WOJ Challenge #15

First off I want to thank everyone for the well wishes for my hubby! Today is the first day he is actually feeling better...so I got a little time to play today, after cleaning all the germies out of our house! And luckily enough (knock on wood) I haven't gotten sick! Hopefully it stays that way! Tomorrow my semester starts at school so homework will be consuming a lot of my time...but I am sure I will be able to still squish in some play time....somethine has to keep me sane and give me a break from all of the numbers!

This week over at the WOJ Challenge blog there is a sketch by the fabulous Katharina! I always like to use Katharina's sketches to make my cards!!! Here is my take on the sketch! I got this fabulous WOJ Herb in Love from my great friend Loreen! She has the WOJ stamps available for purchase at her store, Wish On A Scrap. Papers are from my stash...some are so old I don't even know where they are from anymore....ooppss, you can't tell I love paper can you?! I used my Janome Sew Mini that I got from Christmas from my parents! After a little bit of trouble trying to put the bobbin in....we were in sewing order! I had so much fun with it...I can only imagine you will get sick of seeing sewing on my cards! ha ha! I also used my Fiskars heart border punch, prima and hemp twine from my stash. My new Valentine ribbon...I think one is from Joanns and the other is Michaels.
Here is a close up of my snowpeople! Aren't they just adorable? I colored them with my Copics, and then added some Shimmerz Blingz in pixie dust for some glitz and shine! I am a total girlie girl and love sparkles! (If you click on the picture it will make it bigger so you can see the Shimmerz sparkle!)
And of course we have the finished inside! Used my nesties as I did on the front! I took the scalloped circle and ran the piece through my Cuttlebug in my d'vine swirls folder to add a little bit of dimension! Then added some foam hearts....and my masterpiece was complete!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
