Mother & Child + a candy

Happy Sunday, my friends!! Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! Here are a few cards I made using images from Whiff of Joy Stamps to share with you.

This stamp is called Mother & Child illustrated by Norma Fickel. It's such a sweet image for a mother's day card!

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye's Be Loved collection.

The sweet Katharina has kindly sent me one extra Mother & Child stamp so that I could do a little giveaway. I am throwing in a mini Shopping Willow stamp and a few lovely charms also available at Whiff of Joy Stamps online store. Here is the candy:

All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post and I will draw a lucky winner to receive this little candy. This giveaway will open until Monday March 29th at 11:59 PM PST. The winner will be announced in my Tuesday post.

Here are two more cards that I made also using Whiff of Joy stamps a little while ago.

Here is a card that I made for a post I did for the Whiff of Joy Tutorial & Inspiration blog. I used a pretty Willow image from the store stamp kit - Blooming Spring for this card. Here is a link to the tutorial if you are interested.

I made this card for a blog post for The Hybrid Chick. I used the adorable Strawberry Girl stamp from Norma Fickel's Spring, Easter & Mother's day release at Whiff of Joy for my card. The papers are from a digital kit called " 5 Things I Love About You" created by Karen Lewis. Since Strawberry Girl is holding a strawberry, I decided to use the very cute Sweet Strawberry Template Set by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs to finish my project. Here is the link to the post I did for The Hybrid Chick if you are interested.

Thanks for sticking around for the long post. Hope you have a lovely Sunday! =)
