Tweet Friend

Hello my friends! Thank you so much for swinging by today. I'm sorry i am later with my posting than usually. I drove this morning already many miles :-) but now i have about 1.5 hours FREE time just for me and i hope i can start at least with one card. Push.. can you believe it.. usually i estimate one card for about 2 – 2.5 hours at least to make – that's when i use Copics not talking about water coloring a image in. I'm just still not so familiar with the media and it takes me time.

Anyhow.. back to the card :-) I love to make 6x6 Joy-Fold cards. They are special and fun and best i can use up lots of my scraps that i produce making cards. If you have not made one already check out the Whiff Of Joy Inspirational blog today. I have added there step-by-step instructions, measurements in inches and cm for you, so it should be a breeze to get one started.. maybe already today :-)

I also would love to sent you over to my wonderful friend Jeanette and her blog “Happy Thoughts and Inkspots! On Sunday i had sent her a email asking if she would be up for a monthly challenge with our Whiff Of Joy stamps and she was up for making a card that short notice for today. Please take a look at her super cute Joy Fold card here.. her coloring always just blows me away!
