Charlotte, It's Cold Outside!!!



It has been a VEEERY long week and I had a little itty bitty nap when I got home from work last night. Is that wrong?? I was exhausted!! But I got another card made while I waited for Emileigh to get home from her babysitting job, so that was productive!

I think this is my favourite card so far that I have made with one of my Whiff of Joy stamps.....(I say that until I make another one..heehee)! It's so soft and pretty and pastel-y!!

I started by stamping Charlotte on SU watercolour paper which is 140lbs weight, so it's the good stuff! I used Versafine Black Onyx ink and used my faithful SU markers to colour her up! I had picked out these lovely patterned papers by Melissa Frances so I used Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery markers. I punched out a couple of snowflakes from purple glitter paper from the DCWV Glitter Stack and attached them to the corner. I used the new scalloped border punch on the BBlue layer underneath the strip at the bottom and added some pink satin ribbon. I added a grouping of buttons at the top for the Papertake Weekly challenge to Button It!, pop dotted Charlotte and added Stardust Stickles to her hat and the snow. The sentiment is by The Cat's Pajamas and I love the font!



So did you know that there is a Whiff of Joy GALLERY now??? Yepper!! We on the Design Team have been adding our creations since we got the stamps so there's lots to look at! Go on over and check them out and be sure to leave us some comments and let us know what you think!! And if you've received your stamps from WOJ, be sure to upload your designs! We'd love to see them!

So I am off to start some laundry, run the dishwasher and get to stampin'!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
