Whiff of Joy DT & Just Magnolia/hAnglar & stAnglar Challenges

Afternoon!!! It's a hot and sunny day here and you'd think that would mean peace and quiet while the kids played outside.. well you'd think that anyway!!! Alas, things are not always that simple, because along with sunshine and heat we have wasps.. so we have screaming girls all over the place.. and woah.. they can scream!!!

Anywhooooo.. I have 2 cards to share today. My first card if for Whiff of Joy DT  card using the new Travel and Adventure stamps featuring our furry friend, Henry Mouse. There are 9 stamps in total including sentiment which have matching dies. 

The image I used is called Campfire Fun I used copic markers to colour him in and do the dirt and I used distress ink with a thick paintbrush to do the sky.

My papers are from the new Lost & Found 2 "Breeze" Collection and I've matted and stitched them to kraft cardstock. I've made the picket fence behind Henry using one of Whiff of Joy's new dies, and added some pearls and flossed buttons to finish off.

My second card is for Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenges, and their theme is Holiday Fun. 
My love of Magnolia has be reignited from my recent GDT sting on Just Magnolia and I just had to play along.

My papers are by Pink Paislee and they are from the Butterfly Garden collection. I've matted them with pink and green cardstock,  stitched them down and added a white doily. I've coloured Tilda with copic markers, trimmed her out and mounted her on 3D pop dots.

The flower and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Prima pearl swirls, bookplate and sentiment stickers are from the wonderful kit I recently won on Lucky Girl Crafts.

Really fun cards, Sandie! I just love that Henry Mouse card you shared with us at The Kraft Journal. Such an awesome design and amazing coloring. Love that rustic picket fence mixed with the lace, and love all the stitching. Really adore how part of the campfire is fussy cut. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
