fairy princessGood Afternoon All

Well this card was very much inspired by the current Mojo Monday challenge as I had a real mental block for some reason this week!

I find it quite hard sometimes when I’m asked to make cards and personalise them. Never quite sure how to get all the information on the card that they want, so this layout came just at the right time and worked really well.

It’s a A5 card, and I’ve used¬†bright yellow card to border the design papers and then for the tags, as this tied in nicely with the little crown, the pink ribbon and brads are from my stash and the image is from a Buzz Crafts pack.

Hopefully the little girl likes it, apparently she into princesses at the moment ūüôā

So, now I need to go and do my Mother’s Day card for Sunday, let’s hope my mojo is back up and running!

Thanks for dropping by

Good Evening All

Really wasn’t sure where to start with this card today.¬† It’s for my best friend, who lost her mother a year ago to cancer and I just want to let her know that I shall be thinking about her this weekend on the anniversary.

Couldn’t quite decide what image to use, but I thought this one from my¬†Faye Whittaker CD was quite appropriate.¬† I’ve also used one of the background sheets from the CD, cutting it in different places to maintain the horizon line at the back.

The layout is this week’s Mojo Monday challenge and I’ve just teamed it up with some blue card from my stash, some ribbon, baker’s twine and a shell that I had for some reason!¬†Quite handy really ūüôā

Well, I’m knackered¬†and I need to be up early in the morning, so shall love you and leave you all for now, but I shall be back again soon

ChandelierWell Good Evening All

It seems ages¬†since I’ve blogged, or managed to make a card, for that matter!¬† Its all about the puppy at the moment – who is definitely keeping us on our toes ūüôā

Anyhow, I have taken the week off work, so am hoping to get some cards made РI have a list of orders that need doing at some point!  This is at least one that I can cross off the list.

I have used the current Mojo Monday layout, along with papers and ribbon from Craftwork Cards, a vinyl sticker from Papermania and a sentiment from Lily of the Valley which has been stamped and embossed.

Just another 11 cards to go!!!!!!¬† Going be a busy week ūüė¶

(it was supposed to be a rest from work)

Anyway I shall try to be back again soon
