Saturday Spotlight - Do The Mess Around

It's time for another Saturday Spotlight Challenge ... are you ready??  Today we are being "messy" ... with our creation that is ... by use tearing, distressing, wrinkled edges, etc. 

I had so much fun with this Whimsy image and he reminded me so much of the little "Dude" turtle in the movie "Nemo", I just had to hand write my own sentiment and use the word Dude!!  My messiness (is that a word??) is in the form of tearing & distressing. 

Speaking of Whimsy Stamps, for our Spotlight sponsor this week we have Denise from Whimsy Stamps.

One Lucky winner from Mr Linky this week will be randomly chosen to win $15 gift Certificate to be used at the Whimsy Stamps store....You could even use it for purchasing an image from their new Mythical Fairies and sentiment release on Feb 17 (4 fairies and new sentiments)! !

Whimsy currently has 5 different collections of stamps; The Crissy Armstrong Collection for Whimsy Stamps, the Animals Collection and Mythical Fairies designed by Katie Sowa, the Kids Collection designed by Whimsy Design Studio, and the Sentiments Collection designed by Raindrop Echo Designs and Whimsy Design Studio.
