Whiff of Joy Challenges

Some of you might have already seen in my sidebar but I am super excited to be joining the talented DT at Whiff of Joy Challenges!!

This week saw another stunning challenge go up - #118 Pins and Lace, pop on over and see the gorgeous inspiration from the DT. Here is my card, I used WOJ Christmas Accessories.

I am a bit dissappointed with the photo because its so much prettier in real life, the weather here hasn't played nice with my photography The papers are Lost & Found Christmas, Wild Orchid flowers, think the pins are Maya Road, lace from my stash and finished it of with lots of stickles!!!

Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments!!

I am back with awsome blog candy, you are really going to love this one!!

Have you seen Whiff of Joys 2011 Heartfelt Christmas Winter Stamp kit, the illustrator is Elisabeth Bell? If you missed out on pre-ordering the kit, the stamps are now available individually but I recieved two of these kits! So Katharina of Whiff of Joy has kindly donated the extra stamp kit and you can win it!!! The whole kit includes 16 stamps and it is stunning, here are the images and sentiments!!!

I would love it if you spread the word about this awsome WOJ blog candy and all you need to do is add your name below. This is open to everyone and I would be thrilled if you became a follower!

Lime Tart Gallery

My Christmas Blog Candy - click here.

I can't believe its almost December, if my head wasn't attached to my body I think I would loose it at the moment..........LOL. Today I rushed off to pick the kids up from school to get them to their optomerist appointment to discover its next week Friday........LOL.

Oh well, at least I won't forget :) This week Lime Tart gallery went up and another fantastic month of inspiration, so pop on over here. I got to play with the Half Tart, it sold out quickly again but if you looking for one, pop on over here because I have some Christmas Blog Candy :) :)

For this LO I used the die cut in the kit as a mask and sprayed some glimmermist, love the subtle effect.

This is my new Whiff of Joy Banner die - love it!!!

And two christmas cards, both coloured with Copics.

I will be back soon with some AWSOME blog candy, yes another one but you will love it :)

Thanks for popping in and for your lovely comments, hope you all have a fab weekend!

Showers of Love

I am back with another card today, I finished it a few days ago but I have been sick this week, so glad to say I am feeling a bit better today!!! I used the gorgeous new stamp from the kit, this sweet boy - Christmas Treasure. You can now purchase the stamps individually.

But I made a birthday card for my little boy who will be turning 7. There is a bit of christmas holly on the present but I thought I could get away with it because he is a December baby!

I based my card on Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenges - Sketch #10 - Kathrin's sketch.

I love the new kit so I will be back with some more and thank you for popping in and for your lovely comments!!!

WOJ Christmas

If you looking for my Christmas Blog Candy, you can find it here.

I am back with another gorgeous new stamp from Whiff of Joy, this little cutie is Henry the Mouse - Dancing with the Gingerbread Man.

I coloured Henry with Copics and and added some stickles to his christmas hat for some sparkle :) I decided to use lots of red to get me into the christmas spirit - love these christmas papers. And a close up of Henry.

Sorry I have been a bit quiet but had internet issues - AGAIN but they seem to be fixed - YAY!!!! But I hurt my hand yesterday, nothing is broken just badly bruised and thank goodness its my left hand so I will be back with some more WOJ cuties soon!!!

Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments!
