Whiff Of Joy Challenge



Well it has been such a long time since I entered the Whiff of Joy Challenge, but I have got some of last years stamps from them that I just adore, 'Charlie and the Snowman' being one of them! I really enjoyed working with the sketch and I have coloured Charlie with copics but I have done the background with prismas. Hopefully you can see I have glittered the snow on the ground.

The papers I have used for this card are MME 'The Merry Days of Christmas' and I have distressed most of the edges. The stars are plain wooden stars you can buy at Quixotic Paperie which are so much fun to alter. I have painted them with 'Picket Fence' Crackle paint and then once dry I have painted with Shimmerz Blingz. Excuse my squint metal sentiment....funny hoe you only notice these things once the photo is uploaded!

I am quite happy to be posting this in the evening when it is dark outside..why ..??? An early birthday present arrived for me today and being impatient I opened the box and used it! I'm sure you can guess I have got a light tent!! I was getting disappointed in the quality of my photos during these dark, dreary days and I am very pleased with the result now!

Well what have you got planned for the weekend?? We are off to a children's birthday party in the morning and then a fireworks display in the evening and on Sunday after church we are out to friends for lunch! Should be fun!
Have a fabulous weekend!
