Wowza Wednesday with Whimsie Doodles

Try and say that three times in a row while eating a peanut butter sandwich. LOL!
Hi everyone and a happy Wednesday to you all.
As promised, I have had these cards made for different postings but due to unforeseen circumstances (meaning: unorganized), I decided to show all these cards today made with Whimsie Doodles latest release called Have A Seat.

First up, I combined the single chair, lamp, side table and iced tea set to make a little welcome card for a new neighbor:

Being in the military, we meet a whole lot of new people as we move every few years. For some that seems a bit overwhelming (personally, it seemed absurd before marrying DH!), but I have become quite fond of living in different states and making new friends. Now the packing part is not the most fun part of it all, it's a good thing that we have professional movers who do it for us. Otherwise I'd do something doofy like trying to pack a chair in a box like in my card. ;)

Here is another image from the set and the same side table:

Ever set your heart on something even if it doesn't work? I was determined to use this awesome piece of tweed DP for this chair. It was a bit tricky since the DP is a bit dark but I was stubborn and fought through it. I added the copper brads to mimic real overstuffed chairs.
I thought it looked quite masculine so I added that yummy dark chocolate ribbon and a copper hardware. Here is a side peek of the chair and a little on the inside of the card:
And finally, thank you for always being by my side. No no no, not you, I mean the sentiment:
haha! Of course I meant you too...:D
This is a cute little sentiment that is included, along with the feline on the right. I flipped the kitty image and made it a wee bit smaller so they could snuggle up together. The entire card was cut out of thinner white cardstock and a nestie, I added the spiral clip and a little heart charm for embellishments.
The Have a Seat set is available now! You can find more adorable inspiration by the other Doodlelicious girls HERE on the Whimsie blog. Thank you for always being by my side! teehee!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, tomorrow is trash day! woot woot!
*Love and Aloha*
