Jorunn’s WoJ Challenge ~ A First Aid Kit

Happy Tuesday Everyone! My week is off to a rocky start. Yesterday I spent half the day without electricity and could post my Stamp & Create card. (It is the post below and featured a really cute bear) Then, I had mistakenly thought this challenge was scheduled for the 9th! Oops. I felt pretty sheepish for the confusion. I think I need more sleep.

Jorunn had the brilliant idea to create a First Aid kit for our little WoJ challenge. She has a marvelous tutorial for you to follow. You can find it  -->here<--  at the WoJ Inspiration and Tutorial Blog.

With Summer beginning and 3 active boys, this was just the project that I needed to do. I didn’t create anything too fancy because I know it will be carted around with me in my summer knapsack. I came up with my own little folded card. I had fun creating it and have ideas for different uses.

I used this sweet Norma Fickel gnome for the front. Just because we as Mummies know that most often the magical  cuddle and kiss is what makes our little ones feel better! I have just a few items tucked into the pocket:

  • sterile gauze
  • band-aids (my little guy LOVES these)
  • antiseptic towlettes
  • Polysporin (medicated ointment)

My dear friends Claudia, Inge & Jorunn have their “first-aid” creations posted on their blogs. I invite you to go and have a wee look! They are all lovely.

Jorunn also has a Challenge for you:

Make your own First Aid Kit, using Whiff of You image(s) and link to you card -->HERE<-- And she will select a winner on Monday June 14th, amongst all the entries...

The winner will receive this adorable stamp"Little Nurse" which is generously sponsored by Katharina Frei.


Also…did you see that Katharian is having a Christmas in Summer sale? Think about it. Remember last year? How you were trying frantically to make enough cards for all your friends? Do yourself a favour. Start now! Just click on this banner! LOL!

That is it for me. I have a TON of new cards to show you in the next few days so stay tuned (this is why I am so sleep-deprived)

That is a brilliant idea Jeanette. Love the card/holder you have designed and love the image you've used. Lets hope you don't really have to use its contents (but I suppose with 3 boys!!!) x
