The Sketchy Challenges #57

Its time for another sketch and this sketch is by the lovely Sandy, you can see it here.

This cutie is WOJ's 'You Colour My World' and its a free digi, you can get it here!

I am being very good and have been going through my supplies and trying to use them up instead of cutting into full sheets of papers. And I am actually enjoying it, finding all sorts of treasures, so I guess I am doing some spring cleaning to! So this card has been created from all sorts of goodies from my stash and the image has been coloured with Copics.

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments!

WOJ Blog Hop!

Welcome to the September Whiff of Joy Blog Hop! If you didn’t come here from KARINA'S blog, then head on over to the start of the hop at Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog. I don’t want you to miss a single stop on this hop!

This month, Whiff of Joy is releasing special holiday images that will be perfect for your Christmas cards, albums and decorations. Once again, we have paired up some very sweet sentiments with the images so that you will have the perfect saying to go along with your creation. You LOVE our die-lights and we think that you will be blown away with our newest ones and we are continuing to add to our line of nested die-lights with two more sets! We also have some English & German School themed sentiments and two German Christmas themed sentiment sets!

This month, we will be giving one stamp and one die-light from our new release to one very lucky winner. The winner will be drawn from the comments on our DT blogs.  At the end of the hop, go back to the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog, let us know that you have left a comment at each stop of the hop by using the inlinkz tool and you will be entered for a chance to win! A complete list of the hop is also at this blog, just in case you get lost along the way!

The hop will remain open until  midnight Monday September 30th CEST. Winners will be announced on the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog.

I have used the gorgeous new stamp 'Wonderful Christmas' and coloured it with Copics in shades of grey.

The papers are Authentique 'Journey', flowers are Prima and Wild Orchid, the little die cut snowflake is WOJ's Die-Light 'Snowflakes Festoon' and I simply cut a snowflake off and used it in my cluster of embellies. For the finishing touch I added some stickles and pearls.

And this cutie is WOJ's Die-Light 'Pillow Box' and I finished it off with a mini tag and flower. The sentiment is WOJ's 'Christmas Banners'.

Thank you for joining us, your next stop is VICKY'S blog.

WOJ Digi Release Day!

They are now available, have a look here!

This is one of the new digi's 'Eat Cake', so cute and the colouring in of all this birthday cake has definitely made me hungry for cake.

The sentiment is WOJ 'Festive Occasions', the doily is WOJ 'Elegant Doily', flowers are Prima, patterned papers MME 'Find Your Wings and Fly' and finished off with a MME brad and Kaisercraft pearls.

I have an amazing collection of WOJ Die- lights but I am pretty naughty when I come to crafting, I will be so into it and then afterwards I am like 'ooohh that Die-light would have been perfect?!?'. So I have solved this mini problem of mine and created a new system for my Die-lights where they are in full view and easily accessible, I will share some pics soon, when I have cleaned my desk ;)

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

'Your Special Day' - WOJ Digi Release

This cutie is WOJ 'Your Special Day' and is another digi that will be available on the 9th September. This particular kit was perfect for birthday celebrations and had so many cute birthday images!

I created a birthday tag for a gift, for a special friend of mine.

Lots of layers and pretty bright papers from my stash and finished off with some flowers, lace, twine and mini tag.

Some of you might be wondering why my blog has been so quiet, a few weeks ago I broke my ankle playing a game of netball. Unfortunately I had some troubles and ended up on two weeks complete bed rest! It has been a difficult few weeks and I am normally very active and have missed my sport and crafting. I am still 'hobbling' along but I am hoping the worst is over and I am on the road to recovery!

I will be back with some more crafty goodness very soon, thanks for stopping by!
