Fall Friends and Aww Shucks
Whiff of Joy Challenge
For this week's challenge!!! We want you to use BLING on your project!!! There is so many different Blings out there nowadays and they are just so gorgeous. So sure hope you will join us this week, just remember there is only 1 rule!!! You must use a Whiff of Joy stamp.
We will have one winner this week picked by the Random Generator for a Whiff of Joy stamp sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, will be back later with a picture of the stamp.
Thanks to our Guest designer this Month Vicky I am sure you will agree she has produced some fab cards for us during her stint as GDT.
Another beautiful Willow from the Fall Collection from Whiff of Joy by Elizabeth Bell, well I have gone for the dreaded YELLOW again with this one, I have decided to challenge myself each week and use colours that usually bring me out in a hot sweat. The distress inks used to colour Willow are Dried Marigold, Black Soot, Frayed Burlap, Shabby Shutters, Tea Dye and Tattered Rose. I have distressed the edge of the image with Dried Marigold. I didn't have much bling but after searching through my drawers and stash I found these Prima gems. I am quite pleased with how this turned out.

Inky Impressions Challenge
We have a lovely sketch for you to follow this week on Inky Impressions Challenge designed by our very own Tonya hope you can come and join us we would love to see your fabby creations using these fabulous stamps.
I just adore the eyes on these fabulous stamps, this one is Lilis Secret, but I thought it was a great expression to say Sorry I forgot, I took a break from Distress Inks today and used Copics to colour Lili (colours below), I stamped her twice and 3d the head and Jumper over the base image. More downloaded papers for this one, I was sent some card and paper by Photo Paper Direct to try and have used their prescored Birthday Card for this one I am really pleased with the results I got, and will certainly order more, they have some great magnetic and photo papers at really reasonable prices so give them a visit.
These are the Copics I used to Colour Sweet little Lili to see more of these delicious stamps just click Here
