Another Double Challenge Friday!

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 007

Happy Friday! I am happy to tell you that the temperature has been steadily climbing and we should be at 22 C by Saturday. Crazy weather! Image going from snow to this in 4 days!

This week at Friday Sketchers, it was Claudia’s turn to provide us with a sketch and it is super fun to work with! Just to let you know that we are celebrating our 2nd Birthday over at Friday Sketchers and we will be having a special birthday blog bash next week…….complete with some surprises! I hope you will be able to  join us!

Heidi received this in her Spring Kit and very kindly stamped this and a few others for me. I think her Fairytale order is in so you won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on this one! She will be sending the stamp my way too but sent me this in advance! She knows me all too well! Patience is something I struggle with……….especially when it comes to Magnolia stamps! I think this is probably now my favorite Tilda of all time and I loved coloring her up! Then sketch was just perfect to create an elegant card and really show-case this gorgeous image. I added some stickles around the edge of the cardstock, her head-piece and on the ground underneath and the sliders were some that I got from my friend Jacqueline’s store ->here<-

  • Stamps: Magnolia Fairytale Collection: Lady Tilda soon available at The Stamp Shoppe for Canadians
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Papertrey Lavender Moon, SU Whisper White, DP is from stash
  • Coloring: Copic Markers, Stickles
  • Embellies: Papertrey Ribbon, Sliders from Cute Card’s & Stamps

Be sure to check out all the samples that my fellow DT sisters have created for your inspiration.  We hope  you will be able to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog . Our sponsor this week is Sew Many Cards.

I also have my card for this week’s Wags ‘n Whiskers challenge to show you. It was my turn to pick a theme and I picked “April Showers bring May flowers”. So I want to see flowers on your project. I picked this theme a while ago and it is pretty ironic that in actual fact it snowed all over my beautiful tulips and daffodils earlier this week!

I used the super cute “Let’s Go Team” stamp from our last release. OMGosh she is a true fan, isn’t she? My middle son (who likes to peruse my projects everyday) really loves this one. I asked him what he liked. Perhaps my coloring? The clever use of flowers as her pom-poms? Maybe the bright paper? No, he told me she looks “crazy excited” and she must be cheering for our hockey team: The Montreal Canadians (who are playing brilliantly at the moment). I just laughed and told him she would make a good girlfriend for him since that is how he looks when he is watching a hockey game! He thought that was gross………….at the moment, girls in general are gross. Except me, but apparently I am not even a girl. I am his “mother”! Sorry, I am babbling, but that is the general level of conversation that I have most of the time.

  • Stamps: Wags ‘n Whiskers: Let’s Go team available -->here<--
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Papertrey ribbon, Prima flowers (that have been somewhat mutilated because they were too big)

I want to let you know that all the Wags’ Crissy Armstrong designs are currently 25% off! WhooHoo! You can purchase them  -->here<--


since next week is our New Release,  this challenge will be open for 2 weeks. The DT will begin sneak peeks on Wednesday with a blog hop and release on Friday, May 7th! (I’ve seen the new images, I am working on them right now…..and they are fabulous!)

Please check the gorgeous cards that the Divas have created for your inspiration and I hope you will get the chance to join us and share your card on the Wags ‘s Whiskers Challenge blog!

Christina C. said...

Both cards are absolutely gorgeous, Jeanette. Tilda is absolutely stunning and I love the second whimsical cutie. Well done!!!!
Looking forward to the FS bloghop!

Lacey Stephens said...

These are both fantastic cards!! I love that magnolia (one day I will get those in the store). And your WnW is awesome! I LOVE the use of the flowers for the pompoms!! What a great idea!! Your son is funny! I love "crazy excited" that definately describes her. And so true that boys think girls are gross at this phase. Ryan (who is 5 1/2) asked me to marry him the other day! But I guess that's common for boys. He can melt my heart one moment...then drive me crazy the next!! LOL

Renkata said...

Leah the Orange said...

these are lovely, indeed! you must have liked the card my lovely friend Maria submitted for the WNW sponsored Spoon Full of Sugar challenge a few weeks ago. i saw your comment over there - the flower pompoms are so cute, aren't they? :) (thought i'd give her a little toot here, 'cuz i love the idea, too!)

Pinky said...

How cue, I saw this same idea a couple weeks ago on a friends blog! It looks cute on yours too!

Jeanette said...

Hey Leah,

I knew I had seen someone else use pom-poms on that image but couldn't for the life of me remember where! LOL! Thanks for giving Maria the toot she deserves. I always try to give recognition to those who inspire or help me!
Hugs Jeanette
