Mojo Monday

Ive had this card for Mojo Monday almost finished since Tuesday, I needed to wait for my trip to Hobbycraft to buy the tape to finish it off. It was such a FAB sketch I couldnt wait to get started on it.
This is the first card I did and my entry for the challenge.

Card and Ribbon: from Stash, sorry cant remember who made it.

Font: French Script. I think it fits perfectly

Paper: October Afternoon. Ive had this paper for so long now Im so glad Ive finally used it.

This card for my boss, I think she will be suitably impressed. I went to extra effort to make sure I got everything straight and spelt correctly. She is the kind of person that would say "I can see its handmade, youve spelt Christmas wrong"

I loved working with this sketch so much that I have made quite a few more cards based on the initial design, with a few slight tweeks.

Im taking a break from Christmas cards tomorrow I need to do a good luck and birthday card before I finish my Christmas cards. Perhaps I will use the next Mojo Monday Challenge.

Sketch Saturday

This is my entry for this weeks sketch saturday, posted just in time. Firstly the sketch...

so much possiblity here. I decided to use the sketch to make a card for somebody special.I changed it a little bit, but I like it this way. My Pa has gone back to work now so he wont be home for Christmas which makes me sad but then it makes me happy (ish) to know he has this to open on the big day.

I used papers from Basic Grey and Dovercraft, Card from my Stash and Tinsel Dots from Crafty people.

Ive been busy

Ive been feeling a bit down recently so Ive been trying to keep myself busy. Ive made so many cards, some not for challenges, some for challenges. Only thing is Ive been so busy I cant remember what challenges they were!!! That probably means Ive missed the deadline, oops!
O well I love the cards anyway so they are still worth showing off.
Ill start with the 2 birthday cards I made for my Mum a coiple of weeks ago, I cant remember what I used to make them as it was all from my stash. This is the one from me ...
...and this is the one from my Dad.

These are my favourite 2 christmas cards I made this weekend. I used lots of the basic grey papers I bought last weekend at the Christmas Craft show at the NEC. They are so lovely to work with.

But my favourite bit is the Trimcraft paper at the bottom, and the tinsel toppers. I love christmas.

2 for the price of 1

I think Ive only managed this once before, so I am actually feeling really really pleased with myself for managing to complete 2 challeneges with 1 card. Firstly the cooking challenge on a spoonful of sugar, and then at My time to craft the challenge was to rip it up.

Here is what I came up with.
I didnt mean to post that photo and now I cant delete it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This one is a bit clearer, but you still have to look closely at the top of the light blue strip to see where I have ripped it!!
Hope you like it. Ill keep it brief tonight as I still have pressies to wrap for Mothers Bday tomorrow, yes she'll be 21 again.
