Whiff of Joy Challenges and Colour Me Creative Challenge.

Hi everyone!! Boy the summer holidays sure kills off any computer time! The kids are stuck indoors again because of the rain and it's taking all I'm worth to keep them amused. They haven't noticed me missing yet so I'm typing as fast as I can, lol.

I have a couple of cards I'd like to share today.... but first I'd just like to remind you that you only have 4 more days to enter my Blog Candy. Just click HERE or the pic in my sidebar to go to the post... if you're not in you can't win ;)

First up is my Whiff of Joy Challenges, a sketch by Kylie. There is still another week left on this challenge so plenty of time to get your entries in.

On my card I've used one of the new stamps being released on August 1st. You are gonna LOVE these stamps so start saving your pennies ;) 

My papers are from Craftworks and I've matted them with Kraft. All of my papers have been inked and machine stitched. I've used copics on my image.. sorry I didn't keep track of which colours I used. 

The sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy's August release and co-ordinates with the stamps. 

The swirled arrow is by Cherry Arte. The jute and flossed button are from my stash.

Both are very cute cards Sandie! Love the machine stitching on the 1st. It reminds me that I need to learn how to use my new machine. Love the colouring too on both cards. I like how the ribbons were made and positioned on your 2nd card.
