Spring Joy from Whiff of Joy and a MASSIVE WIN

First of all I would like to let you know that I won Sue's blog candy - she ran a post re making teal cards for a charity craft fair she was attending in aid of Ovarian Cancer. She made well over £100 due to the generosity of like-minded crafters all over the world. I will take a piccie of my goodies once they arrive but it is a massive win and I can't wait for it to arrive to share it with the world - only on pics mind - nobody is getting anything more than a nose of it he he.

I just would like to publicly thank Sue and her friends for doing this for a very special family who lost their dear mum and much loved wife to this goddamn awful hidden disease. I can only reiterate my scream ~ IF ANY OF YOU LOVELY BLOGGERS HAVE ANY ODD SYMPTOMS PLEASE SEE YOUR GP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

I am unsure what has happened re the light in the first pic of last 2 posts but the pic is not showing very well - sorry!
Using Spring Joy from my recent win over at I Love PMs, I made this shaped card - again still don't know what this type is called - if anyone wants detailed measurements just email me at and I will send them over to you. I coloured the image with PMs (so that I can enter the Whiff of Joy Thank You Challenge), then matted and layered onto MME & pearlised brown card, added a sentiment so that I could enter the fab Challenge over at Sentimental Sundays:Let's See Some Dimension and added 4 wee flowers I made using a punch I got 'cheap cheap' at The Range some time ago. Do pop along and pay them a visit - its a fab blog with some wonderful freebies!!
I am not sure you will be able to read the sentiment from her but it says ~
"One of the most beautiful things is to see someone smiling.........
and even more beautiful is knowing that you are the reason behind it."

I am enjoying making this style of card - different but very easy to make as it is only 2 A5 sheets or 1 A4 with the folds in the correct place.

I am LOVING my WoJ stamps - have another too - Mr and Mrs Foxglove yet to be played with.

Ingredients ~
Spring Joy Whiff of Joy stamp coloured with PMs ~
Blush, Satin, Ivory, Primrose, Vanilla, Sandstone, Coral, Caramel, Cinnamon, Pear Green, Marsh Green & Moss;
Backing papers are My Minds Eye and Pearlised brown & pale green from Papermill;
