Whiff of Joy July Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to Whiff of Joy July Blog Hop! If you have arrived from Henrikke's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog. I don't want you to miss a single stop on this hop!

WoJ's new release included beloved Henry. The new Henry images have him dressed as a race car driver and a fireman. You know they would be perfect for boy cards! And of course there is a super cute new stamp from the new Simply Maya line. Here is my card using this adorable image.

Awww....  A little tea party with Maya, who wouldn't like that? My favorite is Mr. Bear. He looks like a cool cucumber and very handsome! =)

This image is called Tea Party and it's colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die.

The patterned paper is from Paper Cottage 6x6 Paper Pad by BasicGrey. I cut out a little label from one of the patterned paper and stamped the sentiment from Heyday Sentiments set by Hero Arts/Studio Calico over it. I also based my card design on the sketch from Challenge #134 over at Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. I tool the sketch for a spin and simplified it a bit.

That's it for now. It's time to send you to Kathrin's Blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way, THREE lucky commenters will each win one of the stamps from the new release and one of the wonderful Whiff of Joy metal dies. There are 3 secret stops on the hop, so be sure to leave a comment on each one of the DT's blogs. You just don't know which ones are the lucky ones! A complete list of the hop can be found at the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog, just in case you get lost along the way. Remember, to be eligible to win, you must comment on each blog of the hop!

The hop will remind open until midnight CEST (Central European Summer Time) Sunday, July 22nd. Winners will be announced at the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog. Have fun hopping and good luck! =)
