Whiff of Joy Challenge DT, a sneak peek and a DT call!!!!

Yippee!!! Not only is it time for another Whiff of Joy Challenge but it is also preview time for some amazing Christmas images coming to you on 1st September from Whiff of Joy!!!!!
Meet baby Sammy. Isn't he cute!?!?! Named after our designer Alison Acton's little bundle of joy he's a new character to the Whiff of Joy images. This image is just perfect for a baby's first Christmas card don't you think? Unfortunately I don't have any such cards to send this year but think he is perfectly at home on any Christmas card that calls for cuteness!

My paper is Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather (love the name!) and I've stamped around the edges with a Stempelglede flourish stamp using fired brick distress ink and then stickled over the top.

I've coloured Sammy with copics and then created a huge snowflake out of the image mat by adding die cut snowflakes around the edge using a Marianne Creatables die and adding lots of MS glitter.

The sentiment comes with little Sammy and is the perfect one for him don't you think? Just love watching my two open their presents excitedly on Christmas morning!

I added more sparkly snowflakes using the same die and a MS snowflake punch, this time covering them in a fine white glitter. The brads and gems are from the Hobby House.

Hope you can join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy Challenge! Pop over and see the rest of the teams creations. Thanks for looking!

What about that DT call you mentioned in your title? I hear you cry. We are holding a DT call for Whiff of Joy Challenge blog with this challenge so be sure to get your entry in if you'd like to be considered!!

I particularly like that giant snowflake effect behind the image panel & your characterful & expressive colouring of the little boy. It's a delightfully contemporary Christmas card.

Gorgeous card it.

Re The storage...It will work for Copics, and you will be able to fit more than 11 per shelf as they are slimmer...and you have the colours on the lids, so it saves adding stickers to the end of the pens.

I keep my Copics in the clear boxes they came in, and have sorted the colours into order.
