WoJ and WOC!

Hi, guys! It's been a lovely day, sunny and mild - Spring is definitely on the way!

A few days ago I made a card for the current Whiff of Joy challenge and made a mistake with the sketch, so I had another go!

The sweet image is 'Willow with Toddler' from Whiff of Joy. The papers are a mish-mash from stash. I used Speccies to colour Willow and I'll list what I used at the end. The lace and ribbon are also from stash, and so are the gems.

Here's the sentiment, the ticket stamp and word are both from Lili of the Valley. I used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the end of the tag.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sprayed them with glimmer mist, and the camera has picked up the colour and made it much yellower than in real life, chiz.

I'm entering 2 Challenges:

Whiff of Joy Challenge which provided the great sketch

and Wild Orchid Challenge which is White + 1 other colour - I went for blue.

Ok, time to clear the kitchen - my daughter made iced biscuits this afternoon and everything is covered with icing sugar!

Thanks for looking and have a good evening.

love Mags B x
