World Card Making Day.

Apparently today is World Card Making Day or WCMD for those in the know…and I didn’t!! I had never heard of such a thing, but I suppose that with so many card makers out there it was bound to happen eventually! ;-)

In the spirit of the day I had hoped to make lots of cards, but I got caught up in the Whiff of Joy challenge that has driven me to distraction!! Would you believe that I spent all afternoon, on and off, on this. I never thought that card making could be so difficult!! (By the way, I have just realised that also fits the challenge fro the Little Paper Shop Blog quite neatly because the colours are definitely non-traditional, i.e. not green or red, so I hope that they will accept my entry!)

The main reasons for that is that this challenge was quite different to my usual card making style. The challenge meant that we had to use a particular layout with lots of layers and extra bits that I am not used to; and secondly, we had to use a Whiff of Joy stamp. Now…I had won Herb with Baby last year but not gotten round to using it because it wasn’t really my style.

Nevertheless, here it is! (do click to make bigger!)

As you can see – not my usual style at all so most definitely a challenge for me!! Do go and find out about the latest Whiff of Joy challenge cos you might just win something!! (and after all, it is WCMD!)
