Friend ~ A Whiff of Joy Challenge

Whiff Of Joy - Page 082 (1)

Hi Everyone! Yesterday was Victoria Day in Canada which is a holiday. It was sunny but pretty cold and I was determined to finish washing the rest of the windows in the house. My hubbie was working in the backyard and the kids were running around trying to be helpful. Now many of you don’t know that I am a klutz. So long story short, I stumbled on the bottom step, smashed my foot and BROKE MY LITTLE TOE! Who knew that it could hurt so much? So there is nothing that can be done except to wait for it to heal and admire the lovely shades of purple bruises! And no, the kids weren’t even around…..I stumbled all by myself…at least I had finished all the windows!

I have another of the new WOJ Summer Kit images to show you today. Once again, Elisabeth Bell has captured such a sweet expression! Don’t worry if you didn’t get the kit. They will be available as individual stamps starting May 24th. I made this card for the Whiff of Joy challenge. The theme this week is Friendship.

I made a different kind of card today. This style of card I saw on my friend Claudia’s blog a long time ago. You can find her tutorial on how to do it here.

As you can see, you can pull out the sentiment part of the card. I have used a SU sentiment and stamped it in Baja breeze ink. I then airbrushed the center with E51 and around the edges with BG75 which is a pretty close match to the ink.
