Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you all have been having a good week!!

Today I have  a couple projects to share with you for a few different challenges.
First, is this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge... This week the team is challenging you to create a shaped card or project that is not square or rectangle! Here is my take on this week's challenge:
  • For my creation I used the WOJ Willow with Hot cocoa image and the grab a cup template from Lauren Meader's My Time Made Easy store.  The designer paper is from Prima's Sparkling Spring collection.  I colored the image with copics and framed it in the classic circles and Lacey circles dies from Spellbinders.  The white background is embossed with Cuttlebug's Spots folder.  The ribbon is May Arts and it tied with the Bow Easy.  The butterflies are punched with a Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch.  The button is from Recollections and the flowers are from ZVA Creative.
    For more inspiration for the Whiff of Joy Challenge with the "Buttons and blooms" theme, please visit my dt sisters:
    Anne Chelsea,  Gio, Jane, KathrinKylie, Louise, Manuela.  Michele To join our challenge, please link your creation here.

  • **********************
    My next creation is for both the Creative Belli and the Your Next Stamp Challenge since both challenges involved stitching!!
    This week's Your Next Stamp challenge  hostess is my sweet and talented dt sister, Beth, and she has challenged us to use faux or real stitching on our creations.
    This week's Creative Belli Challenge is to think like a seamstress.  Use things a seamstress would use....stitching, buttons, seam binding, ribbon, zippers, velcro.....
    Here is my creation for this challenge using the Easter Egg Tree image from Your Next Stamp.  The image is colored in copics.  The shape of the card uses the Labels 10 Spellbinders die.  The background is embossed with the Spots folder from Provocraft.  The button is from Recollections. The ribbbon is May Arts Silk ribbon tied with the bow easy.  I added sparkle to the frame which is hard to see in this photo, but if you click on it, you can see it much better.
    For more inspiration for the YNS "Stitching" challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
      Karen, Crystal , Kerri ,   Simonne, Beth, Maureen, Jenny, Dana, Diana

      and Wendy 

    We've decided to change the way we do prizes.  From now Karen will be giving away a stamp set to a random winner!  The prize for this challenge is Bad Hair Day Fhiona:
