WOJ ch 47 & Sketch Saturday DT Call

How happy am I with this card? Very lol It's official I feel my Mojo has finally returned phew (I was getting worried there for a moment) I have used a couple of Stampin' Up! stamp sets one of which is in our last chance so when it's gone it's gone so you must order it, I bought this a couple of months ago and it is so versatile as you can see lol great for baby cards too or children's boys or girls it includes elephants crocodiles as well as penguins and birds that's EIGHT STAMPS quality wooden stamps for an amazing £20.95 that works out at around £2.60 a stamp and it will soon be going so grab it while you can. (you can always order from me if you like just e-mail me at

Any way on to the card and the challenges lol. look at this close up I love it love it. I have used versamark and clear EP as I do most times like on the WOJ Christmas card I love that card lol I really like the raised shiny effect and notice the lions body I haven't so it looks more mat (like fur) just to ad to the texture of the card I have had the brayer out again lol I love the effect I get and the inks are wonderful as they all match perfectly with the card stock I love co-ordinating. I am putting this in for TWO challenges (get me it's becoming a habit) lol the first is a colour challenge oops I have just realised I haven't used a WOJ stamp on this card oh well they can have a looksey it's for WOJ ch 47 and it's colours orange & teal I am not having much luck with WOJ I did the beautiful Christmas card with a WOJ stamp following the sketch and posted on the day after the entry date lol (dizzy Dawn) and now I have done the colour challenge and for got to use a WOJ Stamp (did I say my MoJo had returned?) mmmm My illness and the tablets I am on do funny things to me sometimes doh! Any way thank you WOJ for the colour inspiration I think it's turned out wonderfully. The next challenge was Sketch Saturday they are looking for new Design Team Members, not that I think I have a cat in hell's chance I saw my friend Sem's Card Oh My, talk about beautiful and full of wonderful extra's (should I be saying this about the competition?) lol well I am truthful and Sem is marvelous, go have a look for your self Sem’s Blog (I shouldn't of done that should I?lol) Well credit where credit's due and what are we crafters if not a lovely bunch :-) and that's the only one I have seen, goodness knows what everyone else has done. I can say I think the Sketch is FAB! and I will most definatly use it again it doesn't say who did it but it is wonderful. And this is only Pt. one of the enrty reqirements, goodness knows what I'll do if I get past this stage. But I really enjoyed making this card and that's what it's all about. Look I even did the inside.
ItemsUsed: DP Pumpkin Pie SU, Inks SU versamark & Black stazon (all available from SU) Card Stock SU. Glimmer Mist Lemon zezt & Iridesent gold (for the sun) and that's it I think. Stamp sets, Forest Friends & Wild about you. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx
