Henry's Party and My Best Friend



We are really lucky this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge, the fabulous Katharina from Whiff of Joy has designed a great sketch for us, so why not come and join us this week you know you want to lol. The DT have some fabulous cards to give you inspiration so just click Here to check out the sketch and see the DT cards.
There is only 5 days left to order the
Whiff of Joy Elizabeth Bell Spring Collection so if you haven't already pop over and place your order, all I can say is you really will not want to miss this fabulous collection of stamps as with all Elizabeths work they are stunning.


After that long preamble I will get down to writing about todays card, It is my birthday next month so I thought I would surprise the family by actually making invitation cards this year instead of just arranging our get together on the telephone, (not sure what we will be doing yet). I have used Whiff of Joy - Henry Party Mouse and coloured hin with Distress Inks & SU re-inkers. The fabulous party papers are from the DCWV Sweet Pad, the sentiment stamp is from Whiff of Joy- Part Animal Sentiment Collection designed by Katharina herself. I have used 2 Forever Friends stamps for the Cupcake and Present. The Ribbons are from the fabulous Poppicrafts.


The inside is decorated with more DCVW papers and I added little Henry under his Party Hat which has again been coloured as above. Of course I couldn't do a card without using my MSDP, the corner is a Sizzix Die

Stamp with Stampavie


Another sketch challenge for you on Stamp with Sarah Kay check out the blog for the sketch and to see the great cards created by my fellow DT members, just click Here and come and join us.


I realised I haven't used my older Sarah Kay stamps for quite some time so dug this little beauty out from the bottom of the Box. She has been coloured with Copics, I also noticed whilst checking my blog yesterday that I have been using an awful lot of pink these last few weeks, so for a change I have gone for blue for this card. The papers are from the very bottom of my scrap drawer and I am afraid I havn't the foggiest idea who they are made by. The scrummy lace was a RAK from the lovely Bev. The flowers and pearls are all from stash. The swirls are stamps by Stempleglede.


Once again I have decorated the inside of the card The Lovely Rose and Sentiment stamp are also from Stempleglede



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
