Mojo Monday (on a roll)

2 posts in 1 day, Im on a roll now! Im so glad I found a sketch to use these beautiful papers. Here is my entry for this weeks Mojo Monday. First of all the sketch. (love it)

And heres the card. I think its missing something, but Im not sure, I still like it though!

All the papers are from Papermania Home for Christmas set, Ive been longing to use these papers they are just gor-JUS!

Hope you like

Busy hands

Here are a few of the things I have been keeping myself busy with for the past week.

I liked the purple ones so much I made the same in green. I think the lay out was from a sketch from Mojo Monday, but I was too slow in finding my camera so missed my chance to enter, oops! I need to get a move on posting for this weeks challenge or Ill miss it again.

You cant see the text very well, it says Santa Claus is coming to town.

I love these, but they werent for a challenge. The text simply says CHRISTMAS in sparkly letters, we all need a bit of sparkle sometimes.

and finally some beautiful twinkly blue stars, again not for a challenge, but I like these so I thought I would post them. Hope you like them too.

Autumn Glory

I made this card last saturday and I cant believe it has taken me so long to post it!! I should have an excuse but Ive just been busy and then a bit lazy, my bad! Anyway I need to do this quickly as Im off out tonight so I will get to the point.

Its a birthday card for my sister in law from my parents, technically a commission, haha! I bought the paper a little while ago because I thought it was lovely, but I wasnt sure what I would do with it until I found the butterflies on sale and saw the challenge at One Stop Craft ChallengeBut I going to be bold and enter it in this months By the Cute and Girly too. The designs already entered in both challenges are 100% fabulous and make me feel a teeny tiny bit inadequate, but blow it Im still entering.

I hope you like :)

Tuesday Morning

Another card that is soon to be (if not already) finding its way across the equator to the family in South Africa. It is also my entry for the weeks Tuesday Morning SketchI did plan it to be landscape, but my Mum prefered it portrait.
Supplies Paper - Dovercraft (butterflies) K & Company (green)
Letters - Making Memories
Card - from the stash
I really really enjoyed working with this sketch its so versatile and pretty; Im working on a Christmas card in the same style.
Ive got other cards to post about, but its been a busy weekend and I still want to have a look at other blogs, so Ill have to save it for another time.
