party listGood Evening All,

So in amongst the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cards, I did actually manage to do one other card using the current Mojo Monday challenge layout for a friend whose birthday it is this week.

I have used the Afternoon Daydream Scrappin Kit from Stampin Up again for my design papers and embellishments.  I’ve just added a bit of matching ribbon and some card candy.

The list has been hand written and is very particular to Stella, who likes her cider!!!!!  I’m hoping it will give her a giggle – we all need one this week, it’s been horrific at work.

Thankfully I now have a couple of weeks off and will be heading to Spain for a few days of rest and relaxation.

So will have to love you and leave you all as I really need to start packing 🙂

Back again soon

Ninja Mutant TurtlesJust a quick post, for those of you interested.

These are the other 4 cards I made that had to have images of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It’s not a great picture, but gives you an idea 🙂

mutant ninja turtlesGood Afternoon Everyone

This is the first of 5 cards that I have been asked to make for a colleagues grandson, who is 2 in a couple of weeks, so I shall be a tad busy for a few days 😐

I’ve used an A5 card base layered up with a pale yellow card, which doesn’t show up very well and then the turquoise card.  The image has been downloaded from the internet and then layered onto black and white card.

The layout is from the current Mojo Monday challenge, which I rely on most weeks!

Since taking the photo, I have now added the word “nephew” to the bottom of the card in the pale yellow to personalise it for my colleague.  Now I just need to do the rest, 1 x Grandson, 1 x Son, 1 x Brother and another Nephew – wish me luck 🙂

Back again soon



off to a “roaring” start…. 08/09/2013

Roar..Good Evening All

Sincere apologies for my absence, been doing 12 hour days at work over the last month whilst we had some refurbishment works going on, so no time for anything else other than eating and sleeping 😦

Back to normal now, I hope, so decided it was time for a crop with the usual gang.  I set a colour challenge of Brown, Blue and Orange (these are the new colours following the refurb at work) – what was I thinking?

So, last night I pulled all my stash out trying to work out what to do today and eventually plumped for dinosaurs – as you do!

Inspired by some Basic Grey papers, which thankfully included all three colours, I then selected a “stampin up” stamp set which gave me the dinosaur – a Tyrannosaurus Rex, I believe, and the sentiment.  Some burnt orange card to layer up, my promarkers to colour the image, a bone from a Jolly Nation decoupage sheet and an old Mojo Monday challenge layout and hey presto, the finished article 🙂

Not too bad going, bearing in mind, I really haven’t done anything for sooooooooo long.

In fact, everyone got stuck in today and produced some really lovely cards – so a good day all in all.

The challenge has been set for next time – Autumn Leaves – so roll on October 🙂

Should be back again sooner than that though all being well
