Friday Sketchers and Wags’nWhiskers Challenges

Happy Friday! I am sooo happy that the week-end is almost here! My eldest son is in his first year of middle school and had mid-terms this week. This is all new to us and he has been only going in for half days all week. What!!! Well, my time during the day got a whole lot shorter since I need to be at the school at 11:30 to pick him up! I am sure he is going to be relieved tomorrow….so many tests to study for.

This week it is my turn to host the Friday Sketchers Challenge. I am sooo happy to let you know that our sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy Stamps! Yippee! So I really hope that you will get the chance to play along with us! I always LOVE to see how YOU interpret my sketch!

Here is my card featuring one of the newly released Whiff of Joy stamps: Nora blowing Kisses!

I used two more of the gorgeous new dies that were released this month as well!  I love how the heart shape echoes her heart-kisses!

Here are the links to what I used:

 

Be sure to check out all the samples that my fellow DT sisters have created for your inspiration.

The second card that I have to share with you today is for the Wags’nWhiskers Challenge! Today the lovely Fairy images will be available to order ~here~ as digi images….and that means instant gratification as well! No waiting for shipping!

My card features one of my favorite Wags images: Say a Prayer. I have used this image for Christmas cards, Baby Cards, Birthday and Thinking of You cards.

The Double Dutch Challenge this week was to create a card that was totally white except for the image. I really {heart} this elegant look. I embossed a 5.25” square of white card stock and then sewed it onto my white card base. I made a few flowers using a Spellbinders flower die and then added a beautiful piece of May Arts silk ribbon….tied with my Bow-Easy of course!

Whew! That was a long post! Thanks for sticking with me and have a great day!
