To mark  this second anniversary of the challenge each of the Design Team members (see here) have made a special Thank You card. I had no idea in my earlier post quite how much Whiff Of Joy & those associated with its various functions was to continue to influence me in my crafting. This is my penultimate posting as a Guest Designer for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge Blog - an experience which has taught (& continues to do so) me much through the contact with its very international past & present Design Team Members, Followers & Simon Says Stamp. Hence this is not only a "Thank You" as a member of the Challenge Blog Design Team but a personal one also in which my fellow Design Team Members are included.

Finally, a special thank you also to Jane who currently coordinates the Challenge Blog Design Team.

It is only as I am writing this post that the aptness of my choice of the "joy fold" card for Whiff Of Joy has struck me. It is the first time I have made one of these (I based it upon this Splitcoast Stampers tutorial but adapted the measurements) which I thoroughly enjoyed & will make again.
