Whiff of Joy Challenge - Sketch by Heather
Welcome back to Whiff of Joy Challenge. Our first challenge for 2009 is a lovely sketch by our own clever Heather.
We have a very special prize for the winner this week we have one of the new Whiff of Joy releases for you as a prize. The very generous Tab from 7 Kids College Fund has generously donated the Whiff of Joy Mouse under the hat stamp designed by Alison Acton.

I have been wondering why I wasn't quite happy with this card, it has just come to me I don't like the brad in the corner by the Shamrock leaves, it is too close, but I cannot do anything about it now, I hate not being happy with my cards!!!. Anyway to get on this is the first time I have inked up the Whiff of Joy - Good Luck Charlie, don't know why it took me so long, he is so easy to colour and such a fun image. He has been coloured with Copics and I have added the matching WOJ sentiment. The papers are Basic Grey, and the edge has been punched with MSDP. I have stamped the WOJ Shamrock Accessory stamp a number of times then coloured with copics and cut out. The brads are from Poppicrafts.
A closer view of this little cheeky Charlie
For the inside of the card, I stamped and coloured another Good Luck Charlie and punched him with a fiskars scalloped punch, then matted hin on two labels cut with Nesties, and punched the edges with MSDP again. The sentiment is computer generated and I have stamped cut and coloured another couple of Shamrocks.
Stamping with Stampavie
We have another fabulous Sketch on Stamping with Stampavie for you this week, you will really enjoy this one. If you would like to come and join us and also see my Fellow DTs fantastic cards just click HEREThis sketch looked really daunting when I first saw it but I can honestly say I really enjoyed working with it and am so pleased with the results. Although I must apologise I have smudged the frill on her dress and I didn't notice until I had made up the card. I have gone back to my favourite Distress Inks for this sweet stamp, I think they are great for Sarah Kays images. The papers are all Basic Grey and I think they are scrumptious. The ovals have been cut with Oval Nesties and the two hearts are cut with a Sizzix Original Die. The rest is from stash.
I have carried the paper onto the inside, and have used Stempelglede Grunge Retro stamps on the message card, I have left this blank until I know what I will use this card for.
Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a great day, and hope it is not too cold where you are. I am freezing Brrrrrrrr!!!!
