Two for You

Whiff of Joy Challenge

Our challenge this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge is

Stars and Stripes

Love this one, we are offering a GDT place to the winner, so hope to see lots of entries this week. Pop over to see the awesome cards from my fellow DT members if you need some inspiration.

I thought it was time this sweet Oakley stamp from Whiff of Joy saw the light of day again, I am sure we are all the same so much rubba so little time to use it all. This challenge came at the right time, I had just visited Nitwit Collections Downloads and bought a couple of new packs and amongst the papers were these two striped pages, so my colour scheme was decided for me. Not a flower in sight on this card wow that was hard, so had to make up with little bit of glamour dust.

I do love the earthy colours of this paper.

A lovely sketch this week from Nette, don't forget to come and join us again this week, to see the sketch and the fab DT cards just click

Another couple of stamps that havn't been used for ages, these love Mimosa Stamps from Bildmalarna are a joy to colour and I just love their cute faces. Well my this is the first try at a home made flower I used the large retro flower punch and just snipped all around the petal edges and ruffled them up, not very adventurous but I quite like them. I am dying to try the lovely flowers Rach made this week but will have to wait until I go into Canterbury to get a stapler before I can have a go.

I have used another of the cute stamps inside.
