Whiff of Joy Blog Hop & Stampin' for the Weekend

Good morning!! Welcome to Whiff of Joy's Blog Hop. The whole team have come together to showcase some wonderful Christmas creations. If you have arrived here from Karen's blog then you are on the right track, if not then you may want to jump back to Katharina's blog which is where the hop begins. 

The hop will end on December 24th and one lucky commenter will win €30 to spend @ Whiff of Joy.  What a great Christmas gift!!

*Don't forget that you can get 20% off your entire order in the Whiff of Joy store when you use the coupon code below. This coupon is valid until December 24th.*

I have to confess that I combined my blog hop card with my Stampin' for the Weekend DT card.. naughty me, but it is the season of long queues and marathon shopping, so crafty time is at a premium, lol. 

Don't you just LOVE Henry Mouse and his cheeky little smile??!! I've coloured him using copic markers and then added some glossy accents to the trim on his Santa hat, the berries and bow on the wreath. 

My papers are BG Jovial, love love love them!! I broke out the sewing machine and stitched the card... had to blow the dust off of the machine first, haha!! Then I added some white & red poinsettias along with some punched out pine leaves, white roses and red pearl top pins. 

I've used 2 red ribbons, one organza and one sateen. I made the bow from the sateen and {with a lot of effort} pushed a pearl/gold brad through. This was no easy task, but I think it turned out pretty nice. 

To complete my card I added a Christmas tree charm on some silver fine link chain

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog today, your next stop on the hop is Nana's blog and I'm sure she has created something wondeful for you to feast your eyes on. 

Please also don't forget to leave my Stampin' for the Weekend teamies a little love on their blogs, they work so hard to bring you some inspirational creations.

Challenges I am entering this card into:
Stamp With Fun – Xmas
A Spoon Full of Sugar – Christmas Card

Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!!
