Whiff of Joy Challenge 76-Bevs Sketch + Stamp Something-Charmed Something

Good morning everyone well I'm back from my travels and had a fab time at the Dublin class they are such a brilliant bunch of woman and Annamarie is so lovely too...cant wait to go back again...ohhhhh and I bought goodies from Annamarie too so will show you them tomorrow and next week...my angel of a husband drove me to the class and sat patiently reading his Jeremy Clarkson book giggling away to himself in the corner, he even helped me set up and clean up...we even spent the three hour car journey home giggling and laughing he is such a treasure and I love him to bits but ssssshhhh don't tell him I told you so lol...well I hope you all had a fantastic week and Im catching up with all your fab blogs...my card for today is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge, I couldn't resist that sketch by Bev now could I and also for the Stamp Something challenge which is to use charms...I used one of the city girls and coloured her with Distress inks and paper pieced her with the check paper, now these papers are amazing, well I say paper they are card and from the DCWV Natural collection from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I bought the half pack as its brilliant value and I love the designs and they mix and match with so many colours too...I added some suede tie which was attached to some table mats I bought, see never throw anything away and finished with a bow and charms and two fabulous Prima roses...I hope you like it and now I'm off to play with my new Magnolias which arrived while I was away...enjoy your Saturday everyone

Mina, what a wonderful card! I love her paper pieced dress and the suede tie - isn't it fab when we can recycle something!! So glad you had fun in Dublin! I'm intrigued about the Jeremy Clarkson book - we are HUGE JC fans here and I think my hubby would love to have his book - is it an autobiography? Please tell!
Hugs, Danielle

Hi Mina,

Julie M said...

Lovely to see her on a card, it's gorgeous, Mina!! I thoroughly enjoyed your class on Thursday, am determined to perfect the colouring technique and not have any more bruises on my Tildas!!! Didn't realise that was your husband, he was so unobtrusive in the corner I thought he worked in there and was making sure we didn't trash the place!!!!

And this one is gorgeous. Brilliant paper piecing - I picked up a houndstooth embossing folder in the States to go with my houndstooth stamp and must definitely make more use of them! Warmest wishes, Lesley
