WHIFF OF JOY CHALLENGE /QUICK CARDS

What a beautiful morning it is, the sun is shining and it is a typical crisp day! I have just been to Jasmines harvest festival assembly, which was very entertaining. I am now home, making a cup of coffee and sitting down to craft. These cards I made last night, when I couldn't sleep. This cough is playing havoc with my sleeping pattern. Last day at school for Jasmine - horray!! I get to laze around tomorrow morning, hopefully extra time to craft.


WHIFF OF JOY CHALLENGE - SKETCH
What a beautiful sketch to work with this week, I actually got to use up loads of scrap bits of paper so thank you for that. I used this lovely whiff of joy image its one of my favourite christmas stamps. I am not sure what the papers are sorry! The flowers are the retro punch and the middle are filigree bell cap findings sent to me by my wonderful friend Jill. Ribbon from stash. I have coloured the images using the pro-markers, and glittered his wings with stickles.
A COUPLE OF QUICK CARDS
This is using the lovely Elzybels stamp, its one of my favourite christmas designs, isn't the teddy oh so cute? he has been coloured with pro-markers. The holly is a punch with crystal lacquer berries.

This was a ready made card from one of the Create and Craft Deals brought last year. I have used one of the gorgeous whiff of joy stamps as centre piece.
Hopefully will get a couple more challenges done today, and will post later this evening. Hope you have some sunshine wherever you are, happy crafting. Linda x

You have made some stunning cards, Linda! Oh, I love them all! It's strange how I alway crave the stamps I haven't got. I have a lot of the stamps from WoJ, but not the ones you have shown us here. So maybe I just have to pay the shop a visit :) Because they are so pretty, especially on you cards!!

Have a nice day, Linda.

Hugs, Kristin :)
