Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call and A Sad News..

Maybe you've noticed my absence from the blogland this week, it's because my dear Grandpa died on Sunday.
He was a great man, one of the people that never go unnoticed, one of a kind.
I think that all those who never got the chance to meet him, those who never knew him, they missed a lot. He was part of my life for 26 years, I'm very sad and I miss him so much.
I just hope that wherever he is now, that he is happy and I'm grateful for thousands of beautiful memories he left behind.
I had no time for cards these days, nor I felt like making cards in the first place, but today I just needed to create something and I wanted to use one of my Whiff of Joy, Fall Kit stamps.

I want to enter the Whiff of Joy GDT call (it's still open) with this card. So if you haven't entered yet, you have time to do so till September 19th, 8pm CET.

Here is my card:

I really love Autumn. I love the make Autumn cards, to play with gorgeous Autumn colours and embellies.
I used Fall Willow catching leaves and Large Pumpkings stamps from the Whiff of Joy for this card. The papers are Basic Grey. The sentiment stamp is also Whiff of Joy. The corner stamp is from the Queen Kat Designs. The yellow roses were bought at Bunny Zoes Crafts. The lace and the rope are from stash.

The images were coloured with watercolours.

This is my third time entering the GDT calls at Katharina's from the Whiff of Joy. The last two times I wasn't succesful and I honestly don't expect much this time, either. Everyone who knows me, knows that I love Whiff of Joy stamps from the beginning and I just wanted to make a card, which I must say, I'm pleased with.

So, if you still haven't entered the Whiff of Joy GDT call , just follow the link to see what you should do to apply. You have time till tommorow (Saturday 19th 8pm CET).

We are not sure when the challenges will continue. Thank you to everyone who loved and entered our challenges in the last three months. We appreciate your support.
And thank you Kimmi and Donna, for giving me the opportunity to work with all the great ladies from the team and for the fabulous challenge blog that Stampin' for the Weekend is. Both Kimmi and Donna are wonderful ladies and great people. My thoughts are with you girls.
