Exciting WOJ News!!!

Good Friday morning all!! I have some exciting Whiff of Joy news to share!! The new Elisabeth Bell images are winging their way to all the DT members, as I type!!! Katharina has announced that the official release date of the Willow and Oakley and the Guardian Angel lines of these amazing stamps will be Wednesday, September 3rd!! Woohoooo! I've posted a sneaky peek of one of the angels above!! You'd better mark this date on your calendar, because these babies are going to FLY off the shelves......get it...some of them are angels!! OH I crack myself up!!

So I have another Charlotte card for you today!! It features her singing her Christmas carols!! For this one I used some lighter weight watercolour paper and my SU markers to colour her in. The card base is white and that rosey cardstock I used is actually Coredinations paper that I got from The Town Scrapper. It is one colour on the outside and then when you run it through the Cuttlebug and sand the embossing a little bit, another colour shows through!! So cool!

I used Almost Amethyst for matting Charlotte, added some silver brads and then some Stardust Stickles to the snow and her hat, and the velvet scalloped ribbon is from American Crafts (I got it in Florida).

You may have noticed that I'm not posting a Friday Sketchers Challenge today. Well, with 5 design teams, a job at the library and my job as wife and mother, I'm finding myself stretched a bit thin at times and something had to give. Unfortunately, it is going to be the sketch blog. It was great being part of such a diverse group of crafty women from all over the world and I wish them lots of fun with their sketchiness!! I will certainly still be playing with their designs when I can and I hope that they offer my spot to an amazing Canadian designer, there are so many of you out there!!

Well, I've got to head in to work early for a meeting this morning, but I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!! The weekend is almost here!!
