the wrong ball… 20/08/2013

the wrong ballGood Evening All,

Let me explain…. it is my Godson’s birthday on Thursday and I was adamant that he will be 13 and is into football.  But you know that feeling – something niggling in the background 🙂

So, I checked with his mother and yes, he is 13 but he’s into rugby, not football – and you know what men are like about their balls!!!!!

So, last night, rather rapidly, I produced this card using the current Mojo Monday challenge layout, the Country Gent papers by Lily of the Valley & NitWit Collections and Papermania Nostalgia stamps.

I’ve kept it very true to the challenge and as you can see, have added no extra bits at all, mainly because I needed to get it in the post today and secondly cause it was very late and I was very tired!

Anyway, short and sweet again, but still need to do some work this evening 😦

Back again soon

white weddingGood Morning All

Another brief post I’m afraid, but thought I would share this card quickly, before it wings its way to Australia, where a friend of mine gets married next week.

I’ve used the current Mojo Monday challenge layout as my starting point and then decided to stick with just white card, highlighted with the silver mirri board.

As you can see the white card has been embossed using three of the folders in my stash.  The cascading hearts is a Sue Wilson folder and the other two are Darice folders.

The image is a pre-coloured topper from Lily of the Valley, so I can’t take any credit for that.  The sentiment has been die cut using one of the Britannia dies and then the bells are actually a cake decoration, but I cut the back bit off so that it lays flat.

Simple but effective 🙂

Anyway, gotta go, its my turn to buy the cakes today on my way to work!

Back again soon

new homeGood Evening All

This is a bit of a rush job, as it’s been a mad week with one thing and another.  I thought I was organised with my card requirements, but obviously not 😦

Have spent the majority of the weekend at The Great British Craft Festival with my friends, spending far too much money on vital craft supplies!

But tonight I needed to get this new home card done for a friend of mine whose had to move because her job has been relocated.

So, I’ve used the current Mojo Monday challenge layout, a 5×7 card and some Craftwork Cards papers.  The image is a vinyl sticker from Papermania and basically that’s it!

Got a couple of crap weeks ahead of me as well, so not sure how soon I’ll be back, but I will be 🙂
