Whiff of Joy Challenge #25 / Simon Says Stamp Challenge #1



I made this card for Whiff of Joy Challenge #25. Pardon the glare from the pictures but the sun seems to be shining into our living room from all directions these days. I really like the sketch provided by Katharina and she's launching more new stamps again! That is probably bad news for my wallet. LOLs!

Anyhows, I used the sitting girl and tree stump above from WOJ's Spring kit collection designed by Elisabeth Bell. I had tried sewing on the squares and its my first time using the sewing machine that I had bought off Taobao.com (China's version of Ebay) and so I think the stitches are none too impressive but this is a big step from having the sewing machine jammed half the time and hair/thread pulling at the same time! After all, I almost failed my sewing segment in Home Economics class last time... ...

I used green, brown and yellow papers for a very 'Easter/Spring' feel (it's finally Spring in Shanghai!) and to meet the requirements of the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp challenge blog as well. I did not put in any sentiments cos I wanted some generic cards as spares. I finished this in 2 hours. I'm beginning to feel better as I use up my stash these days. Less guilt, more fun and more mojo!

Lovely card the WOJ image is lovely and I think the papers and stitching look just fab ! The stitching might not be 'perfect' but I think that adds to the 'look' :-)

Thanks for joining the Simon Says Challenge
