Whiff of Joy Cards & Challenges


This first card is one I made for the Our Creative Corner Challenge. This week the challenge is a fabulous sketch. I used my WOJ Confirmand Melinda but I colored her a deep rose that matched some scrap DP that I had in my drawer. The background behind her was created by stamping some Very Vanilla cardstock with the "En Francais" stamp that I just got from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is also from WOJ and I stamped it and then cut it out using one of my Spellbinders' Ribbons Tags. The ribbon is my May Arts and I picked it up at a little shop near Montreal. My image is colored with Copic Markers on Neehah Solar Crest paper.

This next little project is a little tea-bag gift holder. I saw the link for this Double Dutch Challenge at Marlene's blog. She always has the greatest little projects and her creations are always stunning.


Again, this was easily made with paper from my scrap drawer. The instructions are right there at the DD challenge and as you can see in this second photo, you can tuck a teabag into each little pocket. How cute is that? Such a great idea and so handy to have some made and put aside as a little gift for someone. I have put in some Spiced Chai Tea ....so yummy. This WOJ image is called Willow with Hot Chocolate but in this case...she has a nice cuppa chai tea. The image is colored with Distress Inks.




That is it for me today....I have mountains of folded laundry that need to be put away.....see you tomorrow for Sketch Saturday!
