Mojo Monday

Im so so happy with the card I made for this weeks Mojo Monday. I did the square one as you can see.
Its one of the cards I made for my Aunt, I think it would be suitable for 12 year old girl, I hope she agrees.

Paper, K&company sparkly sweet and the rest for my growing stash. Buttons Basic Grey.

On a sad note the craft shop in my town is closing in 2 weeks!!!!!!!! As the owners are retiring. So I like many other knitters, sewers and crafters in the area have been keeping them busy building up their supplies before the shop shuts, I have bought some papers, stamps and today I go bows, buttons and flowers. They are so pretty but I will down again many times in the next 2 weeks Im sure.

Lots of challenges, done!

Im getting in early with this card, and its so pretty, and pink and ladylike. As an added bonus I have completed 3 challeneges with this one. Firstly My Time To Craft elegant rose and then this lovely sketch from My Grafico and finally it just about fits for Crazy for Challenges Pretty in Pink. Anyway its time for the card, drum roll please......

Its my Mothers day card, see I told you it was early! The text simple says MUM, in sparkly gold, only the best for my Mummy. Materials, Papermania, Doodle bug, MME and some from my stash.

I showed it to my Pops and he said it was lovely and very ladylike so suggested that I make one for my Aunts order. I didnt want to make it exactly the same so I changed it slightly, and came up with this beauty (Im not at all big headed)hahaha, hope you like them.

Polka Doodles

I loved working with this sketch so much that I made 2 cards with it, as a bonus Ive used up some of my stash and my brand new cake stamp.
What I am most pleased about is finally being able to find a use for the bird paper, I never thought I would.

3 in 1

Remember I said I was asked to make 6 birthday cards for my aunt, well I sent them off last week and 2 days later I had a check in the post along with a letter asking for 12 more by the end of March!!!!!! Im in demand!

To meet this request Ive been busy completing 3 challenges with 1 card. I took my inspiration from My Time to Craft for the theme of cats; Allsorts with the colour combination Pink and Brown, and Papertake for the sketch.

Im not too sure if I actually like this card much, my Mum thinks its great but she has to say that! Im going to work on it for a bit and hopefully post a version I am happier with later, this post will have a kind of before and after section. I do like the cat though :)
Part 2
This is the new and improved version. Ive stuk to just pink and brown added some boarders and dropped the you are. I think for this card simple is better. I finished it this afternoon when I got back from work.

O and I flipped the background, but that was from a happy accident (I got the measurements wrong!!) I still like the cat.

Just lovely this sketch.
But its also my very first entry for a Polka Doodles challenge.

Papertake 31

My Aunt was so impressed with her Christmas card that she has asked me to make her 6 Birthday cards, shes going to pay me for them too! Thats a little bit more to add to the holiday fund.
I used the sketch from this weeks Papertake challenge for one of the cards

I got to use up lots of bits and pieces from stash to make this card which is good. I think the pattern was from a magazine Ive had it so long I cant remember which one. Its not the best picture though so I do apologise for that

Thank you card

This is one of the thank you cards I made for Christmas, and its my personal favourite. It was going to be for Mojo Monday too, but I forgot to add the embellishment! OOoooops! But its still going to be entered in this weeks Creative Inspiration challenge.
I used one of my new stamps that I got at a Christmas Market along with lots of paper from my stash that I seem to have collected with out realising! I also got to use up some of the silver letters I used for my Christmas Cards. You cant see the writing in this picture but it does say THANK YOUBut you can see it in this close up of the lovely stamp. Thanks for visiting I hope you like my card, Im looking forward to many more challenges for 2010.
