Another Whiff of Joy ! :-)

I just made this card following Dulcie's fab sketch on the Wild Rose Studio Challenge :-)

I used two of my new Whiff of Joy images that I won on the Spread the love for Jaimie blog hop on this one :-) ( Sorry Dulcie ,,, I don't have any of yours yet x x ) I coloured the images with copics and 3D'd willow onto the sledge :-)
The papers are My Minds Eye christmas glitter papers that I bought at the craft fair in Holland last week ;-) The ribbon is Kaiser Craft and the large snowflake (which is extra to the sketch) ! is a spellbinders die cut. The smaller ones are made using a Papermania punch.

I added some dew drops and lots of stickles glitter :-) The sentiment is also from a WOJ Christmas sentiment set that I bought last Christmas and have only just opened the packet !!!! oohh I completely forgot all about them !!! All the edges distressed with faded denim distress inks.

A BIG thank you to Dulcie for asking me to be on her DT !! I am soo excited !! :-)

I am also entering this into the Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge whose theme is Brown and either pink or blue ,,:-) ,,, I am not a pink person ,, but LOVE blue :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one,,, then I know you popped by for a visit too :-)
A big thank you to Katharina, owner of the Whiff of Joy company for these lovely stamps and to Erin and Denise for organising the blog hop :-)x x

My WOJ candy card :-)

I was the lucky winner of the fabulous Whiff of Joy Christmas stamp set on the Spread the love for Jaimie blog hop :-) The stamps arrived yesterday and I just had to make a card and enter the WOJ Challenge who have a lovely sketch by Gio for us to follow :-) I did rotate the sketch and make an oval frame instead of rectangular ,,,, but I think it follows the sketch ok ??? Hope so ! :-)

Thank you so much for these lovely stamps Katharina, I love them all ! x x

It was really difficult to choose which fab stamp to use first ! ( I am not trying to rub it in ,,, honest lol !! ),, but in the end I chose the gorgeous Willow with Santa's Stocking isnt she lovely :-)
I coloured her with copics and 3D'd her onto plain white card :-) The frame was made using my Nellie Sneddon multi frame and some lovely doodlebug glittery card which I then threaded red organze ribbon through :-) The papers are Papermania Daisy and Dandelion Christmas Collection. I made the fancy border with a Fiskars Diamond edge border punch :-)

I added loads of stickles and the sentiment is another Punchem from Funky Fairys Papercrafts :-)

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-
Everybody's Art Challenge ,,,,,,,Christmas
