Sunday is almost gone...so sad. Another week to face. Isn't it sad when you live for weekends, lol. I spent part of my weekend working on 2 cards for the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call. They are my absolute favorite line of stamps. I know my chances are probably minimal but will go ahead & post my 2 entries. I am blown away by the beautiful work that people do! I've gone through my recent postings to review my "style" and I guess you can say it is minimal. I just hate covering up great design paper with embellishments!

Katharina has provided a great sketch for the challenge-








I have used 2 stamps from the Spring set which I absolutely love! I am so glad they included a boy in the set. So I will start with my 1st card which is Oakley sitting on the tree stump. I just think Oakley is so cute. I found this dp at the local scrapbook store and knew it was meant for him. All the dp is from the line called Finlay's Estate by Cloud9 Designs. I love their paper. Card stock is stampin Up, as is the sentiment, and the leaves are from prima. No flowers for this boy, lol.

My second card is also from the spring set. Isn't she pretty- I think she is my favorite. All the card stock is bazzil and I have no idea who the sentiment stamp is from- I've had it for years. The little oyster baubles are by http://www.stampingbella.com/. The little swirls around her are rub ons by Heida Grace.











Well that is it for today. Good luck to all those that are entering this design challenge. If you haven't entered but would like to you can fing the info here.
Hope everyone has a great week.

These two cards look great! I love both of them - I don't think I can pick a fave. They both remind me of my two little ones!!!
