WOJ Challenge - Janes sketch!

Afternoon all. Sorry the post is late today. I overslept this morning so didn't have the chance to post before work. Ooops! Lol!

We have a wonderful sketch to follow this week over at the Whiff Of Joy Challenge by our very own Jane. Now I don't mind admitting that initially I had a little difficulty with this sketch. But I got there eventually and I really like the final result! But to me that's what crafting is all about. Taking yourself outside of you comfort zone and trying something that you wouldn't ordinarly do!

This card is for my neice's birthday. Now this image is really a christmas image as it usually has holly on the mug. But I have paper peiced the mug and added a little punched out heart. This image is perfect for my neice as she just loves hot chocolate and has one every night before she goes to bed!


Image: Henry Mouse with Hot Chocolate. Available here from Whiff Of Joy. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: K&Co Sparkly Sweet


Sentiment: Craftwork cards

Tools: SU scalloped oval punch, SU Oval punch, circle nesties, distressed stripes embossing folder

Misc: Flowers and brad from stash

I hope you can stop by and join us at the WOJ challenge this week. Please stop by and take a look at the other DT creations, they are as amazing as ever!

Just before I go I would like to say a huge thank you to Jules for a fab night last night. I went to her house with 5 other ladies for a SU workshop in her new 'conservatiore'. We spent a lovely 2hours making 4 notlet cards and a little box for them to go in! As soon as I can get some light I will take a picture and show you what we made.

Thanks for stopping by

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
