Whiff of Joy DT and another mini album...

Hi everyone!! I've pulled myself out from under the mound of housework and laundry I'm dealing with to share a couple of things I made over the weekend. Yesterday was my birthday and hubster banished me to my craft area {notice I did NOT say craft room -  sad!} with strict instructions to relax and enjoy an afternoon of uninterupted crafting while he kept the kids amused :D :D :D So I finished off an album I started on Saturday and made a card using one of the wonderful new release stamps from Whiff of Joy

This is Nora with Spring Birds. Such a sweetie, don't you agree?? 

I've coloured my image with Copic sketch markers, to match the papers which are also from Whiff of Joy. The butterfly and sentiment is cut from one of the 'tags' papers. The sentiment has been raised up on 3D foam dots. The floss and button are from my stash.

Stamptacular Sunday - Love and lots of hearts
Allsorts - Love Love Love
Catch The Bug  - Anything Goes
 Fairy Fun Fridays – for a sweetheart
Raise The Bar - Hearts
Sew Many Cards - anything goes
Stampin With The Dragon– anything goes
Delightful Challenges- something that flies or has wings
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations - For someone special
Paper Playtime - Use Cupid or hearts


And this is my Tag Album..... 

Oh man, did this take a long time. I used buttons, ribbon, lace, metal, pearls, flowers, pins, twine, trim, tags, tickets, grungeboard, chipboard, and on and on.. not to mention the distressing, sanding, stamping, painting, curling..... but it was all worth it in the end!!

A few little close ups... 

Another one completed for my Esty shop... I really need to make things that don't take so long to complete, lol.

Thanks for popping by today. I appreciate the visit
