Whiff of Joy challenge and a new illustrator for Whiff of Joy

Yep, Whiff of Joy has a new illustrator, Norma Fickel, and we have 6 adorable little gnomes to play with lol.  They are so sweet and whimsical and so easy to colour too!  These stamps will be released on 31st October.  Our very own Sonja has designed another fab set of swirls, flourishes and snowflakes (and ... shhhh .... I have another candy coming up soon lol)w1a

Our challenge on Whiff of Joy is a colour combo - Red, Cream and one other colour.  So, with all the sweet Christmas stamps I have to work with I'm sticking with Christmas lol.  I am not too keen on how the colouring turned out - told you I needed loads more practice with these here Copics!!

A close up of the flower detail, and the teeny little pine cones I picked up in the fields whilst walking the dogs yonks ago (knew they would come in handy one day!!)

  40. HI Bev, this little beaut is a hit and my, you have made that lacey ribbon look so much better than my attempt on my card,if you get 5 minutes there is a pic of my Bro's Dog Lacey on my blog I think you will like...
    She was a pleasure to look after, and my dog Kip sulked for ages when she went home...
    I was so worried about looking after her as I was told 2 girl's would fight, but they were best of friend's, I didn't want her to go home...
    Love all your card's , you make it look so effortless...
