Catch Up


After spending all day yesterday in bed with my migraine I have lots of catching up to do today, its amazing how work stacks up isn’t it.

Today is another  Whiff of Joy Challenge  day and we have a fabulous sketch by Donalda to work with, this must be one of the best sketches I have used for ages, so thank you dear.


I love making cards for WOJ Challenge as it gives me a chance to use some of the older stamps, this one has always been a favourite.  She has been coloured with Copics, the Papers are from Bearly Mine Designs, so soft and vintage and they hace encouraged me to expand my colour palette.  The lovely roses are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts who are also the very generous sponsors of Whiff of Joy Challenge this week.


I was the lucky recipient of a set of the new Manga releases from  Wendy at Secret Crafter, they are awesome so unusual I have had fun using them thanks so much Wendy.  The Girls at Secret Crafters Challenge have made cards with a different image everyday this week so pop over and check them out.


This is Cat Girl from the new release, she is just Purrrrfect I had such fun with this one. 


I have again used copics to colour her, and the paper was laying on my desk from a card I made last week.Wild Orchid Roses and Cherry Blossom is used again.  Now come on who could not fall in love with those sexy eyes isn’t she fun.


and finally it is my turn to do a project for Whiff of Joy  Tutorial and Inspiration Blog, I have posted instructions on making this cute little Cold Cure Holder Card

010Looks pretty plain but open the flap and see what is inside 


if you would like to find out more and make your own card just pop over to the  Whiff of Joy  Tutorial and Inspiration Blog

Sorry it has been such a long read.  Hope to see you tomorrow

Good to have you back again!

Wow, Jacqui, the first card fullfills all my "favourites". I love the colour-combo, I love sketches, the colouring is great, the materials are perfect - I love this card!
The Manga-image is not to my taste, but the card is very pretty, too. The card with the guy is great because of the inside.

Nannieflash said...

Wow Jacqui, youve certainly caught up with yourself, I do so hope your migraine is gone, I suffer from them as well, but if I can catch them earlier enough when I get the aura I can afford the headache, not the disturbed vision though.
Fabulous and beautiful cards I think your talent is overflowing at the moment they are all stunning. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
