following the mama bird, but then the wheels in my mind kept turning and I thought about a whole line of baby birds following the mama bird! You know where I'm going here, right? Who remembers The Patridge Family???

Sing it with me..... "C'mon Get Happy!" I just couldn't resist! Now yes, my little flock of "patridges" are going the opposite way, but that's OK... it's my version! It will never cease to bother me though, why they didn't balance the colors of those "Patridges" out a little better? The littlest bird is yellow, just like the mama! There needs to be some green or orange in that line-up, don't you think? ;)
Anna's got another great set too, called Woodland Critters, and are they CUTE! Here I've used the squirrel and perched him atop the tree stump from the set and gave him a balloon! The sentiment is also from the set, and I used new October Afternoon papers for my card.

The other Featured Designers for this month have some great creations for you to see today using the new sets, too! Be sure to pay them a visit, then head on over to the Whipper Snapper store and get your sets of stamps!

Hope you're ready to start a great week! I have the day off today, and have many things on my agenda to accomplish, so I'd better not waste any daylight! Have a good one!

Love that Happy Hello card -- or should I say C'mon Get Happy card? Your little row of birds is much cuter than the original :)
