Whiff of Joy 1st Anniversary Blog Hop Guest DT Call!

Whiff of Joy is one year old! They have done so much in one short year and have a lot to celebrate. Katharina is getting ready for a big blog hop on July 25th, and new stamps will be released at that time! Woo Hoo! More of their fantastic stamps!

To introduce the new stamps Katharina is choosing 15 --- that's right! --- 15 guest designers to showcase the new stamps during the blog hop. Well, in case you didn't know, I LOVE Whiff of Joy stamps and would love the chance to be a guest designer, even for a day. So, I made this card from Katharina's unique sketch and am submitting it for the blog hop guest designer spot.

Oakley and the wooden bench are colored with Copics, my favorite media for WOJ. The papers are from my age-old stash of scrapbook paper. The buttons from Oriental Trading Co.

He is just so cute, sitting there on the bench. He almost looks like he should have a fishing pole leaning against the bench!

This is Katharina's great sketch!

Wish me luck, everyone! Oh, if you want to try out for the guest designer spot for the blog hop, Katharina is taking entries until July 8th, 8 pm GMT+1.
