Happy Hump Day!!  Well today is a very busy day on my blog!!  This is my second post of the day of three and my first blog hop of two...If you are here for the Creative Belli or YNS challenge, please scroll down to the next post...IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE WOJ CHALLENGE HOP, You are in the right place!!

Today marks the 100th Whiff of Joy challenge and the team is celebrating with a Hop to go with the challenge!!  This week's challenge is anything goes with a Whiff of Joy image!!!  If you arrived here from Chelsea's blog, you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at the beginning, at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog!!  There are a few prizes hidden along the way, and even we, the dt, do not know where they are!!!  You have until the 29th of March to enter!!  Winners will be announounced on the 30th.

I am thinking spring, Easter and Mother's day lately so I am getting a head start on my gift making.  For my creation, I used the darling Willow Kneeling image which I colored with copics.  I created a 3d gift using the My Time Made Easy Trendy Tool Tote template designed by Lauren Meader.  I used some of my new embossed dp from K and Co. with hydrangeas on it...my fave flower!!  It is so sparkly!!  The sentiment on the candle is from Whiff of Joy's Blooming Spring Kit.  The pearl and gold butterflies are one of my recent finds at Michaels!!

This makes a fun Mother's Day or Easter Gift set.  The candle jar is covered with matching dp and has a sentiment and punched dp on it. The herb pot has a ribbon bow on it.

If you click on this last photo, not only will you see the side of the trendy tool tote, you will see lots of sparkle on the dp.  It is gorgeous!!
I hope you enjoyed my creation today, don't forget, if you join our challenge, to link your creation here.
 Since it is an anniversary challenge, Katharina and Simon Says Stamp are both offering an awesome prize!! For a chance to win you must join the challenge and leave a comment on each dt's hop creation post and join the Whiff of Joy Anything Goes challenge!

challenges I am entering my creation in:
The next stop on the hop is the uber talented and sweet Gio.
I hope you are able to stop by again at noon (EST) for another fun hop with more prizes and inspiration!!  The Whimsy hop will begin then....
Thanks for comments and for stopping by!!

blessings and hugs,
Chris
