Firstly I hope you have all been entering the Whiff of Joy daily advent candy - Katharina has been giving away the most amazing candy so pop across now to the blog and enter, it's almost over/
Also some NEWS!!! I spied on Katharina's blog that there is going to be a Whiff of Joy /Elisabeth Bell club kit which is going to be released soon and pre-orders will be taken in the new year. I adore Elisabeth's work so can't wait for this kit - ooooh my mouth is watering at the thought lol. So keep an eye on Katharina's blog and also the shop for updates. Better still, if you have not subscribed to Katharina's blog for updates pop across now so you can be sure to know when pre-orders will be taken.
The last bit of Whiff of Joy news .... the postage charges for European desitnations has been frozen at 1,50 Euros on a continuing basis for all orders inside Europe, AND starting from today flatrate shipping to ALL international destinations at a rate of 2,90 Euros (approx. 4 USD) no matter how heavy your package might be. So you can spend your extra pennies on even more stamps lol.
Now to my cards - I've two today seeing as I have not posted for ages. The first card is for this weeks Friday Sketchers and it's another brilliant sketch by the very clever Jacqueline.
I've used Teacher Anya from Pink Poison and have coloured her with distress inks and H2O's. The papers are Making Memories Noteworthy and that gorgeous ribbon is from Rach - thanks sweetie, I absolutely love it!! xxx
I'm well into this decorating the inside milarkey lol. The Happy Birthday stamp is also from Pink Poison, from the Cupcakes set. The border punch is from Martha Stewart.
I more or less carried the theme through to the back of the card, using the stamp from Ebay, the supplier kindly shared by Rach. I've had so many emails asking where I got it from so here's the link to the Ebay Shop.
I got carried away playing with my Pink Poison stamps and needed a last minute card (there's always one you need just when you think you're done!!). I used Anna Griffin paper, punched a red border strip with a Martha Stewart punch then stamped out the poinsettia from the Xmas Birds set (LOVE this set) and heat embossed with Moonglow embossing powder in red and again in green. Cut the flowers out and layered, I used Beadazzled beads for the centres of the flowers. Punched out some leaves with a Punch Bunch fern leaf punch and assembled in a circle. A little bow on the top and a few gold bells dotted in for a splash of colour and job done. A really quick and easy card. Love the poinsettias, the images are so detailed, even with heat embossing. The sentiment is by HOTP.
Thanks for looking,
