Happy Sunday & WOJ Challenge

Hi All!

What a wonderful day this has been. The snow looked so pretty falling. Of course, it isn’t a whole lot, and I would love to have a whole lot for a day or two and then be gone with it. At least it is not that right down frigid temps we had earlier. I hated it. I couldn’t get warm. Last night the temperature kept rising as the evening went on and I thought we were having a heat wave at 34 degrees. That is probably why the snow has stuck around today, because it had some moisture in it. Well, okay, I have talked enough about the weather.

I am posting this card for the Whiff of Joy challenge this week. It is to use a whiff of joy stamp and the colors green & purple. I used a mixture of SU papers, Kiwi Kiss, and SU purples. The ribbon I used was also SU. I colored my image with colored pencils and placed glitter on her wings as well as the white part of her bracelet. There is a little heart with the word "Love" engraved on it, hanging from the ribbon. The felt corner embellishment is from Oriental Trading and there is a little half pearl from SU glued to that.

The inside of the card is also decorated. The center heart has the words hugs & kisses stamped on it. All SU papers were again used as well as a 2" scalloped square punch. I cut off the scallop from two sides of each square and taped them together. The challenge was a great one. Enjoyed doing it so much.

Now I am off to work on another challenge. Several to do, but not enough time. It is so sad to have another life outside of stamping!

I want to thank you for stopping by and hope you do so often. Have a great day! Happy Stamping!
