Whiff of Joy Challenge 1

Woohoo - how cool does it feel to be posting this!! We're up and running with our first challenge which is a spectacular sketch by the very talented Katharina from Whiff of Joy.

I do hope you will join in with the challenge - the prizes, yes plural!!! are fantastic so please pop over and take a peek. And if you think this weeks prizes are good, just you wait to see what's on offer next week!

Whoops, just noticed the strawberry charm is skew whiff in the photo - serves me right for not checking (but I have a good excuse - my hubby is reorganising my craft room and everything is upside down - I had about an hour to make this card, sat on the top step working on my lap so please forgive the pic!!!) I can't believe just how much stuff I have (she says whilst blushing beetroot ). My bedroom is full, the spare bedroom is full, as is the landing, the bathroom and a large portion of the garage. How on earth I am ever going to find anything after this is beyond me.


The Whiff of Joy image - Melinda Reading is coloured with Distress Inks and Twinkling H2O's.
Papers are my beloved K & Co (again)
Pearls are from Sally (who has new stocks in!!!)
Flowers are Prima and Poppicrafts
Sentiment is Stampin Up
Gold findings are from my stash
Doily is from a RAK


Thanks for looking,
