Birthday Card and WOJ Challenge




Hello everybody!

Todays post will be a short one again as I'm so busy this week. After we had freezing weather last week here in Florida (can you believe that? .... it was waaaay too cold and quite unusual), I have to replace several plants in my yard. Despite all my efforts to save them (covering with warm blankets etc) unfortunately they didn't make it. At least my citrus trees are ok! I'm thankful for that. And I am also planning on doing a yard sale on Saturday and have to re-organize my craft room as I am about to buy me new furniture...YAY! can't wait, it's so exciting! Finally getting a nice crafting desk and storage cabinet! Also have to finish some more cards and birthday gifts, but I'll show you all that later this week!

Todays card has a double roll it's a birthday card for a crafting friend in Germany and also a challenge card. Her birthday is coming up in February and I hope she'll like it. I tried not to go too wild with the embellies as she doesn't like that. And also this is my contribution to the WOJ Challenge. Katharina made the sketch for this weeks challenge and I really liked that sketch and I had fun making my card. Oh yes and I recieved my new WOJ stamps last week and sure, I had to use one of the cute Party Animals for the card. ;-)

Ok but that's not it for today hehe... there is coming another card later today. This will be a
ROP DT Card ... a special promotion ;-) ...so make sure to check back again later!























And last but not least my ingredient list for the card:

Stamps/Stempel: Whiff of Joy Party Animals
Colored with/ Coloriert mit: Distress Ink Refills
Paper/Papier: DCWV (sweet), Bazzill, Image stamped on Curious Iridescent (Poison Ivory)
Other/Sonstiges: Prima Flowers, Ribbon/Band, Stickles, EK Success Punch (Martha Stewart Line), Tag Punch, Nestabilities, Dew Drops, Eyelets, Clip.



Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
