A Challenge, A DT and A Reminder


Whiff of Joy Challenge

Jane has designed a great sketch for you to use this week, a bit more challenging than usual but great fun to use. Remember the only rule on Whiff of Joy Challenge is you have to use a Whiff of Joy image on your card, looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Remember the store kit is now available in a store near you.

030Are you ready to Party!!!!! Willow certainly is. I have used Distress Inks to colour Willow;

Flesh- Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick, Dress – Victorian Velvet, Frayed Burlap, Hair – Tea Dye.

The Papers are Papermania - Honey and Hugs (Thanks Marianne), and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Bad photo again, I think I may have to get a tripod.


018aWhiff of Joy DT Card

My gorgeous Norma Fickle Gnome Stamps DT package arrived yesterday from Katharina at Whiff of Joy, I just fell in love with them and had to quickly ink them up and colour them all, this is the first of the cards I made.


Say hello to Mr & Mrs Foxglove what a charming couple they are, and you will soon be able to have them to play with yourselves, just pop over to the Whiff of Joy website to find out more, and don’t forget to visit the gallery while you are there to see what delicious cards my fellow DT Members have made with these gorgeous little Gnomes.

The Distress Inks I used to colour Mr & Mrs Foxglove are:

Face & Hands – Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Tea Dye, Hair Wild Honey, Clothes – Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage.

The Larger Mauve flowers are Cherry Blossom which I have pinched up tight hoping they look a bit like Tulips and are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Papers are the New Basic Grey Kioshi Pad from Bunny Zoes Crafts, Ohhhh there are some delish papers in this pad.

019Now for the Reminder

017 Lili of the Valley Cute Kitties are released today so don’t forget to get over and order yours they will not be in stock for long if they take after the recent Lili of the Valley Releases . An don’t forget to pop over to the Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog where we are asking you to make an easel card, it is not necessary to use a LOTV image to join us.

Sorry this was such a long one today but had lots of news for you, now I have a question I know there is a challenge blog just for Bears but I cannot remember what it is called can anyone let me have the link
