Whiff of Joy Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Whiff of Joy Christmas Blog hop!!


You should have arrived here from the gorgeous and talented Murielle, if you didn't you might want to hop on over to Katharina's blog so you don't miss any of the amazing creations that the Whiff of Joy Design Team, past and present, have created for you!

I have made a lantern to share with you using the gorgeous Praying Angel by Elizabeth Bell which was one of the November release stamps. 


The initial idea for the Blog Hop was for each of us to send a little something to another DT member they they could use on their cards. Murielle posted to me the gorgeous handmade tag you can see hanging on the latnern. I was also lucky to receive some stunning metal corners and red berries from Jacque while she was briefly with the team.


I posted to Michaela some paper lace doilies to use so I've used one here as a base for my lantern and I posted to Michele a pearl pin and some holly leaves that I have also used here in the photo above.

Isn't this angel stunning? I am not really a religious person, but I seem to keep inking up these lovely angels to colour. They look so peaceful.

Here you can see the swirls I've cut using the Romantic Swirls die.

And lastly, a view of the top of the lantern. I followed a fabulous tutorial by Norma to make my lantern, it was actually pretty simple to make, the insutructions were terrific! Thanks so much Norma :)

The next stop on the hop is the very sweet Michaela and I know she will have something amazing to show you.

There is also a wonderful prize for a lucky hopper of a €30 voucher at Whiff of Joy! All you have to do is hop along and end  you will find the prize! Just leave a comment there for your chance to win! 

Did you know that there is also a 20% discount Christmas voucher at Whiff of Joy at the moment? Just use the code on the voucher below to save on the wonderful stamps, dies and embellishments at Whiff of Joy! How generous is Katharina? Thank you so much!


Thank you so much for hopping along on our Christmas blog hop! Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best wishes for 2011!

I would also like to enter this project into the following challenges:
