Whiff of Joy Stars and Stripes- Happy 4th of July!

Of course, we had to go with the Stars and Stripes theme at Whiff of Joy Challenges - Happy 4th of July to all my bloggy American friends!
As you can see, I've gone with a red and white theme using the cute little Henry with Cake!
I recently purchased a couple of Hero Art stamp and emboss sets in the sale and this is one of them.  You just pick up the embossing detail in the above picture, and I'm rather pleased with my purchase! The Hugs and Kisses borders were cut with a Whiff of Joy die, the Ribbon was a purchase ages ago from Ikea and the sentiment is best matey's, Lesley's which I borrowed during our fab play day at the weekend.
A couple of Woodware punch stars, a bit of Baker's Twine and some Card Candy and I was done!
This fortnight we are being sponsored by the fab Katherina at Whiff of Joy (got my order last night, thanks Katherina!) and you could win a  luverly voucher that entitles you to 15% of your next order with WOJ!

You can check out the awesome makes of my WOJ teamies here and we have our new DT members joining us from this challenge, so take a peek here for a treat!
I had a really odd dizzy spell yesterday morning - woke up and felt like I'd drunk about three bottles of wine and everything was spinning!  It eventually stopped and managed to get into work, but still feeling a little light-headed and queasy today.  wouldn't mind if I had one or two over the top!
Thanks for popping in!
