Whiff of Joy Challenge #15


Well, not only did I jump right to work on this week's challenge, but I had so much fun I did three cards!! Actually, I did three more cards, too, but they aren't for the challenge, so you'll just have to come back to see them ;-) .

Lizzie with a muff is one of my favorite images --- ok, so they're all my favorite images! Here I matched Lizzie with K&C double-sided DP, punched the border with Martha Stewart, cut the circles with Nesties in my Cuttlebug and "aged" them with Memories Sepia dye. The flowers are some I have in my stash and the sentiment is SU. Lizzie is colored with Copics. The inside sentiment is from JoAnn's.





This little Lizzie is just too adorable! She also colored with Copics and matched up with DP from K-ology. I used my new Nesties for the center pieces (I'm hooked on Nesties, too), Martha Stewart punch for the border, woven trim in blue and green stripe, and SU sentiment. The inside sentiment is from JoAnn's.




The third card is little Lizzie again, colored with Copics and matched up with Heidi Grace double-sided DP. The border is Martha Stewart punch and the centerpieces are cut with Nesties. The outside sentiment is SU and the inside, again is from JoAnn's.


I can't wait to see what next week's challenge will be! Yeah, I'm hooked.

Winter trimmed outterwear looks so very comfy! Bring it on, girl! We are in the throws of a full blown blizzard following a quickly arriving cold front which froze slush as ice then covering it with a layer of white. Out on the open road we were in blowing snow and colder road surfaces which was a relief....no ice, yet. Made the home front with massive sighs of relief only to muse over your gorgeous winter garb gals. Thanks for the perky sight while I wind down from the commute!
Blessings.
