Oh boy! Do I have lots to share with you today!! To begin with, this is my first card ever made with the Wiff of Joy Stamps. Isn't little Melinda Helping Angel adorable! She was so much fun to color, and put together, and I'm looking forward to making many, many cards with this sweet little girl. I had to get this particular stamps, because I can soooo relate to doing the dishes! I've spent my fair share of time washing, and drying, and I can't seem to get away from it!! Sheesh!! She's my soul sister!! *wink* Since I have so much to share, I'm not going to list a recipe for how I made this card. You can always email me if you want deets. Be sure to scroll down for a great sketch challenge, and a chance to win some blog candy from one of my favorite sweet sistahs!

I thought it would be fun to share this sketch challenge with you from Paper Craft Planet. It's an online paper craft community that I just discovered thanks to my friend Carloyn who invited me to come on over. I'm finding it a wonderful place to meet fellow addicts! LOL!! Well...you are all aware that this is an addiction! :-) Hop on over there and check the place out. I don't think you'll be disappointed! Happy surfing!! PCP shares a new sketch challenge every Saturday, so I will be sharing those with you to see what wonderful things we can create from these great layouts. To all you JC Sassy Stampers, why don't you try this sketch out, and bring your creation to share at our next stamp club meeting? Come on....give it a try!! :-)

I also want to let you know that my friend Kadie is having a little contest on her blog. She's asking for help with sentiments for a couple of Hanna cards she's making, and she's giving away blog candy on Friday for the winner of the contest. Please visit Kadies blog and leave her a comment with your ideas for sentiments. Free stamp sets are always a good incentive for creative thinking!!
Thanks for stopping by to visit today, as always have a beautiful day, and Happy Stamping!!!!!!!!

What a great job Lorie and fabulous coloring. What did you use to color her in?

Carolyn Bounds said...

Oh, Lorie...she is PRECIOUS!!! I love the way you colored her, and she makes me smile:o) I can relate to the dish washing and drying comment. Maybe that is why I was so drawn to this stamp too. I guess we are all soul sistahs.

I hate to be an enabler, but you may want to check this background set out: http://stampin.com/online/designs/k-4.htm
It goes with this stamp sooo perfectly! It has been on my wish list for a while. Hopefully, I will be getting it soon:o)

I hope your weekend is wonderful!!!

She's adorable!!!!!!! And you did a wonderful job on watercoloring.....and you said mine was good, I don't even compare to your ability. :-) I hope your month slows down and you're able to gain some peace over the holidays. I'll be thinking about you and sending stamp hugs your way.
