A New Challenge and An Award


Whilst trawling the blog I came across this fabulous Challenge it is on a blog called
Stampartic Online Magazine, the site is full of great tips and inspiration and interviews with some really talented cardmakers and stampers. Although it is a Scandanavian Blog they have kindly translated it into English. They run three challenges a month, this is the First for January, there will be another on the 10th and one on the 20th January, it is a fantastic Sketch, with a tutorial on a special fold card. Please pop over and see the fantastic work by the DT you will certainly not be disappointed.



I felt a bit cheeky joining this challenge as you know what wonderful work the Scandanavian girls produce, but nothing ventured nothing gained. Then the rest of my DT Stamps from Whiff of Joy popped through the letter box and that clinched it. Hope you like my effort.



I have used 3 of the new Whiff of Joy Party Animals Collection, which were relased on 3rd January. Henry Celebrating Mouse, Presents and the Cute Little Mouse under Party Hat. They have all been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's.



The papers are Imaginise and are already glittered although this dosen't show very well in the photos. The small round sentiment is from SU, I cannot remember where I got the Large Circle Sentiment from, opps!!, the sentiment on the white card is from Whiff of Joy. The Swirls were cut with Home Accents cartridge on the Cricut, all the rest from stash.


I love the different ways this card can be viewed and I am sure I will be using this template again.


A FABULOUS AND SPECIAL AWARD


I have been given this fantastic award by my awesome, talented, kind hearted and special friend Bev, I am so honoured and touched to have received this from someone I admire so much especially as it can only be given to one person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart dear and one day I hope I will be up there with you and Rach!!!!!


"The award should be distributed with care.Everybody who's getting the award, should give it forward to only one person, whom you think he/she is doing great work. It doesn't matter if you like the creative style, or the coloration, or the imagination........Please link the person from whom you've got the award and the person you'll forward it.I wish you a lot of fun"

Now I need to try and pick just one person that inspires me and this is so hard!!! There are so many talented people out there that all deserve this award but as I can only pass this on to one special person I am going to pass it on to ......

Donalda

She is one of the most special people in Blog-land, not only do I admire her fabulous work and use her amazing sketches time after time, but she has the biggest heart and always gives encouragement and kind words to everyone she visits, she is a very dear and special friend. Enjoy dear xx



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
