Mojo Monday contest

You can always rely on Mojo Monday for a brilliant sketch and I make many cards to complete their challenges, even if I dont get round to posting them!
This is the first time however I have completed one of the monthly contests, this was such a nice sketch to work with, I feel like I always say that!

Im getting in early with my friends birthday card, I dont need to post it for another 3 weeks, but I think this layout and the images are perfect for her. I was so happy to finally use some of the Sweet Stack from DCWV and letters from the Honey and Hugs collection. Ive had them for a while but they are so pretty Ive been a bit scared of using them! I hope you like it, Im sure she will :)

Totally Paper Crafts

I just loved loved loved loved working with this totally brilliant sketch from TotallyPaperCrafts, you see what I did there! I cant say enough how great it is, it could be used for so many different kinds of cards, but for now its my Grandad's easter card.

CUTE! Well I think it is. Except for the gems in the middle of the flowers all the materials were from a Goody bag I picked up at a card demo a few weeks ago. Its from the Papermania Capsule collection. The Sunshine range. Its lovely to work with and if I had the money Id buy one of each.

Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

10 things for (the rest of) 2010

Sometimes I need to make lists just to make sure I get things done, and I think this is a perfect illustration of the point. Somethings on this list I have been wanting to do/ have a go at for ages and never got round to. By putting it on here I have to do it, and ofcourse share the results.
So no more stalling these are 10 things I would like to make this year.

1. A bag charm. I finally have the perfect bag, not too big, not too small, goes with everything, has the right number of pockets and so on. Now I just need to fancy it up a bit.
2. A 1 off tshirt. Nothing plain and boring like most of my wardrobe.
3. A special birthday cake and gift. The old man hits the big 6-0 this year and I love my Daddy so Id like to something special for him.
4. A collage for my bedroom wall.
5. A cookbook. One that looks great and then I want to actually use the recipes!

6. A Charm necklace / Statement necklace. I always see lovely necklaces but I never wear them so I figure if I make it I will love it and then wear it.
7. Something patchwork. It looks so cute.
8. Calendars for 2011
9. Homemade toiletries. This may just be a pipedream.
10 Sketch books, I want to draw, collage, design, photograph just for the love of it.
