I love colouring these santas in, especially filling in the trim on his suit with 'fluffy stuff' and watching it puff up when I blast it with my heatgun :D. Here's a close up of him
Managed to finish my Hello kitty and am quite chuffed with myself, for a 2nd attempt - will add a photo later! Will attempt a moose next which I think would make a great reindeer if I add a red nose but first must get some more cards done - still need to show you some more WOJ and also the next release from Kraftin Kimmies which Silly Monkey will have in stock on Sunday. Have a good day!

and so, as you break into ol blue eye's song I'll leave you with my last ever DT ATC for Tilda & Friends with our last challenge 'fall back'. It's been fun whilst it's lasted for the last 18 months and I'll hope you'll help us go with a bang and join in with our last ever challenge.
All together now . . . " . . I did it myyyyyy way!"
I'll see you tomorrow with my CCT card and hopefully my completed crochet Hello kitty I've been working on . . it looks like this at the moment

I think they are just so whimsical and cute and very scandinavian in flavour. Reminds me of their tomtes/nisse which is their little elf/gnome folk I think. Anyway, isn't she adorable?! I love her with her chunky legged reindeer :D - had a blast colouring it. I've teamed her with some fresher colours as I wanted a very girly, whimsical card and I couldn't resist adding a shiny red gem on the reindeer's nose :)
I will be working my way through the other 5 designs but if you can't wait then check out the rest of the DT (in my side bar) who are doing the same all this week.

Anyway, here's another christmas card I put together. I've been wanting to use this fab Alota stove stamp and finally got round to it by putting it with this cute baking Santa from WoJ and thought I use some non christmassy papers for a change (DCWV 'Nana's kitchen' matstack) and see how it would like - thought it'd make a change from the traditional dark christmas reds and greens. I'm happy with how it turned out. Santa's been raised onto foam pads for bit of dimension, then it's just lots of different punches and faux stitching around the edges.
Here's a close up of cute santa and his glittery puffy hat trim (Woodware 'fluffy white stuff' plus glamour dust before blast with heatgun to make it all puffy) - I love his slippers and frilly pinny :D
I've still got some WoJ candy to give away (which will include this cute santa) but will wait till Monday as I think Mr linky is playing up at the moment and I want to put together a few other bits but won't have time to put it all together until then so hopefully see you Monday. Thanks for visiting.

On the subject of Whiff of Joy, there will be a new dedicated blog - 'Whiff of Joy Tutorials & Inspiration' and it will do what it says on the tin! All the DT will contribute to it with tutorials, tips and tricks. This will replace the Project of the month (POM) and will start on the 1st of Nov. Hmmm, now I just need to think of something that would be worth sharing! Open to ideas/suggestions of what you would find useful.
Thanks for stopping by. Will be back tomorrow with something completely different (Sister has asked for a congrats card for someone. Requested today, for tomorrow . . so best get my skates on!)

I managed to get hold of a Martha Stewart loopy border punch and the matching corner punch so had to try it out as soon as I got it - as you do with new toys! So anyway, I did, and was left with a 5" blank card with fab loopy edges all the way round so decided to make a quick card with it with another super cute Henry mouse stamp which I just cut out, coloured and added to the card along with a bit of dp and ribbon and card done!
I wanted to give the wreath some texture & sheen so added some clear glaze pen over some of the leaves to make them look glossy like real holly leaves and love how it looks IRL - may see it better if you click on photo.
Here's another shot of it laying flat so you can see how I've matted the inside of the card with matching green dp so that the loops stand out more against the contrasting colour;
I've managed to colour a few more different Henry's seeing as I had my xmas papers & my Copic mouse colours out so should have a few more Henry christmas cards to show you . .but not till Monday (need to work tonight and it'll take me a day or so to decide on card layouts and all the embellies!) So until then, have a lovely rest of the weekend.
