Whiff of Joy Challenge 76.

Hello, hope you are all having a great week so far! I am getting my last wisdom tooth out tomorrow, yay me. I only got the top right out on Friday. The bottom one is where they have to cut the bone so it’s harder to get out and a longer recovery. I’m so busy this week, sitting down to do this post is the first I’ve sat down in 2 days. On Saturday it’s out Fussy and Fancy get together so I’m preparing the projects for that, plus my design team commitments, my dentist appointment on top of “mom” stuff. Being a SAHM and full time crafter is work I’ll tell ya! But I enjoy it!

This week over at Whiff of Joy we have a fabulous sketch by the one and only Bev Rochester! I love how simple the sketch is it makes room for lots of layers and embellishments! I did something I miss and haven’t done in a while, I water colored Melinda. Boy do I miss doing that! I will need to get some new colors. I just used my plain ole SU inks and aqua painters. Oh and don’t you love the little Zva Crystals on her headband and dress!!!

I will be back Friday with our Fussy and Fancy Challenge!
