Whiff of Joy and Wags'nWhiskers


Whiff of Joy Challenge

We are back again after our Christmas Break, thank you everyone who took time out in their busy time to join us in our last challenge hope you join us again this week because we have a fabulous challenge for you, its a colour combo for you RED and AQUA yummy. Please pop over and see the fantastic cards from my fellow DT members and to learn more about the challenge.



I know Bev uses these colours together a lot and I always admire the cards she creates with them, but it is not a colour scheme I use myself, but I will from now on I really loved making this card (not often you hear me say that). I do not have any Aqua and Red papers so I had to use red card, which was punched with MS deep edge punch. What a useful stamp this is going to be, I can think of lots of uses for it, although it is called Willow writing recipes, she could also be writing her diary or just reading (now thats versatile!). Anyway enough eulogising (big word), the image has been coloured with Distress Inks.



The fabulous flowers are again from Wild Orchid craft and the bling flourish is by Prima the ribbon is another reel of Christmas Wrapping ribbon from M&S.




Wags'n Whiskers Challenge

The return of another Challenge now, we are asking you to make a valentines card this time but there is a catch NO RED, please click Here to find out more and see the fabulous cards created by the WnW Divas, you will also find a link there to enable you to purchase these fabulous stamps.



Another Easel Card from me (sorry), using the fabulous "He Loves Me" image, again it has been coloured with Distress Inks (ohhhh I cannot wait for the new colours I am getting so impatient).



The Heart and Heart tag images are both from Magnolia and have also been coloured with DI and have been sprinkled with Glimmer Mist, the Sentiment if from Penny Black.



The flowers are again from Wild Orchid Crafts, the papers are Basic Grey don't know what pad as the cover is missing!!!, and of course its a valentines card so MS Heart Punch had to come out again.

We are under a blanket of snow in the UK, although in my little corner of Kent we don't have that much, so I would just like to say if you are going out please be careful and make sure you wrap up warm (sorry cannot stop being a Mum!!!!).

Thanks for looking
Hugs

Pinning a few of your gorgeous cards on to Pinterest today Jacqui. You really have such a magical touch with paper, colour combo and stunning colouring skills. So missing your cards. Hope you're well and life is being kind. I've been hunting down this gorgeous Willow writing recipes stamp for years, so if you ever think you could part with it, let me know! I'd gladly buy it from you. Hope instead you come back with some gorgeous makes using her though. Love and hugs, Wends x
