Whiff of Joy and a Friday Sketchers challenge

Meet Lizzie! This is one of the new Lizzie & Herb stamps from Whiff of Joy. I fell for this sweetie as soon as I saw her hand and ear muffs. When I was a little girl one of my older sisters had a hand muff and, yes I admit it, I coveted that muff. I thought it was the epitome of elegance.

Over at Friday Sketchers the challenge 32 layout for the week is this layout and it is perfect for my new stamp.

I don't generally do square cards because I didn't have the proper envelopes but I found some and I have to say that I really enjoy doing the square cards which allow a better use of space and layout I think.

My little Lizzie is standing in snow made with Ivory colored flower soft. I punched a few snowflakes using my Martha Stewart snowflake punch layered them adding a few pearls.

I used the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder for the snowflake panels behind the image. The sentiment stamp is from an All Night Media, Anna Griffin sentiment set.

I think this image will be fun to use for general notecards throughout the winter months as well as during holiday times. Living in such a cold and snowly place as I do I like to have general winter themed stamps for holidays, birthdays and general greeting cards.

Well, as expected, we have more snow to shovel so I had better get outside and do it. I'm sure I won't look as elegant as little Miss Lizzie here, but I'll definitely be snow covered.

Stay warm!


  1. sweet! great colors and the snow looks real. I have some white fur ear muffs circa 195? ~ not the most practical, but they sure are pretty.

  2. I see you fell in love with the same Whiff of Joy stamp as I did! LOL! She is perfect for the sketch, and the background matches the mood of the card beautifully!

  3. She's so adorable! I love the all season stamps rather than actual Christmas stamps. You've also used my favorite winter colours here as well. Great card all around. :)

    There will be beauty in the character.
    If there is beauty in the character,
    There will be harmony in the home.
    If there is harmony in the home,
    There will be order in the nation.
    If there is order in the nation,
    There will be peace in the world.
    So let it be.
