Whiff of Joy Challenge #68 - A Sketch

15 minutes to go and then it's Saturday morning for us in South Africa.  What a lovely evening. For the regular followers... as you know we've been having a bit of a heatwave in Cape Town and I have my sliding window open in my room and there's a cool breeze blowing in - what bliss!!!

Whiff of Joy have a sketch for you to follow for their challenge this week. Remember, you have to use a Whiff of Joy stamp to take part.  As you know my new stamps arrived last weekend and I've been dying to stamp, colour and share Willow Shopping with you. Isn't she adorable?  These stamps were released early this month and everyone in craftland is using them, so I hope you're not too tired of her yet!
The base of my card is chocolate Bazzill.  The DP is from Kaiser Kraft - I've used both sides.  The turquoise flowers are from the Scrapbook Shop, the big rose from a craft shop at my local Mall, the paper lace from Charmaine's and the pearls and sentiment from Paola. I purchased my Whiff of Joy stamp through Paola, as well as my copics which I used to colour her in. So... for any of the SA girls reading my blog, Paola is the girl to contact for all your lovely crafty must have's... ie embellishments and overseas stamps.
I've kept the inside very simple, using Kaiser Kraft paper for the message board.  Hope you've all had a nice crafty evening.  I'll catch up with you later over the weekend.  For my overseas friends, I believe it's still cold your side of the world... wrap up warmly and enjoy the indoors - gives one a good excuse to craft!  Tons of hugs, Sharon x  p.s. oh yes, please feel free to leave a comment, I love reading them... thanks!

Hi Sharon,
You lucky thing having a heat wave although you might have enjoyed our day here in England. Cold rain all day that would have cooled you down. Ah well roll on summer. Your card is just lovely. The amazing thing about stamping is how many different looks you can get with the same stamp.
Sending you a cool breeze and a smile,
Love Cherie
