Whiff of Joy challenge

My, it's a cold, dull day today! There was too much cloud to see the meteors last night or the partial eclipse of the sun this morning. Is anyone else watching the bbc's live starwatching programme with Prof Brian Cox and Dara O'Briain? Fascinating!

This card is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge which has a lovely sketch. I love the WoJ stamps, and this image of Willow with cookies makes me think of my daughter, who loves to bake. Her cupcakes are yummy, though after she's iced them there are always blobs of icing to be scrubbed off the floor, the surfaces, the tiles... I think it's called enthusiasm! She also drinks a lot of tea, hence the teapot charm, which is also from Whiff of Joy

Anyway, the papers are a freebie from a magazine, and the bow is made with ribbon cut from a blouse. One of my New Year Resolutions is to USE UP MY STASH!!!!! because soon there won't be any room for me to get in through the door of my bedroom!

I hope you're all doing well. Sympathies to those who have to return to work today - I go back tomorrow, but at last I have the house to myself so I can get cleaning without hubby and daughter underfoot!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Hi Maggie,
Such a delightful card and a beautifully coloured image. Love the cording that the charm is suspended from.
Have had a quick look round your blog and I found it very interesting. Going back in a moment to have a better browse.
Happy New Year
