Another Whiff of Joy City Girls sneak peek and a bit of Awww too

I just love the new Whiff of Joy release, the images are a breeze to colour and  I love that they are so different from anything else out there and perfect for the hard to please teenager lol.

I've gone with pinks today and not a bit of green in sight (okay just seen a tiny bit on the DP)


I dug out some tiny flat-back gems to add bling to her necklace and also to match the diamante ribbon slider from the Hobby House.

The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have popped them on a little punched flower (Kuretake medium heart petal flower from the Hobby House)

Now for some Awww.  Little Bonnie (from the last litter I bred)  is staying with me for a while as her new mammy is very very poorly in hospital and her new daddy doesn't want to leave her alone all day whilst he is out at work.  She’s loving being back “home” (let’s hope I can let her go when her mammy is out of hospital – hmmmm, I wonder!!).   Now is this cute or is this CUTE!!

Create4Fun Challenge

I’m not too sure who designed the sketch on Create4Fun Challenge blog this week but it’s a nice easy one (I’m still doing simples lol).  The prize is a set of Penny Black clear stamps called Garden Friends – too cute.

I just had to use this sweet little bear from Crafty Sentiments as soon as I got it this week, and even had a go at colouring him with Copics.  I’m getting there ……. slowly.  He’s from the new release by Kathy Hare due out on the 1st February. 

I got this paper last summer and I think it may be Doodlebug but not sure.


I did a bit of stitching around the squares and tweaked (again) and added the ribbon across the centre.  The sentiment is one of Crafty Sentiments new Valentines sets here.  I added some Stickles to the roses for a little bit of bling.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been spritzed with Snow Angel Glimmer Mist.  The pearls and heart pin are from The Hobby House.

I’ll try be back later with another Whiff of Joy sneak peek (if I get the housework done yuk!!)

Thanks for stopping by,


Shabby Chic Flowers



Today I have posted a little tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Tutorials and Inspiration blog for the flower that was on my Whiff of Joy card yesterday, so I hope you will pop across and take a peek and that it will inspire you to have a go.
