Sweet Wonderful You!

Morning all! Well what miserable weather we have here in Leeds today, oh well perfect day to spend in my craft room then! Lol! Apologies in advance for the photo quality today, the light is pretty poor this morning. Where's the sun when you need it!

I accquired some WOJ stamps from the lovely Linda this week {thanks hun!} and I couldn't wait to ink them up. I only own one other WOJ stamp which is Henry the mouse so it is lovely to expand my collection!


This card also meets with two of this weeks challenges. I have followed the wonderful sketch by Rach over at Whiff Of Joy {I have flipped it upside down } and I also incorporated the theme of spots, dots and circles over at Creative Inspirations. Does anyone else do this? I had a picture in mind of what my finished card would look like, and this wasn't it! I am a little dissapointed with this card and I'm not really 100% sure I like it all that much. Oh well, whats done is done now, maybe it'll grow on me! Lol!

Materials:

Image: Willow with flowers from Whiff Of Joy, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: Basic Grey Lemonade

Sentiment: from Magnolia summer kit

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties

Misc: Half Pearls, white organza ribbon from stash

Well that's all for me today folks. It's my DO today and my OH is in bed as he's on nights. So I think a quick trip to my local craft shop is called for before doing a bit of blog hopping and then some time in my craft room this afternoon!

Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

It's a lovely, sweet card Vicky and you're being way too hard on yourself! I do know what you mean though about cards never turning out how you see them in your mind's eye!
Have a fun day crafting hun ;o)
