WOJ Women's Delight Sneak Peak & Friday Sketchers # 55...Babies touch the world with love!

I am so excited to show you a sneak peak of the gorgeous new Whiff of Joy Women's Delight collection by Elizabeth Bell! They will be available in the Whiff of Joy Online shop June 14th! Make sure you get in on these stunning stamps!!!!

This stamp of Willow expecting is just so beautiful! I just adore it! I do have a bit of a funny story to tell about this card...well, I 'm not sure if it's funny really...It's just that I can be so dense sometimes,lol!!!! Well, Anyways, I wanted something for poor Willow to sit on, after all she is expecting and needs to take a load off! So, I asked my hubby to draw in something that she could sit on! Well, this is what he came up with, a swing! I thought it was brilliant!!!! Not a bad job, eh!? Then, I made another card (that I will show you tomorrow) with what I thought was a trellis/pergola type thing with flowers on it!!! Well, later I realized it is actually a swing, duh!!! Talk about dense or what!!!! Kinda helps if you turn things the right way,lol! Well, I was going to do the image over but I think I would have hurt my hubby's feelings if I didn't show you the swing he drew for sweet Willow!!!!

I made this card for the challenge over at Friday Sketchers with the fabulous sketch they have this week!!

I used some beautiful papers from Cosmo Cricket called Girl Friday! I am loving Cosmo Cricket papers they are really pretty! I used some great American Crafts ribbon, pretty Prima flowers and buttons from my stash. I threaded the buttons with Scrappers floss and I inked all the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz distress inks and stamped the stitching with my Kelly Panacci stamps and Weathered Wood Distress ink.

I stamped Willow on Bee Artist Marker pad paper and coloured her with my Copics. My Hubby, Chris, drew in the swing with a Copic Multiliner pen and they are Copic Marker Proof, so I was able to colour it with my markers and not have the ink smear.

Here is the inside!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee sneak peek at the new Women's Delight collection from Whiff of Joy! Make sure you mark June 14th in your calendar and visit the Whiff of Joy Online store!
Come back and see my other happy accident tomorrow,smile!!!!

LOL Tara that's just too funny - at least you've got a very helpful and arty husband! . . and his swing looks more substantial and likely to be able to hold that 'extra weight' heehee Love your card and that dp looks yummy

Hugs, Fran xx
