More Whiff of Joy



Two more whiff of joy cards the first one is Charlie and his dog I was trying to stay away from traditional Christmas card colours. The papers are DCWV and the card is Bazzil.
I am quite happy with the layout of this card but not so happy with the colouring of the image the colours on the dog aren't right will have another go today.



The second one is Charlotte carol singing again not traditional colours I am not sure where this colour combo has come from but I do quite like it! The papers are SU and the layout is very simple but I do like the simplicity of it.

The light here is so bad at the moment day and night as it has been just the most miserable August and September so far. I invested in a daylight lamp yesterday. It was quite a bit of money but I do think I will get good use out of it, just need a way of taking some decent photos now!!!

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

two fabby cards Sue and very different colours, but I think I like! I got a daylight lamp at the Exeter show in January and wouldn't be without it now, especially when I'm colouring. I still prefer to take my photos in proper daylight though! have a great weekend, annie x

Fantabulous cards Suzanne, lvoe the colours and papers you have used for both of them. I know what you mean about battling to photograph with the poor light, it's impossible to get a decent picture (my camera nearly went out of the window today lol). Here's hoping for an indian summer!!!
