Mojo Monday Challenge

Decided I will enter the round and the square as one entry for this challenge


Mojo Monday challenge sketch take 2 + Allsorts Challenge

Evening All
My daughter and little grandson are just away home so I have time now to upload another card following  Mojo Monday challenge card sketch. This time I used the circle version. I am very pleased at how this little card turned out and think I will box it up for my Mum for Mother's Day.  I used K&Co papers , some turquoise pearlescent card, raffia, ribbon, lace a few pearls and a bit of gold embossing and some distress inks. I am also entering this for Simon Says Stamp- vintage with flowers and Allsorts Challenge blog which is a Mother's Day card

Mojo Monday Sketch challenge card

Hi All
Well originally I went out to my craft room to tidy it but I got sidetracked and decided to enter some blog challenges instead. This is my entry for the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge and I might enter it into the Simon Says stamp challenge which is vintage with flowers. I will have to add a few flowers maybe for the vintage one although there are flowers in the paper. The papers are all K&Co. I inked the edges with distress inks and then them  layered up, I  added some gold embossing powder to the edges of a square of the flowered paper which I matted onto some bazzil cardstock, some ribbons , a tag which I also embossed with gold powder and some pearls and I'm finished. I hope it looks vintage lol

A closer look at the embossing

Thinking of You card

This is a card I made with a design sheet I was sent from Nicky put out a plea for help on the docrafts forum and this the result of my effort for her. I used a lovely mushroom decoupage sheet which I added some glitter, gold mirri and ribbons to. I have made it as a Thinking of You card as I needed to make one but I think it would be lovely as a New Home card.

Easel Card + Fridays Sketchers Challenge

This is a card I have made for a swap on another forum. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. The papers are from Die Cuts With a View. The image is Sarah Kay and was coloured with distress inks. The flowers are prima and the centre one was one I received in a recent swap. The sentiment is from a K& Co set.
 Hope you like it

Been a bad blogger!

I haven't added anything to my blog for a while as I haven't been very motivated to make cards but I think my mojo has returned . This is a card for my daughter's friend who is 21 today. Some of the letters are raised and I added some little bows of different ribbons and fibres.

Going away for a wee break

Hubby is now off for a couple of weeks holiday so we have decided to take ourselves off for a few days. We are heading to Knockranny House Hotel and Spa in Co. Mayo Ireland. It is in Westport a beautiful town not far from the coast. It has a spa as well so we are going to have some rest,some pampering and plenty of good food. I am so looking forward to it but not going until Monday. I will have to get a few cards made before then, I feel as I have been neglecting my blog this past few days.
All for now
